5 December / Krampus…

via:Confessions of Crafty Witches

December 5th, Saint Nicholas Eve is known as Krampus Nacht (night) in some parts of Austria and the Tyrol. The Krampus is a sort of demon who accompanies St. Nikolaus on the eve of December 6. St Nick visits every home during the night to leave small gifts in the shoes of children who have been good during the past year. Those who have misbehaved, however, may get punished by his helper, Krampus. He might take back the gifts that St. Nicholas left for the children, and leave them a lump of coal instead. He might “give them a birching” with the switch he carries with him. Really bad children might even get carried off in his sack and taken along, or even put into an ink-well by St. Nick himself! (Not sure of the origin of the ink well)

The history of the Krampus figure stretches back to pre-Christian Germanic traditions.He is sometimes said to be the son of Hel, from Norse mythology. He also shares characteristics with the satyrs of Greek mythology. The early Catholic Church discouraged celebrations based around the wild goat-like creatures, and during the Inquisition efforts were made to stamp them out.

But Krampus figures persisted, and by the 17th century Krampus had been incorporated into Christian winter celebrations by pairing them with St. Nicholas

Krampus is actually a pagan fertility god who has a a long tail, fur, rattling chains, a birch branch, and a big black bag. He was worshipped by the pagans of the Tyrol and turned into Santa’s cohort when the area was Christianized. Children and adults go to the village square and may throw snowballs at him to scare him off during a parade in his honor. Some people dress up as Krampus and a special cookie is even baked for the day and bread is baked in the shape of Saint Nicholas or Krampus.

On Saint Nicholas Eve children place their shoes on the window sill or outside their bedroom door to be filled with fruits, nuts, and sweets.

St. Nikolaus may also be followed by the hideous Krampus, covered with bells and dragging chains in a parade the next day.
