Transcript of Hallowen
Some Christians are against halloween because they think it's a satanic holiday established to worship evil spirits and promote darkness and wickedness.
Traditional activities include ...
It’s celebrated on the 31st October night, and it is also known as Hallows' Eve.
Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. It was a celebration to commemorate the end of the harvesting season in the Gaelic culture.
They believed that in this day the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to live to cause evil.
In the famous trick or treat, sweet popcorn occupy the top positions. It´s a tradition to prepare and give sweet and candy to the children. The gummies are also thematic and we can find pumpkins, bones or monsters. We also find Bonfire toffee, typical of Britain.
Since Halloween season coincides with the harvest of apples each year, caramel apples or candy apples are common during the holidays
Tradition has increased in other countries as Europa
The activity is popular in the ...
Going deeper to trick or treating, we would also speak about what de children do.
They go from house to house unocking at the door and singing:
TRICK OR TREATING IT’S HALLOWEEN, GIVE ME A SWEET, PLEASE!
And the people usually give them candies and chocolate bars, because if not, children throw state eggs to the owners’ houses.
Bonfires had become a tradition during Halloween. It is believed that bats gathered around the fire because of the insects that were attracted to it. That’s why bats also became additional attributes in Halloween history.
The legend says that a man named Jack placed a piece of coal into a carved-out turnip and used it as a lantern to keep the evil spirits away
Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or please them.
However people usually decorate their houses with carved Jack o’Lantern in order to keep away spirits
Inside these houses other games are played, like for example “Apple bobbing” or Apple or where the children have to catch the hanged Apple with their maths without using their arms and hands.
We use apples because Halloween is celebrated when Apple harvest finishes.
It was believed that Halloween’s night dead souls came back to the earth to spread illnesses and other disasters.
That’s why people usually were dressed in terrifying costumes and masks to be invisible to these malefic souls.
Apart from that, other Halloween activities are developed.
They go from going trick or treating to costumes parties and also visiting hounded houses and carving Jack-o-lanterns
