I wish you all Merry Christmas with “ Kallikantzaroi“!
I wrote “Kallikantzaroi” back in 2005.

What is “Kallikantzaroi”?
From Wikipedia: Kallikantzaroi is a malevolent goblin in Greek folk tradition. They dwell underground but come to the surface during the twelve days of Christmas, from 25 December to 6 January (from the winter solstice for a fortnight during which time the sun ceases its seasonal movement).
It is believed that Kallikantzaroi stay underground sawing the World tree, so that it will collapse, along with Earth.
