St. Nicholas and Krampus
To separate the good and the bad isn´t always easy. The same counts for the merciful St. Nicholas and the devilish Krampus. While St Nicholas traditionally treats the well-behaved kids with sweats and little presents, the fearsome Krampus frightens all children who were naughty.That means Krampus is the eerie counterpart to Knecht Ruprecht. Except that his appearance is way more terrifying.
