Krampuslauf: A Twisted Twist on Cheery Krampus Parade

According to folklore, Krampus shows up  the night before December 6, known as Krampusnacht, or Krampus Night. Today the tradition live on in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic involves folks dressed as devils, who take over the streets for a Krampuslauf—a Krampus Run of sorts, when people are chased through the streets by these “devils.”
