Bubak or Budak is a creature from Czech and Polish legends that looks like a demonic scarecrow. He imitates the crying of a small child to lure travelers, whom he kills, and then weaves a cloth from the souls of his victims. 

Glowing eyes and mouth make it look like Jack with a lantern. And sometimes Bubac is described as a kind of evil version of Santa who travels in a cart pulled by black cats on Christmas Night.

According to the stories, beboks inhabit forests, swamps, dark basements and other similar places.
