sadly Krampus turned into a kind of scary parade. when i was young, the costumes were not so elaborate, but they used to walk around freely and beat everybody up really bad. it was way more fun.

The Krampus has alot more back-story then just (a horned mountain demon that snatches up naughty children) the Krampus was the Anti-Santa Claus actually.. Wiki him.. but still i LOVE this parade. the TRUE Spirit of Christmas. HAIL SATURN!

@Loxen, Close, but La Befana is actually after xmas, and it's a totally different deal, she's looking for the christ child because when the wisemen were on their way to see the christ child they stopped and asked her if she would like to go with them and she claimed she was too busy. Upon discovering that it really was the christ child they were going to see she felt bad, so she cleans up the rooms of children and leaves them small presents in hopes that one day she will find the christ child and make up for her choice. My family and I have celebrated this for generations, it's a wonderful little tradition, but not many people know about it or celebrate it.

krampus rocks! As I recall, Krampus gets you if you are naughty 3 x in a row. after that, he tosses you in a sack and takes you to hell where you work to death mining coal among the damned. Santa puts the coal in bad kid's stockings to warn them of their doom if their ways do not change.

Haha Christmas is so messed up.

Don't get me wrong, I love it. But I also enjoy history. Brush up on history and you find out that Christmas is based on a lot of pagan rituals. yada-yada Jesus not born Dec 25'th etc, church using date to gain converts... we all know that story (hopefully). So anyway...
Pagan rituals. right? Ok. So history also shows us that Christians didn't like competition (like Greek and roman gods when neo-paganism had its rise in Victorian days ), so they warped fertility symbols like the Greek deity Pan, (the satyr dude with the funky flute) into a visual representation of the Devil.
Long story short (because it's a tad more complicated than that, but I'm trying to be brief)... this is all sorts of funny. Devils that scare bad kids on Christmas, a holiday based on old symbolism that would have seen horned deities as nice... so crazy.
