Revellers dressed as the Krampus creature parade through the village center during an annual 'Krampus run' on December 3 in Fieberbrunn, Austria. Krampus associations from across Austria and other parts of Central Europe have been taking to the streets in recent weeks in an annual tradition that has been growing in popularity in recent decades. Krampus, in Tyrol also called Tuifl, is a demon-like creature represented by a fearsome, hand-carved wooden mask with animal horns, a suit made from sheep or goat skin and large cow bells attached to the waist that the wearer rings by running or shaking his hips up and down.
