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. 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 Krampus 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!
