Short introduction of Halloween

Halloween is also called All Saints' Day. It is a traditional Western holiday on November 1st each year; and October 31st, the eve of Halloween, is the most lively time of this festival.

To celebrate the advent of Halloween, children will dress up as cute ghosts and knock on the door from house to house, asking for candy, otherwise they will trick or treat. At the same time, it is said that on this night, various ghosts and monsters will dress up as children and mix into the crowd to celebrate the coming of Halloween, and humans will dress up as various ghosts in order to make ghosts more harmonious.

Origin of the Halloween name:

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 1st as "All Hallows' Day" (All Hallows' Day). "Hallow" means saint. Legend has it that since 500 BC, the Celts (Celts) living in Ireland, Scotland and other places moved the festival forward one day, that is, October 31. They think that this day is the day when the summer officially ends, which 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 homes to find souls on the living people on this day, so as to regenerate, and this is the only hope for people to be reborn after death. The living people are afraid of the dead souls to take their lives, so people put out the fire and candlelight on this day, so that the dead souls can't find the living people, and they dress up as monsters and ghosts to scare away the dead souls. After that, they will rekindle the fire and candlelight to start a new year of life.

Halloween was originally a festival to praise 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 for a whole day from midnight on October 31st to November 1st. They believe that on that night their great god of death, Saman, summoned all the ghosts of the people who died that year, and that these evil spirits would be punished as animals. Of course, just thinking of this kind of ghostly gathering was enough to scare those simple-minded fools. 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. In some isolated areas of Europe, there are still people who believe this is true.

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 the blazing campfire. Our Halloween seems to be a combination of ancient Romans and Druids.

Halloween activities turned out to be very simple, and most of them were held in churches. But throughout Europe, people see Halloween as an opportunity to have fun, tell ghost stories and scare each other. So people no longer use this festival to praise autumn, but turn it into a festival of gods, witches and ghosts.
