Gruß vom Krampus!! It’s Krampusnacht!

krampusI’m a big fan of the resurgence of The Krampus, the creature that is one of the many companions to St Nicholas.  He punishes the naughty children by clanging his chains and threatening to carry them away in his basket and beat them with switches.  Merry Christmas to you, kids!

I made this Krampus mini quilt some time ago, and he’s not too scary looking.  I even used it as the cover for my Krampuskarten, or Krampus cards, as my holiday cards last year!  Tonight is Krampusnacht, which is the night before the feast of St Nicholas (on Dec 6th).  Soooo…  Gruß vom Krampus!! (Greetings from the Krampus!)
