Dec 6th Fri, 6-10pm – Celebrate Krampusnacht with arty Chicago mobile photo booth GlitterGuts here at Quimby’s. Get your picture taken with the Krampus, the xmas demon known to punish children during the Yule season for their misbehavior. We here at Quimby’s would like to show our customer appreciation by helping you creep out the people in your life with photos of you getting reprimanded by this traditional Germanic holiday beast.
Krampus (from the German “Krampen,” or “Claw,” or “Giddy Child Murderer”) was born of a pre-Christian, Alpine Pagan tradition, and has been described as a “boozy goat-horned menace that whips children around Europe.” December 6th is the day in which parts of Germany and Bavaria celebrate Krampusnacht, which is a throwback to a pre-Christian tradition. The Krampus’ job is to punish those who have been bad, while Santa rewards the people on his “nice” list. Krampus punishes the naughty children, swatting them with switches and rusty chains before dragging them in baskets to a fiery place below. And we’ve got Krampus here for you to pose with on Dec 6th, hooves and all.
