About Julebestiariet /A Christmas Bestiary
In Julebestiariet/A Christmas Bestiary Benni Bødker and John Kenn Mortensen have gathered long forgotten knowledge of the horrors that creeps around in the darkness of Christmas time.
Everybody knows that if you behave, Santa will come bearing gifts. But who comes if you don’t behave? Our ancestors knew that at this time of year the gates to other darker worlds are wide open for terrifying creatures to enter our world.
Knowing how to act around Christmas time is vital in order to avoid or survive crossing paths with one of these ancient beasts. That’s why Benni Bødker and John Kenn Mortensen have teamed up to create A Survival Guide for everyone to know how to survive Christmas time.
