Halloween Day Origin
Halloween (alias: All Saints' Day) is a traditional Western holiday, dated on November 1st of each year in the Gregorian calendar.
Halloween, October 31st, is the busiest moment of this festival. Children will dress up as cute ghosts and knock on doors from house to house, asking for candy, otherwise they will trick or treat. Legend has it that this evening, various ghosts and monsters will dress up as children and mix with the crowd to celebrate Halloween.
Regarding the origin of Halloween, there are many versions, and the most popular ones are:
More than two thousand years ago, the Christian churches in Europe designated November 1 as "All Hallows' Day" (All Hallows' Day). "Hallow" means saint. Legend has it that since 500 BC, Celts (Celts) living in Ireland, Scotland and other places moved the festival one day forward, that is, October 31. They think that this day is the day when the summer officially ends, that is, the day when the harsh winter begins at the beginning of the new year. At that time, it was believed that the dead souls of the deceased would return to their former residence on this day to find creatures in the living people, thereby regenerating, and this is the only hope for a person to be reborn after death. The living are afraid of the dead’s souls to take their lives, so people put out the fire and candlelight on this day, so that the dead’s souls can’t find the living, and they dress themselves up as monsters and ghosts to scare away the dead’s souls. After that, they will rekindle the fire and candlelight to start a new year of life.
Halloween was originally a celebration of autumn, just like May Day is a celebration of spring. The priests of ancient Gaul, Britain and Ireland, Druids, had a grand festival praising autumn, which lasted a whole day from midnight on October 31st to November 1st the next day. They believe that on that night their great god of death, Saman, summoned all the ghosts of those who died that year, and that these evil spirits would be punished by being entrusted as animals. Of course, just thinking of such ghostly gatherings was enough to scare those simple-minded fools at that time. So they lit a bonfire that soared to the sky and watched these evil spirits closely. This is how the saying that there are witches and ghosts everywhere on Halloween. There are still people who believe this is true in some isolated areas of Europe.
The ancient Romans also had a festival on November 1, which was used to pay tribute to their goddess Pomona. They roasted nuts and apples in front of a blazing campfire. Our Halloween seems to be a combination of the ancient Romans’ holiday and the Druid’s holiday.
Halloween activities turned out to be very simple, and most of them took place in the church. But throughout Europe, people see Halloween as a great opportunity to have fun, tell ghost stories and frighten each other. So people no longer use this festival to praise autumn, but turn it into a festival of gods, witches and ghosts.
