Long before the birth of Jesus Christ it was traditional to dress up during the winter solstice season, using masks and drama to play old man winter and the horned goat-man. St. Nicholas Day is held on December 6th, traditionally. On the eve of this holiday, Krampusnacht (Night of Krampus), is held in Austria, Switzerland, Croatia, Germany and other areas throughout Europe celebrating an ancient ritual known as the Krampus Run. During this winter festivity, sin-loving men and women bear torches and dress up as witches, wild beasts and devils, roaming the streets, fueled by alcohol These demons serve to spook the public at large.
