Keeping Central European alpine folklore alive, the Krampus is coming to town! Since the 17th century, Krampus has traditionally accompanied St. Nicholas and angels on the evening of December 5 to visit households to reward children that have been good. The ones who have not get a very special visit from the Krampus, a demon-like creature with rusty chains and bells. Take a look at the pictures from a Krampus fest in Austria. These kids are getting right into the spirit of the holidays, and not a single tear or look of terror in sight!
