21 Vintage Postcards Of Krampus That Will Haunt Your Dreams

Krampus sees you when you're sleeping, he knows if you've been bad or good -- and he is coming for YOU!

Krampus is a horrifying demon creature (straight out of Guillermo del Toro's nightmares) that originates from Europe's Alpine region. Each December 6, he accompanies St. Nicholas – the traditional gift-giver of Western Europe – in delivering presents to well-behaved children. But, unlike St. Nicholas, he punishes naughty children – usually by beating them and carrying them away in his sack back to his lair.
