affraid HALLOWEEN affraid

The word "Halloween" is a contraction of the English expression "All Hallow's Eve". Literally means "Eve of All Saints". Apparently then, this macabre and humorous celebration would be linked to an Anglo-Saxon feast and treated as strict observance by the Catholic Church: the First of November, Feast of All Saints. But this is not quite true. Halloween or Halloween is a holiday celebrated mainly in the U.S. on the night of Oct. 31. It originated with the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian feast of All Saints Day. In large part, is a secular celebration although some believe has a religious undertone. Irish immigrants passed versions of the tradition to North America during the Irish potato famine 1840.El day is often associated with orange and black colors and is strongly linked to symbols such as the Jack-o'-lantern. Typical activities are the famous Halloween candy or trick and costume parties, besides the bonfires, visiting haunted houses, jokes, reading scary stories and viewing movies this holiday terror.En 1840 reaches States America, where it is deeply rooted. Irish immigrants passed versions of the tradition during the Irish potato famine. It was they who spread the custom of carving Jack-o'-lantern "(hollow pumpkin with a candle inside) [citation needed], inspired by the legend of" Stingy Jack. " However, the party did not begin until 1921 massive celebrations. That year was the first Halloween parade in Minnesota and then was followed by other states. The party gained popularity in the progressive internationalization of Halloween décadas.La following occurred in the late '70s and early '80s thanks to movies and television series. In 1978, he premiered in the U.S. and worldwide Night of Halloween, John Carpenter, a movie set on the eve of All Saints which was a reference to horror films of series B, with countless sequels and imitations. Today Halloween is one of the most important dates in U.S. and Canadian holiday calendar. Latin American countries, though they know the holiday Halloween, have their own festivals and traditions that day but agree as to its meaning: the union or extreme closeness of the living world and the kingdom of the dead. The fact that this event has come down to us is to some extent by the huge commercial deployment and publicity engendered in American cinema. The image of American children running around the dark streets dressed as goblins, ghosts and demons, demanding sweets to people in a dark, quiet neighborhood, is engraved in the minds of many people.
There are many symbols that represent Halloween, some of them are:

Witches: Witchcraft is the set of beliefs, skills and activities attributed to certain people called witches black cats: if the cat was considered a symbol of divinity among the Egyptians, Celts, by contrast, developed a particular fear of this mythical animal, believing that black cats feline was the way in which a demonic power had become a person, that is, the cats were people fucking
In the legend, the Celtic goddess Wicca becomes a black cat to commit incest with her brother, Lucifer.
He says the body of a black cat is nothing but the disguise used by the witches themselves to walk calmly through the city to go unnoticed. Therefore, one of the traditions of Halloween warns that if a black cat crosses in front you tonight bad luck will fall on your head hopelessly.
Other Sibol of halloween would be: Owl: symbol of darkness. Sorcerers use sound to ward off this animal as they, the powers of darkness. They have their image as a good luck charm.
Toad: It was one of the plagues sent by God on the Egyptian people, because they considered it sacred and worshiped him.
Vampires: At the time of the Druids demons were represented by this figure. Then you know all the mythology of Dracula and chupacuellos.
Cats: It was a deity in ancient pagan cultures, in witchcraft is used to perform all sorts of satanic practices, was worshiped in the city of Ephesus in the Christian era.
Masks: false faces or faces are showing what it really is not a person, they used to be funny clowns to kings of Rome.
Half moon and stars: Used in occult practices, witchcraft, magic and symbols adopted by the "new era" they say we are in the era of "aquarium" (astrology, belief in the stars).
Crystal balls: Used by astrologers and new age, also have similarity to the practices which employs quartz, pyramids, pendulums for as they bring good luck or positive magnetism and hypnotism produce.

It is said that Halloween night, the door between the living world of the Beyond opened and the spirits of the dead were a procession in the villages where they lived. On this night the spirits visited the houses of their relatives, and that spirits do not disturb the villagers had put a candle in the window of his home for every deceased person who had been in the family. If there was a candle in memory of each deceased spirits do not bother their families, if they did not disturb them spirits at night and made them fall into terrible nightmares. Originally Trick or Treat (in English "Trick-or-treat") was a popular legend of Celtic origin whereby not only the spirits of the dead were free to roam the earth on Halloween night, but all other entities from all the spiritual realms. Indeed, although the translation is widespread "trick" in Castilian by the English "trick" and "treatment" literally to "treat", in the case of "Trick-or-treating" is not a trick itself but more either a shock or a joke so a more accurate translation would be for example "sweet or fright. Today, children dress for the occasion and walk through the streets begging for candy from door to door. After knocking the children pronounce the phrase "Trick or Treating", "Sweet or trick" or "trick-or" (from the English phrase trick or treat). If adults give them candy, money or any other type of reward, is interpreted to have accepted the deal. If instead they refuse, the boys spend a little joke, the most common throw eggs or shaving foam against the door.
