Value Village Halloween Costumes

Value Village Halloween Costumes

Halloween was originally a pagan festival celebrated by the Celts and born from the pagan holiday "Samhain".

Samhain is a festival that celebrates the dark season Celtic year. Gallic people also celebrated this event, which is called Samonios. Samonios has been replaced in Gallic countries by Christian celebrations.

Samhain took place three days before and three days after 1 November and had originally carved pumpkins, not sweet. People had a lantern made from a turnip. The celebration was strictly observed by the whole society and provided an opportunity to all barbarians to eat, drink and be merry.

For centuries, continental Europe converted to Christianity and abandoned Samonios for All Saints Day and Samhain became All Hallow's Eve.

However, we celebrate Halloween today has nothing in common with Samhain.

Halloween and All Saints are always closely related, because Halloween means "the eve of the Feast of All All Saints Day and the Halloween "is our Continental All Saints Day.

All Hallow's Eve, which evolved during the Christianization European population, was imported to America by European colonists and the ongoing Halloween party was created by the Irish emigrants.

In Belgium, two villages still celebrate Samonios (Samhain), born in Todos Santos, Grindin and Saint Gregory of vacation. One of these villages is Gouy-Lez-pedestrian. A friend of mine life in Gouy and when I talk about Halloween, she said: "We do not substitute Christmas holiday of St. Nicholas, we will not replace our All Saints Day and our Day of the Dead Halloween! "However, he agreed to organize a Halloween party with me next year.

Here are some of the countries to celebrate Halloween:

If some continental European countries adopted Halloween, not without difficulty. In fact, we believe this conclusion is too "American Marketing "style. People from the EU to give more value to their culture and traditions of commercial events.

The Belgians celebrate Halloween since more than ten years, but De Gouy-Lez-pedestrian refuses to take, preferring to hold its own Samhain-style holiday. Even if the people of Belgium to organize a day before Christmas dinner, they still offer gifts to children on December 6 and not 25 December. So I doubt that my country will replace All Saints Halloween.

Moreover, Belgians do not open their doors to unknown persons – including children – and we're not allowed to ask for candy. Indeed, many children are fighting in the streets to steal sweets from others.

The French believe that this holiday is too commercial and while this country finally adopted Halloween in late 1990, is now less appreciated. There are very few children ringing at the door asking for candy.

English people celebrate Guy Fawkes Day on November 5 and has adopted many customs Samhain. These festivities are marked by torchlight parades where children use masks beet and squash.

The Scots practice their ancient pagan rituals. The children wear costumes and cut scary faces into large rutabagas and place a candle inside. They receive candy when they provide a nice entertainment to its neighbors.

Trick or treating originated in Ireland, as usual, dressed in Ireland children will enjoy Halloween festivities They carried lanterns cut into large turnips. Children will be greeted by their neighbors with sweets and Irish houses will be decorated with Halloween lights.

Spanish people every type of holiday and Christmas. His children, then you will enjoy receiving candy from their neighbors and adults have the opportunity to have a Halloween party in each club. Spanish people also organize many Halloween parades.

Portugal does not celebrate Halloween; Portuguese people celebrate the Day of the Dead by the organization hall at the cemetery.

Some regions of Italy organize Halloween Events and it seems that the Italian children enjoy this event.

Other European Cities and clubs organize commercial events for Halloween (mainly for tourists), newspapers publish articles dedicated to Halloween, but I'm not sure that the People are actually Halloween. There is very little information on the Halloween festivities in Europe, Central and Eastern Europe in particular. They were carrying their own All Saints Day and Day of the Dead.

Australia and New Zealand begin to enjoy Halloween.

U.S., Canada and Quebec: Halloween is very popular and I think only a disaster in the world must stop these people to celebrate Halloween.

In recent years, there is growing interest by the Chinese people to Western events: Chinese people enjoy Halloween festivities.
