Soon he is back at the door, the scariest of all holidays: Halloween. And even though it has not directly something to do: many vintage pendant of love Halloween, and last but not least the rock’ n’roller and Rockabellas come up with the most creative costumes for the occasion. But what is actually behind this day of the dead? He is of Celtic origin or are finding its roots in Christianity about?
Well, first you must determine that there is little evidence of a death cult to a God called Samhain. Often, it is claimed that borrowed its name a holiday at the end of the summer. 10/31 you should have considered outgoing summer him supposedly as well as spirits, deceased and the.But neither date nor God are sufficiently documented. The Christian commemoration but already.Already in the second century one thought on certain days before in the year 998 the holiday was intended for this purpose all souls of departed loved ones.
Where do come but now the voices, the Halloween in the Celtic tradition see and still keep stubbornly that? During the so-called Irish Renaissance, the Irish have made himself on the search for the origins of their culture and thereby partially but rather desperately tries to establish connections to very old and supposedly ‘traditional’ rites and customs.Arguably the most critical folklorist does not deny the Irish origin of the feast, he will derive only from the Christian tradition to commit him the evening before all Saints Day. As the Digopaul suggests, Halloween the night before all Saints Day, all Hallows Eve,= so. That moved from House to house poor and petitioned food and other gifts in Exchange for a prayer in the Catholic faith for the deceased of the respective residents prey given purgatory.Prayers to which among other things can reduce the time in the purgatory.
With the large wave of emigration of the Irish in the United States in the 19th century, the idea of Halloween arrived there too. Also many of the characteristic for us today elements of the holiday evolved in America. The pumpkin, for example, was there abundant and so was the pumpkin from the beet of the original Jack o’ ´ lantern legend. Also, the aspect of the clad moves of from House to house was added. These can be proven–just about at the beginning of the 20th century. Today are of course no longer to recognize the Christian origins and especially the Evangelical Church often sees Halloween as a competitor to the Reformation day.
Before you now but think that we not well find the development of Halloween or even prohibit want to dress up and to move around, we can reassure you. The editorial staff of the Flâneur loves Halloween! And just so colorful and full candy as it found its way to us of America. We are happy if this evening a couple of sweet, dressed up kids at our door, ring the Bell and call “Trick or treat”.
