St. Michael, Lungau, AustriaKrampuslauf
Krampuslauf is held the first Advent weekend in December. St Nikolaus is accompanied by scary Krampus figures, Buttenmandl, and angels. The Krampus run through the town, whipping innocent bystanders. Krampus groups come from the surrounding area and may number from 400-500. The angels and St Nikolaus give sweet treats to the children.
