Today, most of the Perchts or Krampusses look more like the creatures from Lord of the Rings or other fantasy stories and movies: there are trolls, dwarves and orcs. A Krampus run or Procession looks more like a fantasy convention to me.

Heutzutage schauen die meisten Perchten eher aus wie die Kreaturen aus Herr der Ringe oder anderen Fantasy Geschichten und Filmen: Es gibt Trolle, Zwerge und Orks. Ein Perchtenlauf oder Krampusumzug macht für mich mehr den Eindruck einer Fantasy Convention.

The kids that stood in front of me were not a bit afraid of the fearsome horror characters.

Die Kleinen, die vor mir gestanden haben, hatten keinerlei Angst oder Berührungsängste vor den furcherregenden Horrorgestalten.

I have no idea why the costumes or the masks of the Krampusses have changed so much. Perhaps to appeal more to youth by carving an Orcs mask instead of the Devils mask.

Ich habe keine Ahnung, warum sich die Kostüme beziehungsweise die Masken der Perchten so sehr geändert haben. Vielleicht, um die Jugend mehr anzusprechen, indem statt der Teufelsmaske nun eine Orks-Maske geschnitzt wird.

Much has changed to the Krampus or Perchten run (Krampus procession) since I was a child, which are currently happening in many places and towns in the Alpine region.

An dem Brauch des Krampus- oder Perchtenlaufes (Krampusumzug), welchen es in vielen Orten und Städten im alpenländischen Raum zur Zeit gibt, hat sich viel geändert seit ich ein Kind gewesen bin.

Many changes and restrictions were certainly necessary because of all the property damages, in which even cars were overturned, and serious injuries and also rapes that happened.
Alcohol has played a large, if not the main role as well for the spectators as also for the Krampusses.

Viele Änderungen und Restriktionen waren sicherlich notwendig, denn von Sachbeschädigungen, bei welchen sogar Autos umgekippt wurden, bis zu schweren Körperverletzungen und Vergewaltigungen ist alles vorgekommen, wobei der Alkohol, welcher sowohl bei den Zuschauern als auch bei den Perchten reichlich geflossen ist, eine große, wenn nicht sogar die Hauptrolle gespielt hat.

At least at larger events, the Krampusses are therefore separated by barriers from the many spectators and the motto is "alcohol-free and child-friendly". In the larger towns and cities, where the police are responsible for law and order, that is the case, but in some areas, of course, there are still fights and injuries every once in a while.

Zumindest bei größeren Veranstaltungen werden die Perchten daher durch Absperrgitter von den vielen Zuschauern getrennt und die Devise heißt "alkoholfrei und kinderfreundlich". In den größeren Orten und Städten, wo die Polizei für Recht und Ordnung sorgt, ist das so, aber in einigen Gegenden gibt es hin und wieder natürlich nach wie vor Schlägereien und Verletzte.

That the Krampusse are kid-friendly, you see again and again.

Dass die Krampusse kinderfreundlich sind, sieht man immer wieder.

To be honest, as beautiful ugly as some of these modern masks are made, I like the "old" masks better and if we should go to see another Krampus parade, I would like to go somewhere, where they also have the old traditional masks.

Um ehrlich zu sein, so schön hässlich manche dieser modernen Masken auch gemacht sind, mir gefallen die "alten" Perchten besser und falls wir wieder einmal einen Krampusumzug anschauen gehen, dann möchte ich gerne irgendwohin fahren, wo es auch die alten, traditionellen Masken zu sehen gibt.

Krampus, the anti Santa Claus?

Oh no, you mean that horror movie @markkujantunen 😉
Our Krampus is a very old historic figure that comes together with Nikolaus - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krampus


!BEER

Krampus
In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in several regions including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Northern Italy including South Tyrol and the Province of Trento, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated it as having pre-Christian origins.
In traditional parades and in such events as the Krampuslauf (English: Krampus run), young men dressed as Krampus participate; such events occur annually in most Alpine towns.

Thank you 🙂

But he is the anti Santa in the sense that he does the punishing whereas Santa gives the gifts.
Krampus is the bad cop and Santa is the good one.

Yes, you are completely right, of course, but when you mentioned it in your comment I thought you meant that !DERANGED movie a few years ago ;)
To us they both belong together and both have visited us at home when I was a child - we loved both 😉


!BEER

Oh, Santa goes door to door in Austria, too? Here it's just Santa. He comes at Christmas Eve early in the evening. Strangely, no kid ever questions the fact that Santa is able to visit all the kids at the same time ...

Here the Nikolaus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas) goes from door to door on December 5th or 6th and brings small presents. He tells the children what they have done wrong (their parents told him before, of course). The Krampus accompanies him (for the bad children ;).

On December 24 comes the Christkind with presents (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christkind). We don't have the Santa Claus, because it would be much to much work for him to visit the children in Austria at the same time too ;) lol

I know Krampus was never a pretty boy but, they have gone overboard on him! I prefer the old masks and isn't it a shame a few bad apples have given this fun event a bad name?

Although I have to admit, some of those costumes are quite imaginative. :)

Great shots, Johann!

!tip .20

Even though there was more violence, as far as I remember there was also more fun then. Nowadays they walk between the fences and that was quite it. There's not much interaction with the people, because they are not allowed to do more than present theirself and scare the youth a little bit 😉
I also wish the old masks would come back, and I whish there were no fences, but the rule of "no alcohol" is good 👍

Thank you so much for your kind comment and for the !tip Denise 🙂
