What is Halloween?
When is Halloween celebrated?
It is said that Halloween originates with the Celts in Europe where it was held as a festival to celebrate the autumn harvest and to ward off evil spirits. Although we currently recognize Halloween Day on October 31st , the Celts celebrated the following day as well because to them, this was the last and first day of the Celtic calendar.
It was believed that evil spirits would come on New Year's Eve along with the spirits of their ancestors. As a result, the practice of disguising oneself as a terrifying figure was originally practiced to ward off the evil spirits.
What do carved pumpkins have to do with Halloween?
The hollowed-out pumpkin is supposed to bear the name of a boy in the Irish story, "Jack-o-Lantern." It is a story of a bad boy Jack, who could not go to heaven or hell and continued to wander with a lantern.
In the original story, a turnip was used but it changed to a pumpkin after being introduced in the United States, and a scary-faced pumpkin lantern at the entrance or window of a house acted as a talisman.
Here in Japan, Halloween is simply an excuse to hold a fun autumn event where introverts and extraverts alike can enjoy dressing up and enjoying themselves.
