How old am I: I am 30

My career? Had I a career? Was not — should not — a "career" be something splendid, wonderful, spectacular at the very least, something varied and exciting?

Krampus cards in the early 20th century show him punishing children, yes, but also proposing to women. In some cards, Krampus is portrayed as a large woman whipping tiny men with her birch sticks and carrying them off in her satchel.

In another, a smiling woman dangles a defeated-looking Krampus in the air, holding his bundle of birch sticks behind her back. You can draw your own conclusions about the gender politics in these.

For over a century, most Americans probably never saw a Krampus card or even knew who Krampus was.
