Honestly, the themes for today and the upcoming week are not my cup of tea. They are so American, it's painful.
Yes, my American friends, Halloween is "celebrated" on the Old Continent, but it is no more than a very commercial version of what used to be part of our ancient, European culture, a culture which had entirely disappeared by the time Europeans started moving to the newly discovered continent. One needs a microscope to find the remains of Samhain in modern Halloween. Paganism has been replaced by plagiarism.
No doubt that's in a way true for the nowadays Busójárás too, but this tradition in Mohács (Hungary) surely has stayed closer to its origins than Halloween. And it is not commercially spread over the entire world.
Which doesn't mean you can't buy one of the traditional masks (there's still one guy in town who makes them) to take it home. And that's exactly what I did when visiting the city last August ...
