According to some unofficial sources, however, it seems that some immigrants on the road provoked the Krampus trying to remove the mask from some of them. The masked devils rushed with an unusual aggressiveness on the crowd , striking haphazardly with kicks and punches and, as can be seen from the video, often raging even in two on a single individual."
Goat-horned half-demons with scraggy coats of fur, lolling tongues and threatening bundles of birch branches are no one’s idea of a welcome guest on a winter’s night.
In Austria, however, the figure of the Krampus has been part of pre-Christmas folklore for centuries, with men in costumes roaming the streets to scare children and grownups from the end of November to the middle of December.
Yet in recent years the Krampus has developed to become an altogether very modern bogeyman, with a rising number of complaints about the demons acting in a drunkenly and disorderly fashion once they have donned their fearsome masks.
