This is Halloween


We've all seen the photos of the terrifying turnip lantern. People back in the day were scary as hell.

Strangely enough, I didn’t know about turnip lanterns before. Interesting.

This reminds me of a tradition we have here in Sweden and Finland (I think), which is to make snow lanterns during winter.

A bunch of snow balls are stacked like a cone and then there’s a candle in a lantern beneath, it’s beautiful actually:

People tend to use electronic lighting a lot more nowadays though, for obvious reasons.

Sorry, I shouldn’t bring up Jul during Halloween times.

So this is how turnips protected themselves from Irish. Potatoes weren't so lucky.

"Why are you like this, grandma?"

"All the better to terrify you with, my dear."

"Halloween is supposed to be scary," with all of the "sexy cat" costumes. I think that Halloween is just an excuse to cosplay now...

Give the turnip ginger hair and it'll resemble a passed out Irish drunk pretty well.
