Krampus is coming!

I’m in Innsbruck, Austria for a quick pitstop to change sleds.  My visit here coincides with the Krampus festival.  It’s when Saint Nicolaus comes to town and if the kids have been good, they receive a bag of sweets.  If they’ve been a right pain all year, instead of Saint Nicolaus visiting them Krampus comes after them, which is a big hairy monster who attacks the children by hitting them with a fistful of sticks!  It’s customary for teenagers to dress up as krampus at night and attack people at random.  Time to keep my eyes peeled and have my running legs on I think!

I must of been good this year as I got to meet Saint Nicolaus 🙂
