Sometimes it´s probably better to just switch off.
Sometimes it´s probably better not to keep oneself busy with fictional or real problems.
Sometimes it´s probably better not to think constantly about things oner can't influence anyway.
Sometimes you have to relax. Or at least try to.
Because if you don't you will get crazy...



The word Krampus originates from the Old High German word for claw (Krampen). In the Alpine regions, the Krampus is a mythical horned figure represented as accompanying Saint Nicholas. Krampus acts as an anti–Saint Nicholas, who, instead of giving gifts to good children, gives warnings and punishments to the bad children. Traditionally, young men dress up as the Krampus in the first two weeks of December, particularly in the evening of December 5, and roam the streets frightening children and women with rusty chains and whips and bells. This figure is believed to originate from stories of house spirits such as kobolds or elves. Nowadays one can find "Krampusläufe" also in towns and rural areas.
