Krampus Themed Haunted Attraction Coming to Nashville in December
This haunted attraction is the combination of Christmas and Halloween that we've been waiting for!
Sometimes it's hard to get into the holiday spirit, especially right after Halloween. People who can go directly from Halloween to Christmas are a special kind of people that I just don't understand. Here it is, middle of November and I still am hanging onto spooky season just a little longer (seriously my Halloween decorations are still up in my house). Then I saw this Krampus themed haunted house, and it's the perfect combination of Halloween and Christmas I've been needing.
Krampus: A Haunted Christmas will be coming to Nashville for 3 dates. December 7th, 13th & 14th. Tickets are on sale now, you can find them here. Krampus: A Haunted Christmas is described as a haunted house with a warm Christmas feeling. You'll be seeing scenes that take you back to sweet holiday memories, but they'll have a terrifying twist, and the demon Krampus will be waiting!
According to Smithsonian Mag, Krampus is the anti-Santa. The yin to Santa's yang if you will. St. Nick may punish bad kids by giving them coal, but Krampus? Krampus does much worse to bad kids.
Krampus himself historically comes around the night of December 5, tagging along with St. Nicholas. He visits houses all night with his saintly pal. While St. Nick is on hand to put candy in the shoes of good kids and birch twigs in the shoes of the bad, Krampus’ particular specialty is punishing naughty children. Legend has it that throughout the Christmas season, misbehaved kids are beaten with birch branches or can disappear, stuffed into Krampus’ sack and hauled off to his lair to be tortured or eaten.
The story of Krampus actually originates in Europe, but he's finally gotten so popular that his story has spread across the pond to the U.S.
