November is just around the corner which means all spooky things are crawling into the woods. Booo!
On the night of October 31, Halloween is celebrated all over the world. People love dressing up as witches and ghouls, putting on the masks of the dead and vampires, walking in this form through the streets or dancing in nightclubs. Eve of All Saints Day or Halloween comes from an old English “All hallow ees” – Mass of All Saints.
Halloween - the roots into centuries
A holiday is an ancient Celtic celebration.
Celtic tribes that inhabited England, Ireland, and Northern France believed the year consisted of two parts – winter and summer. According to their calendar, October 31 was the last day of the outgoing year. It also was considered the end of the harvest season and the start of winter. Moreover, celts believed on this night the unseen border of the worlds of the living and the dead mash, and all dark things crawl into their world. To frighten the dark forces Celts put on animal skins, left the food for the spirits, and gathered around the bonfires.
The pumpkin became the symbol of the day, as it symbolized harvest and intended to scare away evil spirits with the sacred fire that kindled inside.
“Trick or treat” is the Halloween slogan in the United States. Kids like to dress up in creepy costumes, walk around neighboring houses, frighten adults, and those, to appease the “ghosts”, buy off sweets from them. However today, Halloween is celebrated all over the world.
