Easily scared these Luxembourg girls!
When: Usually the last Saturday in October every year.
Where: Munshausen, Luxembourg.
Trauliicht gët gebrannt is a longstanding tradition in Munshausen, Luxembourg that involves all the boys in the town frightening all the girls with hollowed out turnip lanterns.
The tradition is born out of guarding the village cattle. The boys herd the cattle back from their fields as night falls terrorising the female sex with their illuminated turnips as they go.
