Halloween History

Halloween is an annual festival celebrated on October 31st each year, and Halloween in 2018 will be held on Wednesday, October 31st. It originated from the ancient Celtic Samhain Festival, when people would ignite bonfires and put on costumes to resist ghosts. In the 8th century, Pope Gregory III set November 1st as a time to commemorate all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The night before was called All Hallows Eve, which was later called Halloween. Over time, Halloween turned into a day of activities such as quail eggs, carved jack lanterns, holiday parties, costumes and desserts.
The pumpkin light originated in ancient Ireland. It was said that a man named JACK is a drunk man who loves mischief. One day JACK swindled the devil on the tree, and immediately engraved a cross on the stump. The intimidating demon made him afraid to come down. Then JACK and the devil circulated three chapters, letting the demon promise to cast a spell so that JACK would never sin and let him down. After JACK’s death, his soul could neither go to heaven nor go to hell, so his undead had to rely on a small candle to guide him between heaven and earth.
 
In ancient Irish legends, this small candle was placed in a hollowed radish called “JACK LANTERNS”, and the ancient radish lamp evolved to this day, it was Jack-O-Lantern made of pumpkin. It is said that the Irish soon arrived in the United States, that is, pumpkins are better than radishes in terms of source and carving, so pumpkins become the darling of Halloween.
 
Halloween costumes originate from pranks, adults take their children out together (usually adults drive to the side of the road, the child said: “Trick or treat. The adults ask the children only can go to the door who is lighted and has holiday decoration. If you donhave that, you will not be disturbed. In addition, children must always stand at the gate when asking the sugar, but not allowed to enter the house. The sugar they collected must be given to the adults for inspection before they can be eaten. It is also required not to make food for home, nor for unpacked food.
Halloween costumes, thousands of people create thousands styles, not just monotonous ghosts. To make the simplest ghost costume, use a white sheet on your head and lick two holes to keep your eyes. If you want to play the magician, put on black and black pants, then put on a black hat, and put on the top and top of the hat. A small rabbit is kept between them; the child puts on white trousers, and then puts a flashlight on the back and dresses up as a little angel on the head; there are also parents who dress the children into their favorite cartoon characters.
