On the 5 of December falls Krampusnacht, the night when Krampus is said to travel across the land and punish naughty children. This figure has roots in Germanic Paganism, although a lot of meaning surrounding the myth has been lost to time. The Church tried to ban the celebration but it continued in hard-to-access places,Fortsätt läsa ”Tremble and fear, Krampusnacht is here!”
We eventually got onto another connecting flight, this time to Vienna. It was also late and the only reason we’ll be able to get onto the connecting flight to Prague is because it too was late. Hopefully we’ll make it to our destination before tomorrow. It’s been a pretty stressful trip.
