'Greetings from Krampus' lino print
The Christmas devil, Krampus was created as a counterpart to kindly St. Nicholas, who rewarded children with sweets. Krampus, in contrast, would swat "wicked" children with bundles of birch branches and take them away to his lair. Krampus cards, carrying phrases such as "Gruss Vom Krampus" (Greetings from Krampus) were extremely popular in Germany from the turn of the 20th century.
