Sited from National Geographic
Krampus, whose name is derived from the German word krampen, meaning claw, is said to be the son of Hel in Norse mythology. The legendary beast also shares characteristics with other scary, demonic creatures in Greek mythology, including satyrs and fauns.
The legend is part of a centuries-old Christmas tradition in Germany, where Christmas celebrations begin in early December.
Krampus was created as a counterpart to kindly St. Nicholas, who rewarded children with sweets. Krampus, in contrast, would swat "wicked" children and take them away to his lair.

Feeling a bit more at ease as you smell in the distance, the lingering embers of a campfire, hoping if you move fast enough you may meet up with others. The hope of comfort comes to you as you detect toasted marshmallows, melted chocolate, and graham crackers. You now breathe easier in the warm, soul-soothing aroma of a hot apple ciders and chai tea with a dash of cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla. But just before you reach the campers, you feel a cold dread touch your spine as a Ghostly chill embraces you.
