A man in a traditional Bavarian dress known as 'Buttenmandl' is pictured before a parade through Bischofswiesen near Bertesgaden November 29, 2009. Buttenmandl and Krampusse are unmarried men, dressed in straw and skins with animal masks or skins over their heads and large cow-bells tied around their necks with which they make loud and horrible noises. They follow Saint Nicholas from house to house every year to bring luck to the good and punish the idle. (Xinhua/Reuters Photo)
