Another Krampusse Update

Here's another update to my earlier posts on the krampusse traditions in Germany, Austria and the Low Countries.

Krampusse Masks in So. Germany

A combination picture shows traditional wooden 'Krampuss' masks seen during a parade of about 100 people in traditional attire known as 'Krampusse' in Munich, December 12, 2004. Krampusse consist of animal skins and masks attached to large cow-bells used to make loud and frightening noises, and are worn by young single men. They follow Saint Nicholas from house to house in December each year to bring luck to the good and punish the idle. REUTERS/Alexandra Winkler
