Do you have images of Zozobra? Let's get a history of the unique nature of each zozobra! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dolphx (talkcontribs) 01:15, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

1999 was Orange - picture on the LOC site. Dolphx (talk) 22:24, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Why?[edit]

This article does a decent job with who/what/where/when/how, but doesn't say why people burn Zozobra. Is Zozobra an effigy of someone specific? Is it just a cooler version of a bonfire? Ruakh 22:26, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

I've added a few sentences about why we burn Zozobra every year. I'm not sure if the "gloom papers" exist in stores anymore but I know they existed when I was younger. Hope this helps. Misspadfoot 05:56, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Most people just use any piece of paper, but I think the Kiwanis still passes out the forms. Cheers, Pete Tillman (talk) 23:53, 21 March 2009 (UTC), former resident
