If you are a child in southern Germany or Austria, when St.
Nicholas rides through your village on the evening of December 5, he does not arrive alone. Krampus is his scary companion.
The Krampus, a terrifying horned figure wearing chains and carrying switches, runs behind him. It’s his job to scare children into being “good.”
The Soffieria De Carlini Krampus ornament depicts a classic German orAustrian Krampus clad in black with a scary red face, horns and elongated tongue. And, don’t miss that tail. He is truly a frightening character … as bad as St. Nicholas is saintly!
Soffieria De Carlini has been a family-operated glass blowning working shop since 1947. Located near Milan, the De Carlinis are the last workshop in Italy still producing these whimsical free blown holiday ornaments.
Still have room on the tree? We can help! Celebrate365.com still has a large stock of European artisan-crafted ornaments. Why not give yourself a gift?
In addition, the shop will be closing soon for the winter. We will be leaving behind the Midwest’s winter cold in favor of sun and sand in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. We will be away for 7 weeks and the store will be closed during that time.
Follow this blog as well as the Celebrate365 Facebook page to see what life is like for us in the Yucatan area. I taught high school Spanish for 26 years but I never envisioned a retirement perk quite like this!

Thirty-five Oscar nominations and eight actual Academy Awards along with 1100 movies in her five-decade career … it’s not surprising that Edith Head became synonymous with Hollywood’s “Golden Age” of movies. The iconic costume designer “dressed” dozens of actresses such as Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. Among Hollywood costume designers, Edith Head remains the queen!
