Krampus is the original Grinch. An Alpine legend, this black-furred, horned devil is fabled to accompany Santa Claus Christmas Night.

While Santa Claus rewards well behaved children with toys, Krampus’s job is to beat bad boys and girls with a quiver of switches, and then throw them on a basket he carries on his back so he can drag them to Hell.

Today, men dress in Krampus costumes and makeup to scare and threaten children with floggings.
