It’s October, time for Westerner to celebrate Halloween. We, Indonesian, do not celebrate Halloween. But since October is famous for Halloween, I decided to share Indonesian ghosts every October of each year.
Westerner has Halloween as the day the spirits show up and Japanese has Bon day, for Indonesian, especially Javanese, we have Malam Jumat Kliwon. Malam means night, Jumat means Friday and Kliwon is the name of day in Javanese calendar. Malam Jumat Kliwon can be translated as the night before Jumat Kliwon. The Javanese mixed calendars, our daily calendar used by most people all over the world and their own calendar. It is said that that night is the scariest night of all, malam paling angker. The night where ghost could suddenly appears in front of you.

Since I and most Indonesian consider her as one of the scariest ghosts ever exist here, I don’t want to put her picture or image in my blog as something clearly visual. All her pictures or images can be seen by clicking that white image with kuntilanak letter. I just don’t want to answer comments to this post in the middle of the night with her picture looking straight at me. I posted this in day light, I searched her image in daylight…night time is not a good thing to do this. You might start thinking that I am afraid of her…well, the answer is simple enough…I am afraid of her!!! Read more of this post
