Krampus W.I.P

Started it last year, and now I'm trying to get it done in time for the 5th of December a.k.a the day before my Berth Day.

What is a Krampus?

Krampus is a mythical creature recognized in Alpine countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies St. Nicholas during the Christmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children.

In the Alpine regions, Krampus is represented by a demon-like creature. Traditionally, young men dress up as the Krampus in Austria and southern Bavaria, especially the market town Berchtesgaden, during the first two weeks of December, particularly on the evening of 5 December, and roam the streets frightening children with rusty chains and bells.

In the aftermath of the Austrian Civil War the Krampus tradition was a target of the Dollfuss regime.
