As we head into the winter holiday season here’s a friendly reminder that not all Krampuses are immediately interested in seeking out and punishing naughty children. Some of them are simply out on a date.
It’s easy to presume that ferocious creatures like the Krampus and Perchta wouldn’t have time for romance, what with the seemingly endless supply of naughty children out there in need of tormenting and devouring.
But this awesome photo, taken by Redditor Kos_Kun during their morning commute on the subway in Vienna, Austria, appears to prove otherwise. Even folkloric beasts enjoy a tender nuzzle now and then.
