A Bavarian Tradition involving Lordi trolling people? PRICELESS.

http://www.thelocal.de/gallery/341/1/

Anyone here know of any strange holiday traditions?

Wikipedia says, and thus it is so wrote:
The word Krampus originates from the Old High German word for claw (Krampen). In the Alpine regions the Krampus is represented by an incubus in company of Santa Claus. Traditionally, young men dress up as the Krampus in the first two weeks of December, particularly in the evening of December 5, and roam the streets frightening children (and adults) with rusty chains and bells. In some rural areas the tradition also includes slight birching by the Krampus, especially of young females.

The present day Krampus costume consists of wooden masks or Larve, sheep's skin and horns. Considerable effort goes into the manufacture of the hand-crafted masks, as many younger adults in rural communities engage competitively in the Krampus events.

In Oberstdorf, in the southwestern alpine part of Bavaria, the tradition of the "Wilde Mann" (wild man) is kept alive. He is described exactly like Krampus (except the horns), dressed in fur and frightening children (and adults) with rusty chains and bells.


That's nifty.

Does TGFA have this holiday tradition?

Okay, yea, thought so. Wonder if it's any fun. Looks like fun. Guy dressed in a devil outfit running around and spooking kids and spanking young women. Sounds like a jolly good time, :wotwot:

I recall a topic with almost the same title as this being made by TGFA like, 2 or 3 years ago. I actually thought this was a thread revival for a second.

I remember him posting a bunch of pictures of people in the costumes and I can only assume that was related to Krampus. Maybe not, though.


Either way, this tradition should totally catch on in Americaland.

I was trying to get a reaction from people. I dont swing that way.

Black Peter is like the anti Santa Clause he wears blackface and if you dont leave him fried chicken and an entire watermelon he will shit in your stockings.
