Santa Claus Helper is Krampus aka Baphomet
According to pagans of witchcraft, elves, like fairy’s, are spirits that live in the woods. They would play tricks on people in their homes and were malevolent beings. They evolved into what American’s call “Santa’s Little Helpers”.
It all goes back to worshipping nature and the forest.
Santa’s little helpers would be at the North Pole working on toys or whatever they do and Krampus, a half goat half man demon, would accompany Santa Claus during his worldwide trip.
If the child was good, Santa would give them a gift. If they were bad, Krampus would abduct them, bean them and even kill them.
Krampus also goes by the name of Pan who also goes by the name of Cernunnos and all of these spirits are half goat half man. Pan would run around the forest, taking care of sheep and goats and would sleep around with nymphs or prostitutes.
“Pan, the noisy goat-footed god of the Greeks, looks after shepherds and woods, is a capable musician, and invented the instrument named for him, panpipes. He leads the nymphs in dances. He stirs up panic. He is worshiped in Arcadia and is associated with sexuality.” – NS Gill an Ancient History Expert
