Krampus; Saint Nicholas' Counterpart

Krampus; Saint Nicholas' Counterpart | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

The name “Krampus” is derived from the old German expression for “claw,” a testament to the menacing appearance of the creature.

 

Depending on the area where the celebrations are taking place, the creature's name and appearance can vary slightly.

 

Unlike our tradition of Santa delivering presents in the wee hours the morning of December 25th, the European Saint Nicolas visits children on December 6th, which commemorates the original real-life saint’s day.

 

According to the customs in areas ranging from Austria and Germany to Switzerland and other nearby regions, Krampus tags along with Saint Nicolas or precedes him on December 5th to deliver punishments to bad children on this day...
