Krampus is a sort of anti-Saint Nicholas, who instead of rewarding good children with gifts and sweets, punishes the naughty children on Christmas. He is traditionally depicted as an evil, horned demonic figure, manacled with rusty chains and carrying a switch made from dried twigs to administer beatings. In many alpine countries young men dress up as Krampus to scare little children.
