Spirit Halloween is ready to amp up your interest in this ancient creature of legend with our 2020 introduction of Krampus décor and accessories. You heard that correctly! Spirit Halloween is showcasing a new array of officially licensed Krampus accessories and décor, including products to create the most iconic Krampus costume appearance, beginning July 25, 2020. Questions like “Who/what is Krampus?”, What does Krampus look like?”, “What does Krampus do?”, and “Where is Krampus from?” will be answered through this film-inspired collection and explanation of its origins.
The current concept of Krampus derives from a central European legend which describes a half-goat, half-demonic figure that preys upon misbehaved and non-believing children during the Christmas holiday season. Originally, the figure of Krampus is said to date back to German roots, as the creature’s name, “Krampus,” comes from the German word Krampen, meaning “claw.” Even today, Krampus’s large metal claw-like accomplice remains well known. Though originally associated with Pagan rituals for the winter solstice, the spread of Christianity and the timeline of the Pagan festivities increased Krampus’s relation to modern-day Christmastime.
The evening of December 5 marks Krampusnach, meaning“Krampus Night,” when St. Nicholas rewards children with gifts, while Krampus punishes naughty ones in various ways: hitting them with sticks, eating them, or bringing them to hell. Conversely, December 6 marks St. Nicholas’s Day, in which children open their presents or recover from their injuries. In addition to the rise in practice of Christianity, this movement also invited heightened commercialization, adding to the prominence of Krampus.
Spirit Halloween has expanded upon the legend of Krampus with this officially licensed collection of Krampus-inspired accessories and décor based on the film with the creature’s name, Krampus (2015). This action-packed and frightening flick examining Krampus’s legend exhibits a prime example of Krampus wreaking havoc on nonbelievers of Christmas. A family undergoing dysfunction betrays the holiday spirit, practically inviting Krampus to come and play his monstrous game. The protagonist of the film, the little boy Max, played by Emjay Anthony, is mocked by his family for believing in Christmas, causing him to rip his letter to Santa Claus in pieces, literally turning his back on Christmas. Krampus enters Max’s family home and attacks to punish them for their disbelief: the only way for the family to survive is to band together in solidarity and belief.
