Vintage-Xmas-Pin-up-girls-7

So, it’s been officially two years since we first premiered The Eye of Faith, and this year more than any has been a roller coaster! Lots of highs, some lows, but overall a helluva good time! I can’t express how much joy it gives me to see everyday the hordes of readers that flock to The Eye of Faith, and all I can say to that is we are extremely grateful for all the worldwide support we have been getting!

I love to wake up in the morning and see your comments, and scan your likes, and see where you’re all coming from. It’s quite the thrill.

Granted, not everyone gets it, but those who do, I’m happy we found what you were looking for!

So, in true E.O.F. fashion we wanted to give back a bit to our readers, and have curated a Crazy Xmas Holiday Gift Gallery for you all to muse over. There’s plenty of awesome vintage inspiration in the midst of this gallery so watch out for all the weird, wacky, lame, and tame offerings we have gathered for you all, and hope you sincerely enjoy!

Krampus Christmas Time! Santa’s Personal Devil Side-Kick Might Just Be Visiting a House Near You . . .

Krampus4

You better not shout. You better not cry. You better not pout, I’m telling you why . . . Krampus is coming to town!

That’s right, kids! Hide under your blankets, and seal your window tight, because this Holiday Season not only calls for the arrival of our good friend St. Nick, but along with the classic jolly do-gooder also comes his hungry devil friend!

No, my words are not tied. You heard it right! A devil friend! Every year for many hundreds of years, European tradition has depicted a very cruel and very hideous counterpart to Santa known as Krampus.

P1020939

Krampus is pretty much your stereotypical vision of the devil: red fur, horns, claws, even a weird sick little tongue he likes to stick out. Best part of all is he likes to carry around chains to beat and whip the kids that get in his way!!!

Throughout Northern Italy, Austria, and other parts of Europe, people celebrate Krampusnacht in honor of this holiday beast. Party-goers dress up as demons, devils, and witches, masquerading through the town intoxicated and terrifying adults and children, alike!

Many people believe this tradition dates back thousands of years to Pagan traditions where both Krampus and Santa Clause can be seen in the archetypes of Old Man Winter and the Goat-Man. This must also be part of the whole SANTA = SATAN mythology.

Krampus isn’t a character you see anymore in the mainstream, but during the 19th Century and early 20th Century a huge craze for Krampus Greeting Cards swept Europe.

Surreal and a little cheeky, there is no avoiding the grim horror of such a devil beast actually torturing and even eating children for Christmas! But, seeing as this is The Eye of Faith, we thought some of these cards would be the perfect thing to share with our readers, and perhaps we may even start to see a resurgence! (This would make Krampus very happy . . .)

{Special Thanks to Morbid Anatomy for some of the Krampus pics . . . }

I always thought something was missing to the story of Christmas. Now it all seems to make (a bit more) sense . . .

Don’t forget to share these with your friends, and for more images and to learn more about the traditions of Krampus, please visit the official site!

Thanks for reading, and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

{theEye}

Crazy Christmas: Hillarious Vintage Holiday Advertising !

EOF Crazy Christmas- Just What I Asked For

{“You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!”}

There are pretty crazy things out there these days, but the holiday season of the past was truly a weird and wild place, where you can never expect what you might find leafing through your holiday catalog, or coffee table magazines.

Dozens of inappropriate, odd, and down right bizarre suggestions can be found looking through vintage publications; most of which would never EVER make it to the pages of a magazine or catalog today.

We decided to share just a few of our favorites, and hope you enjoy them too!

{ Naught Santa! I guess everyone deserves their kicks . . .}

Twas the Night Before Xmas….Well Almost.

Have you finished your holiday shopping yet?

Few more stops, and we’ll be there! It’s hard to believe believe that in only a few nights that Jolly Man in Red will appear! Hope he can find his way without a chimney….

Something makes me think he knows a lot more about the real world than we can even begin to imagine! Talk about Hyperspace . . . All I know is, no matter what we’re celebrating, we can all come together to celebrate our love, life, and family.

Being a vintage company, we’re looking forward to a Very Vintage Xmas this year! Hope you are too! There’s something comforting in bringing the past with you, especially during the Holidays! It’s the best time to visit old memories, perhaps some lost ones too.

We hope you’re all having fun out there, and always appreciate the support. So, here’s one for all of you out there:

Enjoy!

Christmas Wrapping

With the joy of the Christmas season around the corner, you better believe we have some christmas wrapping to tend to. The Eye brings you some holiday cheer from the 80’s in the form of The Waitresses!

And Just because… Here’s a cool vintage ad featuring ol’Saint Nick!
