It doesn’t pay to be naughty!
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.
