Halloween. Ghosts, Spirits and Witches

Hwspiriti

Few days to go, and the dead will return on the Earth, to mix with living people. Nordic and Anglo-Saxon tradition, Halloween has become a fix appointment also for us, with fancy dress and themed parties, who distorted the religious meaning of celebration.

Origins as pagan ceremony - the name origins from the Celtic Samhain, which roughly means "end of summer" – was introduced in the Christian calendar by Pope Gregory IV in 840 as a holiday dedicated to all the saints.

The practice of dressing up to fool the evil spirits that on the night of All Saints who mix with the dead, dates back to the Middle Ages when the poor went from house to house on the night of November 1, offering prayers for the dead in exchange for food.

Shakespeare mentions this practice in his comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona (1593), when Speed ​​accuses his master of "lament like a beggar at Hallowmas”.
