Amanda and Sarah have a Merry Creepmas with stories about old seasonal celebrations and vengeful Japanese spirits. Sarah heads back to ancient Rome for a primer on the myths and merriment of Saturnalia and its influence on traditions over the centuries. Amanda heads overseas for a look at Teke Teke and Kuchisake-onna, two onryō spirits who terrorize children and lone commuters. Other subjects covered include the demands of witchery, Facebook Marketplace horrors, and holiday-crazy Germans.
Sarah recommends the HBO period series Gentleman Jack. Amanda recommends the 1972 holiday proto-slasher Home for the Holidays.
