Krampus

Usually Krampus comes to Austria the 5th of December, before St. Nicholas comes (Dec. 6th). But yesterday, on New Year’s Day, Krampus came to the hockey game! I have seen them before on TV and have seen the masks they sell replicating them but have never witnessed Krampus in real life. There is really only one word to describe Krampus. Terrifying.

Absolutely TERRIFYING.

I could not imagine being a child and seeing this. This must be why all the Austrian children are the most well-behaved children I have ever seen.

Wondering what Krampus is … Check out Christoph Waltz explaining the whole concept to Jimmy Fallon …
