Halloween is coming, are you ready for the pumpkin lantern?
Halloween originates from the ancient New Year's Day of Celtic. It is also the time to sacrifice the souls. While avoiding the interference of evil spirits, it also worships the ancestral spirits and good spirits with food to pray for the winter. The night before (that is, Halloween Eve), children will wear costumes, put on masks, and collect candy from house to house.
Origin of the name:
Halloween is a traditional holiday in Western countries. This night is the most "haunted" night of the year, so it is also called "Ghost Festival." Chinese-speaking areas often mistake Halloween for Halloween. “Hallow” comes from Middle English halwen, which is very close to the holy etymology. In some parts of Scotland and Canada, Halloween is still called “All Hallow Mas”, meaning that on the day of commemorating all the sages (Hallow), The Mass is held.
Regarding the origin of Halloween, there are many versions, and the more widely spread is:
More than two thousand years ago, the Christian Church in Europe designated November 1 as "ALL HALLOWSDAY". "HALLOW" means the meaning of the saints. Legend has it that since the 500th century BC, the Celts (CELTS), who lived in Ireland and Scotland, moved the festival forward one day, October 31. They think that the day is the official end of the summer, that is, the beginning of the new year, the beginning of the harsh winter. At that time, people believed that the dead soul of the old man would return to his former residence on this day to find a living creature in the living, to regenerate, and this is the only hope that people can regenerate after death. The living person is afraid of the soul of the dead to take over, so people will extinguish the fire and candlelight on this day, so that the soul of the dead can not find a living person, and dress yourself as a demon ghost to scare away the soul of the dead. After that, they will rekindle the fire and candlelight and start a new year of life.
The origin of clothing:
Halloween costumes originated from mischief, adults take their children out together (usually adults drive to the side of the road, the child said: "Do not give sugar, trick or treat. Adults require children to go to the door to have a holiday arrangement. And people who have lighted the lamp, otherwise they are not allowed to disturb. In addition, the sugar must be always waiting at the gate, not allowed to enter the house, and the sugar to be recovered should be given to the adults for inspection before they are allowed to eat. Do not give food made by yourself, nor give unpackaged food. 
Halloween costumes, thousands of people, not just monotonous ghosts and devils. To make the simplest ghost costume, use a white sheet on your head and lick two holes to keep your eyes. If you want to play the magician, put on black and black pants, then put on a black hat, and put on the top and top of the hat. A small rabbit was kept between them; the child put on white trousers, and then tied a flashlight on the back and dressed as a little angel on the head; there were also parents who dressed the children as their favorite cartoon characters.
The origin of the pumpkin light:
The pumpkin light originated in ancient Ireland. Legend has it that a man named JACK is a drunkard and loves to play tricks. One day JACK swindled the devil on the tree, and immediately engraved a cross on the stump. The intimidating demon made him afraid to come down. Then JACK and the devil circulated three chapters, letting the demon promise to cast a spell so that JACK would never sin and let him down. After JACK's death, his soul could neither go to heaven nor go to hell, so his undead had to rely on a small candle to guide him between heaven and earth.
In ancient Irish legends, this small candle was placed in a hollowed radish called "JACK LANTERNS", and the ancient radish lamp evolved to this day, it was Jack-O-Lantern made of pumpkin. . It is said that the Irish arrived in the United States soon, that is, the pumpkin is superior to the radish in terms of source and carving, so the pumpkin becomes the darling of Halloween.
