Man Finds Mysterious Glass Jar While Digging (Photos)

While digging a hole in his yard, a man hit a glass jar and pulled it out of the ground. When he opened the jar, he was shocked by what he found.

The Reddit user shared a series of photos, reportedly from Costa Rica, in a post explaining what he found while digging on the property. He says he hit the glass while digging a hole to plant a new flower and dug the jar out of the ground to discover it was taped shut.

His full post discusses Brujeria, or witchcraft:

I was digging in my garden to plant some flowers when all of a sudden I hit glass.  I spent the next twenty minutes carefully digging around it and eventually pulled this out.  I figured it might be old money or drugs or even a time capsul.  I pulled the tape off and opened it up, and floating at the top was a picture of my landlord, when she was much younger.  My wife went to go get the landlord becausr she knew right away it was some brujeria.  The landlord came over and was just as surprised as we were.  She said it was definitely the lady who lived here before, more than 15 years ago.  Inside there was also strand of fabric, seemingly from a dress, and a piece of paper that had writing on it, more than likely a curse.  I would have read what it said but she insisted we burn it all immediately to 'lift the curse'.  After which she poured holy water on the ashes and in the hole. Oh, the muck inside the jar had a sickly sweet smell and had the consistency of runny marmelade.

Needless to say, the man living in the home was horrified to know that somebody who had lived there before him may have placed a curse on the property. It can only leave you to wonder what else might be around the home, just waiting to be found.
