A participant tries on his Krampus creature mask as other participants put on their costumes prior to Krampus night in Neustift im Stubaital, Austria. More than 200 Krampuses participated in the first annual Neustift event. Krampus, in Tyrol also called Tuifl, is a demon-like creature represented by a fearsome, hand-carved wooden mask with animal horns, a suit made from sheep or goat skin and large cow bells attached to the waist that the wearer rings by running or shaking his hips up and down. Krampus has been a part of Central European alpine folklore going back at least a millennium, and since the 17th-century Krampus traditionally accompanies St. Nicholas and angels on the evening of Dec. 5 to visit households to reward children who have been good while reprimanding those who have not.
