Krampus Parade Shows Scary Christmas Traditions

Some countries in the Alps celebrate the birthday of Saint Nicholas, who will bring the children presents on the 6th of December. But, according to ancient legends, creepy creatures live in the mountains and they come and punish naughty children prior to the Saint Nicholas feast.

This so-called Krampus is a really creepy creature, with goat skins, loud cowbells, a whip, a lot of fire and noise and especially a head that is in-between a male-goat and a devil. They often look like creatures from hell or Uruk-Hai Orks from The Lord of the Rings.”
