In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as 'half-goat, half-demon' who, during the Christmas season, punishes naughty children. He's pretty much the opposite of Saint Nicholas. On Krampusnacht (the night before St. Nicholas Day) Krampus swats wicked children and stuffs them into a sack, and takes them to his lair. After that, who knows? Maybe you'll be eaten as a snack, drowned in a river, or dropped off at hell. You can even participate in Krampusnacht in Clintonville (north of downtown Columbus) each December, if you dare.
Krampusnacht the yarn is a blood red, a true black, and a vintage gold.
