So who exactly is Krampus you ask? Well, Krampus is a devil, who specifically goes after those who are especially NAUGHTY. That's right, we're not just talking "I said a dirty word" naughty, ohhhh no no no. We're talking "I slapped Momma" naughty, the type of naughty that permanently prevents you from ever seeing the "Nice" list again.
It's been said that Santa shares his naughty and Nice lists with the Krampus. And when Krampus gets a hold of that list, it's only a matter of time before the extra naughty get punished.... and usually in the most brutal ways imaginable.
Krampus takes on many forms. He can appear grey, brown or black, and usually with sharp fangs and giant, bright horns. His feet are usually like that of a goat's, but some Krampus have been spotted with furry feed, paired with thick, black claws. he has long, elf-like ears and an even longer tongue, and usually hides weapons under his fur. He slumbers in the Alps, waiting for those familiar sleigh bells to alert him to a house where the naughtiest, sassiest, rudest most disrespectful and destructive live. He sometimes will wait for Santa to visit the house, and watch in the windows. He waits to see just who has coal in their stockings, so he'll know who to go after once Santa leaves.
But the thing about Krampus is.... he doesn't always wait for Christmas Eve.
Sometimes, when you hear a rustling in the bushes, it isn't the wind....
Everyone's favorite Christmas Devil!
