1913 - Kalikantzarol

In Greece the kalikantzarol are generally represented as mere tricky sprites who live, as a rule, underground, appearing to men only on the nights of the year between December 25 and January 6. They pass the days during this period in dark caverns, where they subsist on serpents and lizards, and come forth to dance in the moonlight, either alone or in company with the nereids, and also with mortal women, if they can lure any to join them.
