Munich, Germany, December 7, 2008--Men wearing animal skins, masks, and cow bells take to the streets in an annual Christmas parade honoring the mythical creature Krampuss.

Krampuss is said to follow Saint Nicholas from house to house. St. Nick presents gifts to the good, while Krampuss punishes the idle.
