Of old Paxkel,
The beast of blood and fear,
For if on Yule
You find Paxkel
You've lost your Yuletide Cheer.
Paxkel hunts for those who hide
Under bed at night,
For their punishment to escape
From Paxkel's Hellish Sight.
Stalking through the snow and rain
Paxkel finds them all.
Dripping blood of those he's taken,
Pexkel finds those worth braking-
And tries to teach them all.
Keep in mind there are
That you can keep Paxkel away-
Dont curse or shout,
And mind yourself when you are out.
Then, and only then you see,
Will Paxkel not come for you or me.
Paxkel is much like Krampus in the sense he is the one who deals out punishment for bad behavior, but unlike Krampus, and many others like him, Paxkel shows on three holidays instead of simply one. Krampus is known for showing up on Christmas to teach children to behave for their own good, but Paxkel shows up during Yule, Hallow's Eve, and the First Harvest Festival. Each for a different reason, and not for the good of those he punishes; as it is known for him to kill the wrongdoer. There are ways to ward Paxkel off if you cannot contain your bad behavior;
A sprig of holly on your sleeping cap has been known to give him pause and reconsider your punishment for a later year.
A sheaf of wheat at your door will confuse him during the Harvest Festival and he will seek you another time.
Finally, Jack-o-Lanterns are the most effective way to ward off Paxkel the Beast, as the faces alight give him a fright.
Keep these in mind when you're being bad, or else Paxkel will soon visit your bed!
