The Darker Side of the Season
The Story of Krampus
Krampus is still a part of Austrian and German Holiday traditions and is celebrated with mask making, Parades knowns as “Krampuslaufs” and merry making of a more terrifying nature.
December 5 is known as “Krampusnacht”. The night when Krampus would seek out those children on his naughty list. We are inviting everyone to show up in their Krampus best on December 1-2 … Or to see if their names are on his list! Please use #KrampusAP when sharing it on social media!
Asbury Park will be open for business none the less, with fun events for people of all ages and our holiday shopping ready to go!
