Christmas Creeps (REQUEST)

So help me out friends, does anyone know of good holiday themed pre-code horror stories I could post this year for Christmas? Actually it doesn’t even have to be from the Golden Age, if you’ve got it or know about it from any era please let me know so we can share it with everyone. After all, tis the season to be screamin’…

Well,despite your no EC. policy,theres always Craig's "And all through the house" from VAULT OF HORROR#35,i also recall a Skywald story involving christmas,just can't remember what magazine or issue,Wikipedia also points out a graphic-novel adaption of CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF.and if you believe in Mr. Hankey the Christmas poo,you can always use one of Atlas's Googam era blob stories.

In addition to And All Through the House, EC also did A Sock For Christmas.

The first post-code Christmas stuff that comes to mind are the various Christmas issues of Warren's Creepy (#68, #77, #86 and others I think). Unfortunately, the stories in these issues were generally a notch below their standard.
Web of Horror #3 had Santa's Claws and Forbidden Tales of Dark Mansion #15 had Santa's Claws but I'm sure there were others.

Thanks everyone... to anonymous #2 if you have the Creepy or Santa Claws stories handy can you scan them in to me?

The only one I can think of is "And All Through the House" as well.
I'm having a story contest involving the evils of fruitcake, if anyone is interested in such insanity.
That picture is great, especially the sign that says BRANE.
