Call it The Nightmare Before Christmas. Thousands of people gathered in Hollabrunn, Austria, last weekend to witness the traditional Krampus run.
In Germanic folklore, Krampus – an anamorphic goat-beast who beats misbehaving children rather than give them coal in their stockings, is the evil companion of Santa Claus.
Austria has a Krampus parade, can we trade our dozens upon dozens of Xmas parades for at least a few Krampus Parades here please?
Krampus, the ancient folklore who punishes naughty children around Christmas, gets his own FESTIVAL in Austria and it is TERRIFYING!
