Grüß vom Krampus und Leshi! Happy 6th of December! Here’s Krampus and Leshi celebrating together! (Credit to GreenRat for this lovely illustration.) #Krampus

Krampus night was technically yesterday, but today still counts! Enjoy this lovely illustration of Leshi and Krampus having buckets of the good stuff to celebrate.

The creature and St. Nicholas are said to arrive on the evening of December 5 (Krampusnacht; “Krampus Night”). While St. Nicholas rewards nice children by leaving presents, Krampus beats those who are naughty with branches and sticks. In some cases, he is said to eat them or take them to hell.
