Human sacrifice, Yule logs, mistletoe...what do all 3 of these things have in common? Easy - Christmas AND Paganism. I’m breaking the door open on the origins of Christmas and Creeps, it’s DARK.
From the ancient Romans who celebrated Saturnalia to the Vikings who poisoned human sacrifices with mistletoe to Charles Dickens ghost stories....the history of Christmas is long, varied, dark and stolen. So grab some wine, prepare a feast and settle in for a crazy night of lore and Yule while I celebrate with some of my favorite ghosts of Christmas’s past.
I am so honored to have had an amazing cast to portray some of my favorite historical people. I also can’t thank my crew enough and all the people that donated money and shared this project with people in order to get it funded and make it actually happen. This project literally wouldn’t have happened without the unbelievable support, hard work and time put in by my director and best friend Jenn Page and the best Jane a girl could ask for, Producer Jenna Edwards. I am so proud of what we pulled off and I hope all you Creeps enjoyed it.

Merry Christmas, Creeps, thanks for making my Christmas wish come true.
