Krampus, the Christmas Devil

“Satan? I am not Satan!” the beast growled. “I am Krampus, the Lord of Yule. Now if you do not get out of my way I will tear out your heart and eat it!” – Brom, Krampus: The Yule Lord

Every year, children wait for good old Santa Claus to visit them. Good kids who have been nice all year get gifts and treats from Father Christmas. But in many European countries, kids get a lot worse than just a mere lump of coal. They get a visit from the demonic half-man, half-goat monster with large horns. Krampus is the negative counterpart of Saint Nicholas who steals away bad children and takes them to his lair to torture and eat them. This folklore is widely popular in Austria, as well as Croatia, Slovenia, and northern Italy.
