Little kids’ birthday parties often have themes—their favorite things, like Disney stuff or trucks or dinosaurs. But when one little girl named Lucia turned 3 years old, she wanted her party to have a very different kind of theme: she wanted to go with the horror movie character Valak a.k.a. “The Nun.”
A Twitter user named Andrea (@dreeaaxo_) posted pictures of her niece, Lucia, who is apparently a huge fan of the demonic nun who was featured in The Conjuring 2 and then in a spin-off titled, aptly, The Nun.
How did little Lucia get into the Nun? Did someone let her watch the movies, or did she just see the posters? And why, for the love of God, isn’t she terrified? No idea. This is one strange child, and she is absolutely my new hero.
So it was my cousins 3rd birthday and instead of having a normal theme she chose this pic.twitter.com/U3FYpeGKTM— ANDREA (@dreeaaxo_) June 5, 2019
Andrea added that yes, the other little kids at the party also blacked their eyes out to match Lucia.
And if anyone was wondering yes her friends also participated in the theme pic.twitter.com/DDBnU2Qfmg

The tweet went hugely viral and tons of people had all sorts of ~feelings~ about it. Like, some people did think it was a little scary.

One person compared young Lucia to Wednesday Addams.
She is basically a real life Wednesday Addams 😅 pic.twitter.com/Kkk9IgtFJP

And someone else sent a picture of her own niece, who loves Coraline (who is not scary, exactly, but definitely still dark).
She should be friends with my niece. 😉https://t.co/bpphpiiQXB

Even horror master, creator of Get Out and Us Jordan Peele, weighed in.
Does she have a Godfather? https://t.co/70rUk0Lgiy— Jordan Peele (@JordanPeele) June 5, 2019
So what will the theme of Lucia’s 4th birthday party be? Something scarier than the Nun? What would that even be?
