Who is Krampus?:
Krampus has been around for as long as St. Nicholas himself. He was created in folklore to be St. Nicks half goat, half demon companion who, unlike St. Nick who would reward nice children with presents they wanted; he would punish naughty children with coal or, in some stories, swats to the rear.
