Where does this tradition come from and what are „Perchten“ exactly? „Perchten“ originate from Alpine areas and are sorts of devils who mainly appear in December and January. They are similiar to Krampus, who often appears together with St. Nicholas. One of the most important utensil of a Perchte is its huge bell, with which they try to scare away winter according to the myths.
