Greetings from Krampus 2 by chaosqueen122 Greetings from Krampus 2 by chaosqueen122
A bit late since it's allready the 6th december :XD:

On 5th of December it's Krampus day in Austria. But since last year I drew a more Krampus like figure this year it's more Perchten like.
He is some kind of Bogeyman, on 6th of December he accompanies saint Nicolas and takes away the bad children.
But often saint Nicolas helps the children and they just get a good scare to be nice for next year (at least that what happen in my childhood ;) )
But on 5th he is let loose and does what he likes, scare children.
There are also the Perchten but somebody told me theay are a bit different and since I don't live in the higher regions like the alps we had just this guy (I honestly have no mountains near my village just a big lake) but our church is dedicated to Saint Nicolas.

So I hope you were all nice ;)

Cool!:D So is he something like Knecht Rupert?

chaosqueen122 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think yes but meanier version of him?
Since Knecht Rupert is German and I think the Krampus is
Austrian...but I'm not sure since I noticed in other parts
of Austira he is called different like Klaubauf but it's kind off
the same :)

That sound interresting. Ah so maybe like our gift bringer?
It's called the Christkind it's often a little angel but I think it is used
to be baby Jesus...in some ways :XD:
What do you believe? Or what did you belive if so :XD:

yes, in the north near to belgium and in north east in alsace/lorraine, near Germany. So, in areas that were sometimes colonized by other countries. (I really want to go in strasbourg during christmas one day!!) Saint Nicholaus isn't very well know otherwise, sadly.... :)

hahah nein nicht wirklich ....außerdem haben sie es bei uns ja entschärft.
Früher durften sie noch mit der Peitsche auf Kinder Hintern eindreschen :XD:
jetzt müssen sie artig in einer Reihe stehen und dürfen nix machen..außer bei speziellen
Umzügen.

recht okay.
