I guess this is a bit more extreme than giving coal to bad children for the holidays...

Never heard of it, but that is cool in a creepy kind of way.

That's fuckin awesome.
That wouldv'e worked here about 30 years ago, but, too many PC mommies nowdays to let that one fly.

Love those masks.

Damn! That is pretty cool and interesting. I like the lesson of children behaving, lest they be snatched away to become Krampus themselves. Nowadays, the bad kids only get the threat of having coal in their stocking or no presents, but that never happens. Even the bad kids are still getting gifts on Christmas.

I have friends who observe the feast of St Nicholaus, but I don't think they stress Krampusnacht.

Spreading Christmas cheer, to all that is near.
Wonder what would happen if you dressed up like these krampons and followed Christmas carolers around here, or stood outside your local mall to greet everyone.

The US should use the Krampus to regulate those Black Friday fools.

Back when Supernatural was still good, they had an episode where some old world gods acted like the Krampus. Funny episode. First time I had ever heard of it though, but back when I was in elementary I recall some dutch background girl in our class did the shoe on the porch thing and talked about the "bad" Santa.

More on Krampus...
1st vid looks like a more subdued parade:

2nd vid looks like it can get a bit nutty (the flaming horns at the 2:42 mark will be in my nightmares tonight)
