Does Slovenia have Halloween?

Slovenia traditionally celebrates the All Hallow's Day (Halloween is actually All Hallow's eve) in a different way then for instance USA. The origins of the holiday are the same, since this is belived to be a day when the dead visit the earth, but in Slovenia, as in many other countries, this is the time to remember the departed and show respects to them. November 1st is a bank holiday, called "The day of rememberance of the dead" and Slovenians traditionaly visit cemetaries on that day to pay their respects. It must be stated that even before capitalism came to Eatern Europe, this holiday was already becomming very commercial and florists and candle makers make huge profit out of it. In recent years, however, the commercialized American version of Halloween is celebrated more and more often to much dismay of ethnologists. In Slovenia Halloween is called The nigt of the Withces (Noč Čarovnic). The origins of this name are unclear, but possibly it came to the country only trough the cinema. When the first Halloween movie came out, Slovene audience woudl of course not understand it's meaning if it was transleted directly into "All Hallows Eve", so a name "Night of the Witches" was used. This has some loose base in the ethnology, since Central Europe had it's own "Night of the Witches", but that was on Walburga's eve, the night before May 1st. The strange change of it's name had some effect on the way Halloween is celebrated in Slovenia, since it's more about Witches then being a day for a mascerade. Some tourist destination for instance offer "Wizards and Withces" balls. Slovenia also traditionally has a holiday that is very simmilar to American Halloween. It is Pust (the Carneval) celebrated just bofere the lent period (40 days before Ester - that is in the end of February or begiining of March, depending on the moon cycles). It begins on Saturday and ends on Ahs Wednesday. It is a time of mascerades and trick'or'treating and several different traditional events take place. For instance the demonic "Kurent" processions in Ptuj, or the processions of traditional masks "Laufarji" in Cerkno. It is a time when authority over the country is given to the Carnival prince (called Pust) and people are allowed to be wild and disrespectful to the authority. The celebrations end with Pust being put to trial (on Tuesday) as a culprit for everything that is going wrong in the country. Being found guilty he is traditionally executed (a straw doll is burned for instance) and buried with much protocol on Ash Wednesday.

Does Slovenia vote?

Yes, Slovenia votes every year at the Eurovision Song Contest, usually awarding Croatia 12 points :-) But seriously, Slovenian citizens vote at the elections. Most important are the elections for the National Parliament (every four years, recently in September 2008), election for the mayors and local council members (also every four years, to be held in the autumn 2010) and elections for the national President (every 5 years). The president does not have an executive power, so these elections are not as important as e.g. presidential election in the U.S.: parliamentary elections are much more important since the Parliament is electing the Government, headed by the Prime Minister who has the real power. While national Parliament consists solely from the MPs elected from the lists submitted by major parties (+ 2 members from Italian and Hungarian national minorities), municipal councils usually consist of many (even majority) of members who are elected through alternative lists, not submitted by a registered party but by a "group of citizens". Due to rather low threshold for conducting a national referendum, they are also rather common, at least every few years. The results can be obligatory for the Parliament, when the voters are deciding whether to accept or reject certain legal act (it can be held before or after voting in the Parliament) or optional in case when the voters are only consulted about certain issue. The referendum issues can range from rather "normal" issues (e.g. What electoral formula would you prefer: a proportional representation or plurality), to controversial ("Are healthy women eligible to get pregnant using bio-medical techniques?") to complex issues far exceeding average voter capacity ("Shall Republic of Slovenia finance construction of the 3rd block of a thermal power plant Trbovlje?").

How did Slovenia get its name?

The name for the nation, Slovenes, was mentioned by a protestant priest and author Primoz Trubar in 1550s, describing the nation that lived in several different lands of the Austrian Empire. The origin of this name is not exactly known to me, but two possible origins spring to mind. The word is deffinetly linked to the word Slavs (Or Slovani in Slovene language), which represent a group of nations. One possibility is that the nation was named thus because it was the Westernmost nation of the southern Slavic nations, and the neighbours just called them "Slavs". This idea might explain why the Slovaks in the nord have been named in the same way. (Slovaks and Slovenes in their respective native tongues both call themselves exactly the same - Slovenci) . The other possible explanation is that the word "Slovo" in ancient Slavic meant "Word". The word Slav, and possibly Slovenian come out of this. People used this name for those people who could speak their "Word", their language. It is interesting that Slovenes as many other Slavic use a word "Nemci" for German people, the word in fact means "The mute ones", which indicates that they did not speak the same language. It must be stressed that the word "Nemci" is in no way insulting, it is the official word for Gemans still. . The name Slovenia for the land where Slovenes live is derived from the name of the nation and it came much later. Slovenes in Austria lived in several different lands, Carniola, Styria, Istria, Gorizia and Carinthia. In 19th century, when awarenes of nationhood arised, authors started to use the word Slovenija to describe the entire territory where Slovenes live, thus uniting the nation under one banner. Officialy the word was first used in print by a Slovene poet Jovan Vesel Koseski.
