Sunday Photo – Krampus & St Nicholas, Salzburg

In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved.

This contrasts with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.
