Unusual holiday traditions?

dv8 dv8
I attended a Krampus-themed party this week.



Krampus is Santa Claus' counterpart and is responsible for punishing naughty children. He's relatively obscure in the United States. Other characters Americans rarely see are Black Peter, the whipping father, Belsnickel, and Knight Rupert. Is anyone familiar with these characters or any others? Much of the American depiction of Christmas stems from popular song and Coca-Cola ad campaigns.

Yep, I'm familiar with the traditions. It amuses me that most people in America aren't. Supernatural actually had its main characters take on the "Anti-clause," as they irreverently referred to him, in its Christmas special, "A Very Supernatural Christmas."

We have a Krampus collection that comes out every year.

My family is known to watch terrible disaster movies (Like Epidemic, War of The Worlds, etc.) on Christmas.
