What is Halloween?
Halloween is a celebration on the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day in many countries. Over the centuries, Halloween transitioned from a pagan ritual to attention of youths today. Modern day of Halloween in Western Countries includes Halloween costume parties. People also decorate their houses with haunted theme.
The Origin of Halloween
Halloween is related to Celtic people. According to their belief, October 31st is the day when spirits of dead men can come into the living human world. It is also the New Year on Celtic calendar. This is also the time for battle between saints and evil spirits. In Western Europe, they take October 31st as the most exciting time for evil spirits and ghosts. They also believe that it is the time when the dead can get closer to the living the most. There are a few things related to Halloween. Ghost, Evil Spirit, Reaper, Magician, Pumpkin, Soul, Witch, Owl, Black Cat and others. And Black and Orange for color.
Halloween and Pumpkin🎃🎃🎃
Halloween and pumpkin are inseparable. People prepare the pumpkins into scary appearances and hang them around the door of their homes. They light them all night to frighten the evil spirits.
The reason behind this is because of the legendary folklore about Jack O’ Lantern. Jack was a thief and being chased down by the villagers. He encountered the Satan and made a deal with him. He tricked the Satan to transform into a gold coin for paying back the stolen items. After that, he would vanish the coin and make the greedy villagers accuse each other. The Satan also wanted to watch the villagers suffer and agreed to do it. But as soon as Satan transformed into the gold coin, Jack put the coin into his wallet. He tracked the Satan inside and sealed with the cross of Christ. And so the Satan was trapped.
After Jack died, he could not enter the heaven because he was a thief. Also, he was not sent to the hell as he was able to catch the Satan. Jack had to live in a dark place in between heaven and hell. Jack asked the Satan how to escape from the dark. And the Satan gave a live coal from the fires of hell to him. Jack put the lump of burning coal into his favorite food, a carved-out turnip. And he carried it round to light his way. This is the Jack O’ Lantern. The Evil Spirits are scared of Jack who could even catch the Satan. That is why people light up the Jack O’ Lanterns on Halloween. Later, people replaced turnips with pumpkins because they are easy to carve.
