It's the holiday season, and Creepy History is wrapping up Season 1 with two creepy takes on Christmas. First up, Fraser tells us the origins and mythology behind Santa's creepy, evil assistant Krampus. Then, Jen takes us to Texas for the Santa Claus Bank Robbery and one of the wildest capers you will ever hear about. For today's Creepy Cocktail: Eggnog. And not just any Eggnog, it's the traditional Coffeen family Eggnog. Drink up, listen up, and be nice so Krampus doesn't stuff you in his sack.

*Yes, you're eating raw eggs. No, it's not exactly safe. Consume at your own risk.
**OK, I'm just giving you the recipe here, but let's be honest, this is a LOT of booze. I typically half this, and then adjust to taste.
