The nights in October are getting longer and scary! For this reason, one connects the last October evening with the evil spirits. In the past, the children disguised themselves as monsters to protect themselves from ghosts and witches. Allegedly, the bad guys were wrong that the kids were like them. The Gentiles believed that the children were not being hexed and abducted in this way. These rituals were taken over by Christianity. That’s how the festival, known today as Halloween, was born.

There is another interpretation of what the Halloween tradition is from. At the time of this festival there are many memorial services dedicated to the dead. People disguise themselves as ghosts to calm the spirits. The limit of the afterlife is said to be thinnest on October 31st. Therefore, many terrible creatures come to the light, which must be chased away. The Halloween pumpkins serve to keep their terrible faces away from the evil spirits.

Why do the children collect sweets? This may have something to do with the symbolism of the gift. The little ones threaten a nonsense, if they are not presented for Halloween. As I said, the disguised people symbolize the evil creatures. If you give them a present, you win the favor of the witches, monsters, ghosts, vampires, etc. In this way, these baddies no longer threaten you, but they can do you a favor.

However, Halloween has turned into a commercial feast that has too little to do with its origins. Today, Halloween is an occasion for children to dress up and collect sweets. For the adults, this party is still a reason for the costume party. Many manufacturers have taken advantage of this and offer both costumes and sweets.
But has Halloween lost importance for this reason? The answer is that this celebration is still very important. Halloween lets us overcome our fears. The child is crying because a monster lives under the bed! On the evening before All Saints’ Day it wears a Frankenstein costume. Like every carnival, Halloween brings a role reversal. The costumed show what they find fascinating or what they are afraid of. The boys dress up as superheroes because they want superpowers. The girls would like to be princesses. The costumes of witches and vampires help the little ones to build self-confidence. These heroes are not only terrible, but also independent and fascinating.

Some consider Halloween a breeze. However, this festival is associated with many traditions. Besides, it has a deep meaning. When you spend candy or dress up, you participate in a sacrament.
