Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is always celebrated on October 31, and it is one of the oldest celebrations in the world. It is the one night of the year when ghosts, witches, and fairies are especially active. The three days between 31st October and 2nd November see pagan and Christian celebrations intertwined in a fascinating way and is a perfect example of superstition struggling with religious belief.
It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. Over time, this evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as "trick-or-treating". In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats. 'Pumpkin carving' comes from another method used by the Celts to ward off evil spirits. They would carve faces in pumpkins and place candles inside to keep evil spirits from entering a home. The tradition eventually melded with the North America where the carved pumpkins are now referred to as 'Jack O'Lanters'.
The symbols of the celebration include spooks, ghosts and walking skeletons that represent the contact between the spiritual and physical world and between the living and the dead. Human figures that are often represented on the holiday are witches and wizards, who are seen to have the power to contact the spirit world. Blood, fire and skulls all have connections with death, the spirit world or protecting property from evil spirits.
You could have all these symbols as part of your new phone background! Enjoy it!
