Krampus Processions in Austria & Germany

Krampus

Rev. Al Ridenour of the Art of Bleeding has just returned from Austria and Germany where he attended some Krampus processions. He has posted some images of the devil-like beasts (and their entourages) on his Facebook page.

Hurrah for St. Nick’s traditional henchman! Finally got to experience Krampus firsthand — three times, in fact, twice in its most traditional form in Bad Gastein, Austria, then again in a more urban setting (Munich) where different versions of the figure from different regions made their way through the city square.
