Czech fascination with devils, witches and malevolent spirits

Last Saturday night we let the children watch a newish Czech fairytale on television. The eight o’clock start time ran well past their bedtime, even for the weekend. Unlike most movie nights, when we’re watching a favorite DVD, no one, except Radek, knew the plot line. Apart from watching a few of the most famous Czech fairytales over the holidays and catching an occasional early morning weekend cartoon, most of our family’s television-watching centers around English language DVDs we’ve brought back or been given by family in the US. The children do watch Czech movies on weekends at babička‘s, however.
