Valentine's Day Krampus 2010

I thought it would be sweet and nicey-nice to post a somewhat romantic old-timey Krampus postcard from my collection. you know, in honor of St. Valentine's Day as well as these days of wintery devotion. Nice for us. Not so nice for the young lady or her shins being seized. Now that I'm looking at this postcard I'm rethinking my entire motivation in this being neither sweet nor nice.
Ah, Krampus. You've tricked me once again. Jerk.

(If there is anyone who feels compelled to translate the text in this post, please do so in the comments section or send me an email and I'll update the post. Thank you.)


  1. Very literally and very roughly, the text translates something like this (thanks for the help Mom!):

    With your skis be not so wild
    Give yourself no shame
    Because it isn't a good picture
    The fallen person

    It doesn't really make any sense, I don't think, in the context with Krampus. Perhaps in the day it had more meaning?
    Thanks for sharing a great postcard! Do you own it?

    1. Yes, I do own this postcard. Thanks for the help!
