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.
