Originally Austrian, but it's become extremely popular in Germany, Hungary, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic as well, with thousands of people attending "Krampus Day" celebrations in early December.

Which makes all the sense in the world, given that Hungary and the Czech Republic were politically united with Austria until the end of World War I in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, while the majority-Catholic parts of southern Germany were part of the Austrian sphere of cultural influence until the completion of German unification in 1870.


BVH is familiar with it through her father's side, which is German and Swisse Deutsche, with the Swisse Deutsche side being the dominant cultural influence.

A while back I read a book full of weird Xmas cards from the old days (and some were really weird -- paintings of dead animals and such) that included some Krampus cards. The oddest one may have been a depiction of Krampus as a rather attractive young woman, despite her long, demonic tongue and switches to beat bad children with. It seemed rather like a 19th century dominiatrix.
