Halloween is coming this month and there is no escape for poltroons. It is the scariest night of the year and in the western culture, it is believed that the veil between this world and the next lifts and then all hell breaks loose. People have been scaring each other as long as there has been a Halloween. It is the only night where people indulge their darkest fear happily. Let’s discover how it all began; so hold your horses, dim the light and don’t be scared.
On Halloween night, masked children come door to door to threatened neighbors and in return they get candies. It’s a sweet ritual but why do people carve faces into fruit then lit candles inside them and adorn home with coffins? The truth is people take great pleasure in scaring themselves to death. This tradition is ancient; it is celebrated among friends, family and co-works. Some of the areas in the west arrange large community events to celebrate this night. The night time is the scariest time during this occasion.
On Halloween night, people prefer to go out in the form of a group. This ancient culture is preserved by Christians. Halloween is associated with dead souls. It is celebrated on 31st, October in the remembrance of saints and 2nd, November is called all Soul day for everyday Christians. On the second of November, church-sanctioned holiday in order to honor departed. This is really important for Halloween because that’s how Halloween gets its association with dead souls. The church also helped to establish the tradition of Trick-or-treating. The priests told Christians to pray for souls trapped between heaven and hell or in simplest wording purgatory. It’s not a pleasant place according to Christian belief. It is a little fiery place and souls are suffering over there. How did souls get out of purgatory? According to the church if enough prayers are offered a soul will fly up into heaven. This has a resemblance to medieval customs. Children go door to door, souling for a treat; soul cakes and in return for these treats they would offer up a prayer for souls trapped in purgatory.
