Meet St. Nick's Helper, Krampus!

Jim Thorpe, Pa -- Jim Thorpe, Pa hosted its inaugural Black Forest Krampusnacht celebrating St. Nicholas' helper, Krampus.

Krampus is a goat-like creature and a part of the German Christmas Tradition.


It is said, St. Nick rewards children with gifts and his helper Krampus punishes the naughty children.

Krampus enthusiasts celebrated the tradition with local crafters, a beer garden, and many dressed up as their own interpretation of Krampus.
