Happy Krampusnacht! December 5th traditionally is celebrated in certain regions as Krampusnacht or Krampus Night ( you can read more on the history and traditions of Krampusnacht here and here!). On this night it is said that Krampus visits naughty boys and girls, whipping them and putting them into a sack to cart them off to Hell as a punishment. In countries like Austria, they have Krampus laufs, kinda like parades, where people dressed as Krampus and their demonic helpers stalk the crowd and punish those that they deem naughty. There are also events across the US that now also celebrate this holiday, including several events here in SoCal (check out last year's post on where to find these HERE!).
If you really like all things Krampus, and maybe can't make it to one of these events, the following Krampus items below might be able to fill the void! If you happen to be looking for a gift for a fellow Krampus lover (or yourself), consider picking up one (or more) of these deliciously dark Krampus-inspired products:
Krampus the Christmas Devil Soap
Happy Krampusnacht and stay spooky!
