From Wikipedia.org:
Krampus is a mythical creature recognized in alpine  countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies St. Nicholas during  the Christmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to  St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children.
In the Alpine regions, Krampus is represented by a demon-like  creature. Traditionally, young men dress up as the Krampus in Austria  and southern Bavaria, especially the market town Berchtesgaden, during  the first two weeks of December, particularly on the evening of 5  December, and roam the streets frightening children with rusty chains  and bells.
