It doesn’t pay to be naughty!

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - DESTINATIONS -

Kram­pus is a dark and scary char­ac­ter, half goat, half de­mon, found in Aus­tria. He stomps through the streets re­mind­ing every­one that the op­po­site force of good­ness at Christ­mas is dark and ter­ri­fy­ing, as he trys to find naughty chil­dren he can cart away to be eaten. The Kram­pus Pa­rade in Lienz ev­ery Christ­mas de­picts the pa­gan rit­ual of scar­ing away the ghosts of win­ter to the sound of cow­bells.
