8. Santa is Accompanied by Elves and Reindeer
Santa is known to work with happy elves who make toys for all of the good children, and on Christmas Eve Santa traverses the world in a sleigh pulled by a pack of reindeer with memorable names.
However, Krampus is accompanied by demonic creatures and witches who feed on the life spirit of children and rejoice when Krampus places the naughty juveniles in a sack that he carries back to the underworld.
Many areas of the world host Krampus parades where men and women dress up as the Christmas demon and race through the city streets dancing, shaking chains, and bearing whips, all to the delight of onlookers.
