Hang your stockings, Say your prayers, From the forest, Come the terrors
Put up your tree, look outside, Here they come, Dark night's tide
Wish you may, Wish you might, They'll do more, than simple fright
Hang your stockings, Say your prayers, brave the night, do you dare?

That's great!  Is that something you came up with looking at my image?  Another poem was brought to my attention that fits my illustration quite well. I've included it here and added it to my blog.
   
    Like one, that on a lonesome road
    Doth walk in fear and dread,
    And having once turned round walks on,
    And turns no more his head;
    Because he knows, a frightful fiend
    Doth close behind him tread.

-"Rime of the Ancient Mariner" A Stanza from Part VI

That stanza does fit it quite well~

Oh, didn't you know?

In some cases, before only coal in the stockings was the universal thing...

Santa rolled around with a demon... Who would whip the bad kids... Aren't old time myths fun?

That's a good title. Didn't notice the monster till I got a closer look at things - saw the package that had fallen out of the sleigh then suddenly realized there was a hand above it. I'm wondering where that creature was chained up at... lots of interest and quality of thought process reflected in this image. Thanks for posting it.

Perfect! I'm glad it worked for you! I didn't want to make the monster too obvious!  Thanks for your comment!
