Hallowe'en Jack-O-Lanterns In Croatia






*The below post is a quick copy/paste from a few years ago, considering it's going to be Hallowe'en soon.....


This one was fun to do. Just a few random but interesting photos of peoples Jacko-O-Lanterns in Croatia that were sent to a newspaper, a common thing around this time of year. There are also lots more pumpkin photos to check out at the various Croatian news portals. I was going to touch upon some of the centuries old traditions, beliefs and customs related to this time of year in Croatia, including graves, dead people, spirits, ghosts, costumes, bonfires and mythology etc. I don't have the time though. The top one isn't really all that great, sort of a wimpy looking Jacko-O-Lantern that just screams out Charlie Brown to me for some reason, but it looks like the little guy tried really hard to make it look scary at least, which is the main thing and reason for the season. My Hallowe'en good deed........

(also, related to my last post about recent Mlinar caffee/bakery openings outside of Croatia, if you happen to live near one, don't forget they also have Hallowe'en specials)

 I decided to spice this one up by adding throughout the post footage of some of the most frightening, spooky and scariest scenes and sounds ever put on film....(Just too many to choose from over the years though, there's just too many Top 100 Lists
