The photograph illustrating this article is the work of Jessie Tarbox Beals, who also created the image used in last year’s installment of “Christma(dnes)s.” It was fascinating to read up on her career in photography. I had no idea she was the very first woman to be hired as a staff photographer by an American …

Christma(dnes)s VII

It may have taken me longer than usual to assemble this year’s selection of frightfully festive fun, but I think the sheer volume of material I dug up was worth it. After all, why should I just focus on the Phantasm ornament or the “Krampus in the Corner” when there’s so much more out there? …

I think it perfectly captures the duality of the season. If you look at it one way, it’s a beautiful winter’s night. But if you …

Bubbe’s Hannah Cat (Hanukkat)

The woman in the above image by famous steampunk artist Brian Kesinger is none other than Veronique Chevalier. If you’re into the steam scene, then you are certainly no stranger to her humorous songs and extravagant performances. One year before she released her debut debut album Polka Haunt Us (and two years after she made …

More Christma(dnes)s

***

In the spirit of last year’s “Christma(dnes)s,” I thought I would share another collection of both weird and wonderful Christmas-related links: The Abominable N. Oremac got me into the Christmas spirit by sending me a link to an article about a Christmas tree in Japan that’s shaped like Godzilla and sprays smoke from “its” mouth. …
