I know, right? I suspect that lack of Krampus is why kids are so unruly these days. He's still all the rage in Northern European culture. They even have a holiday dedicated to him where it's tradition to dress up as Krampus and parade through town causing mayhem and whipping random pedestrians.
I'd imagine George might know something about all of this, being of Nordic descent. This would explain why he's so meek and subdued compared to other characters.
