This Festival is Austria’s Nighty Children Before Christmas

This Festival is Austria's Nighty Children Before ChristmasCall 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!
