MnRTV Live Show- Wed Dec 14,2016 @ 730 est - Krampus - Horrible Christmas Devil!

This Wed night on MnRTV Live show we investigate Krampus the Horrible Christmas Devil! What and who is Krampus? Krampus isn't exactly the stuff of dreams: Bearing horns, dark hair, and fangs, the anti-St. Nicholas comes with a chain and bells that he lashes about, along with a bundle of birch sticks meant to swat naughty children. He then hauls the bad kids down to the underworld. Krampus, whose name is derived from the German word krampen, meaning claw, is said to be the son of Hel in Norse mythology. The legendary beast also shares characteristics with other scary, demonic creatures in Greek mythology, including satyrs and fauns. The legend is part of a centuries-old Christmas tradition in Germany, where Christmas celebrations begin in early December. Krampus was created as a counterpart to kindly St. Nicholas, who rewarded children with sweets. Krampus, in contrast, would swat "wicked" children and take them away to his lair! A more modern take on the tradition in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic involves drunken men dressed as devils, who take over the streets for a Krampuslauf—a Krampus Run of sorts, when people are chased through the streets by the "devils." Why scare children with a demonic, pagan monster? Maybe it's a way for humans to get in touch with their animalistic side. why do people dress like this horrible ugly creature demonic in nature and why was there a movie made about him?
