As tradition in our valley, the 6th of December (from 6.30 p.m.) Saint Nicholas comes to town, accompanied by two angels, which help him to carry the presents, and the "Krampus" (devils) dreaded from all children. Afterwards, they visit the houses, but the devils remain outside, unless children are particularly urchin and disobedient.
