In the Balkans (beginning originally with folklore from Romani peeps) it was believed that Pumpkins could turn into VAMPIRES! The belief in vampire fruit is similar to the belief that any inanimate object left outside during the night of a full moon would become a vampire.
One of the main indications that a pumpkin or melon is about to undergo a vampiric transformation (or has just completed one) is said to be the appearance of a drop of blood on its skin. It could also occur if ground fruit have been kept for more than ten days. The gathered pumpkins would stir all by themselves & make a sound like ‘brrrl, brrrl, brrrl!’ then begin to shake. These pumpkins and melons go round the houses, stables, and rooms at night, all by themselves, and do harm to people. But it is thought that they cannot do great damage to folk, so people are not very afraid of this kind of vampire.
I couldn’t shake the thoughts of pumpkins rolling around in the night, upon reading that people were not really scared of them I pictured them as being extremely derpy, thus this magical candle was born! Its alleged to aid in protection (from oogies, crappy people, & spirits (including vampire pumpkins and squash). Inside each orange pumpkin candle, a little dead white vampire pumpkin lays in wait to attack! I imagine they are like daddy long legs and have little fangs that are completely useless.
