10 Reasons to be Grateful for a Visit from Santa Claus Instead of Krampus


6. Santa’s Reindeer Have Prancing Hooves and Bells on Their Reigns

Many traditions state that Santa’s reindeer have sleigh bells on their reigns, and that their prancing hooves emit distinguished sounds on the roof when they land to visit your home.

This is a welcome melody indicating that Santa has arrived bearing gifts. Krampus, however, wears cow bells on his body, and the menacing noise combined with the racket of his heavy hooves is meant to elicit dread in the neighborhoods he visits.

This is to encourage good behavior not only from children, but from the adults who may have lost their sense of goodwill towards their fellow men. Many believe that this aspect of the folklore brings forth good intentions within the story of Krampus.

5. Santa Lives and Works in his North Pole Workshop

Not only does Santa employ his elves to help him make all of the toys for his Christmas Eve ride, but he also has a workshop that is built in the North Pole. In most images of Santa's workshop, it is made to look like a cozy cottage or a regal castle, and it is always covered with snow and bathed in warm light. It is the mythical place where every believing child would love to visit, and to where every letter to Santa is sent.

Krampus is known to live in the dark and dreary dungeons of the underworld, which is said to be filled with all of the nightmarish imaginings a child could conceive, and so to be threatened with this torture for eternity is meant to provoke a child to exhibit better behavior.
