Don't go out alone at night, otherwise EL CUCUY IS GONNA GET YOU!!!!

A folk tale popular in South Texas, "El Cucuy" is a boogieman who preys on children and on those who go out at night. A story usually told in the context of trying to get kids to sleep on time and a way to employ scare tactics for children to behave, "El Cucuy" is a fun folktale that spans cultural boundaries and generations alike.

Our "El Cucuy" 8" glass candle is a new addition to the webshop for the Halloween season, and we honor the tales that scared us growing up on the Gulf of Mexico. Hand-screenprinted and dressed with love, our candle is sure to scare the little ones while making your grandparents chuckle.

Backside of candle reads:

"Light candle upon nightfall to protect home and loved ones from El Cucuy. El Cucuy preys on small children who misbehave and who refuse to go to sleep on time. Those who stay out late are also susceptible to to El Cucuy's tricks.

Encienda la vela al caer la noche para protegar a su casa ya los seres queridos de El Cucuy. El Cucuy se alimenta de ninos pequenos que se portan mal y que se niegan a ir a dormir a tiempo. Los que se quedan fuera por la noche son tambien susceptible a los trucos de El Cucuy."

Dressed with yellow wax and glitter. AND A REAL FLY. No scent.
