KRAMPUSNACHT 

 

 


 

Where: Tyrol – Austria
When: 5 December (every year)

 

The mythical Krampus is horned half-goat, half-demon who is meant to whip children into being nice at Christmas – and he’s more than a little terrifying to the uninitiated.

Bearing horns, long dark hair (fur), and fangs, the anti-St. Nicholas comes with a chain and bells that he lashes about, along with a bundle of birch sticks meant to swat naughty children. He then hauls the bad kids down to the underworld. Or so the story goes. In the Austrian Alps, a parade of Krampus take over the streets, their chains rattling as they walk through the snow-covered streets, carrying torches of fire and whipping unsuspecting passersby. Go prepared. I didn’t sleep so well after attending this festival!

Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world's nations, is celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and forms an integral part of the holiday season centred around it.

And then add popular dances, an ice rink, Christmas markets, a Ferris wheel, a torchlight procession on the 30th, a proper music festival on the 31st is observed.
