What is Krampusnacht? Krampusnacht is a holiday that feels a lot more like Halloween than Christmas. On Krampusnacht, December 5th, men dressed as Krampus drink a bunch of alcohol, run through the streets, and frighten children. Often, they chase delinquent children around and hit them with sticks. The Krampus costume is traditionally made up of a hand-carved wooden mask and a suit made from sheep or goat skin. Cowbells are worn around the wearers hips. Costumes can be pretty pricey in Europe, and now theyre usually made with less expensive materials, like faux fur and face paint. (historythings)
