Krampus Gras

NOLA Fetes Demon Who Visits the Night Before St. Nick



Krampus is the stuff of nightmares. His name is derived from the German word Krampen, or to claw, and the night before Nikolaustag (Saint Nick’s Day) the beast creeps into town and beats the children into being nice. Of course, New Orleans will be feting this anti-hero with a mini-fest on December 5.


Today In NOLA 12.5.15


Happy Saturday! Today in New Orleans, see the Saint Nick Secondline at the St. Nicholas Day Fair, or head to Algiers for their riverfront holiday celebration. House of Blues is getting into the holiday spirit with the 12 Brews of Christmas, and it’s the 3rd Annual Krampus Gras at the Voodoo Lounge. Back in 1981, The Rolling Stones played a concert at the Superdome. Now, more of what’s in store for this Saturday.
