A Gathering of Krampuses

Thursday 8 December 2016

What is the collective noun for Krampuses? And while we're at it, what is the accurate plural form of 'Krampus'?

Anyway, that aside... For the last two years Family Green have spent New Year skiing in Alpendorf, in the Austrian Tyrol. This photograph was taken this week as the town prepared for Krampusnacht on Monday.

Running into that lot on Monday night would have been a hair-raising experience!
