Beginnings of Halloween!

Halloween has many religious and cultural beginnings.
Some churches claim Halloween is a trilogy of celebrations, dating Allhallowtide to the first millennium.
Allhallowtide  completed the Triduum of Death: All Hallows Eve, All Hallows and All Souls.

All Hallows Eve!

It was believed that on All Hallows Eve, the portal of communication with the afterlife was more accessible than other times of the year, despite many religions that reject this notion.

Townsfolk would dawn masks to hide their identity during the solemn, hoping their disguise would thwart the evil spirits who would otherwise spook them in the physical realm.

All Hallows day!

Why were Halloween costumes invented?
The further you go back in time, the more spooky, creepy, and shocking Halloween costumes look.

The level of imagination surrounding Halloween has been sterilized since the days of yore.
Big-box stores provide us with gobs of choices and specialty boutiques are stocking the same kind of merchandise.

Perhaps Halloween held more significance to folks of yesteryear - when they made their own costumes.
It seems that, before the 1940s, Halloween was not family friendly party time.
Costumes expressed a genuine horror of the undead and strange entities that roam the earth in search of souls to eat.

There was a time when Halloween festivals were an effort to bridge the boundaries of reality and the netherworld.
To protect the soul from the season of afterlife.
Folks used to make costumes that echoed their fears - not pop culture icons.

All Hallows was a festival of disguises.
To go about incognito.
To mimic evil entities crossing into the physical realm.
To deceive them.  To trick them into thinking you were one of them.
To go unnoticed through the doors of purgatory as a radical entity rather than a fresh and juicy human spirit.
To carry on unmolested to your final place of rest.

Such is the origin of the Halloween Costume.
Certainly, when people invented their own costumes from scratch and imagination, the results were surprising and outrageous!  Of course, the same holds true today, though most folks simply buy a nifty pre-made getup.
Still, the proliferation of hobby and craft outlets provide unlimited inspiration - and there are plenty of folks who uphold the tradition of unique ensemble for Halloween!

The legend of Jack-o'-lantern

The oldest tale about the Jack-o'-lantern is the Irish legend of Stingy Jack.

Jack was a mean, miserly, malicious trickster, and he knew the Devil well.

One night, Jack invited Mr. Devil to a tavern for a drink.
But Jack had no intention of paying for a few saucy brews.
He persuaded the drunken devil to turn himself into a coin. 
Rather than passing the coin on to his servers, Jack walked out with the coin - in the same pocket as his holy crucifix.
The Devil was now trapped, in the form of a coin, lying aside a crucifix he could no longer shape-shift.

Imprisoned in Stingy Jack's pocket, Mr. Devil informed Jack that his soul was no better off by this trick.
Jack set Mr. Devil free in exchange for exile from Hell - but only for the remainder of the calender year.

How Stingy Jack became Jack-o'-lantern

By the year's end,Jack harbored a desire to extend the contract when the two met under an exotic tree with luscious fruit.

Jack told Mr. Devil that he was in poor health - so he could not climb the tree. 
When The Devil went up the tree for the fruit, Jack carved a crucifix into the tree trunk.
The Devil was Jack's hostage again.
Jack bargained that he would cut the tree down in exchange for The Devil's word on permanent exile from Hell.

Mr. Devil agreed and StingyJack died the very next day.
Heaven would not have him and Jack had n
owhere to turn, but to Mr. Devil,
who gave him a handful of burning coal and sent him back to Earth.
Jack was imprisoned in a forest, as ghosts often were in those days.

Jack put the burning coals in a hollowed out turnip.  A lantern, his only possession.
Stingy Jack's ghost became known as Jack of the Lantern.

Jack of the lantern would venture out of the woods and peer into windows, longing for a place to rest his soul.
Townsfolk carved frowny faces into their turnips and potatoes in hopes of warding off the Jack-o'-lantern.
Pumpkins have since become the de facto Jack-o'-lantern talisman.

The Halloween tradition of thwarting despicable spirits lives on.
Your Halloween household is not safe without a Jack-o'-lantern or two!

You can decide on Jack of the Lantern's ghastly expression!

old world Halloween!

Early records claim Christians absorbed some Celtic practices in order to convert folks without war.
Cultures would make peace treaties through religious constructs, subjugating each other's faith,
compromising in a stalemate - then war anyway.

The war may end, but the mix of culture and religion is never erased.
All Hallows festivals changed from thwarting evil spirits to donning spooky get-ups and extorting home owners of treats, threatening them with tricks if they don't give up the goods. 

Can you complete all of these wicked words?

Trick or Treat!

Scotland, Poland, and Britain held the tradition of guising in the 1600s,
basically door-to-door costume plays in exchange for gifts or food.

The plays weren't all for amusement.  People were afraid of religious repercussions in the old world.
Religious saints were taken seriously and these plays were intended to exorcise the home of unwelcome spirits.

Here's another spooky word puzzle right out of our new
Halloween Coloring Book!

or just color funny characters, this is a classic Halloween coloring page!

Halloween in the new world!

Around the 1940s, the three-part celebration of All Hallows Eve, All Hallows, and All Souls, was denounced by a Pope somewhere along the way. Favoring new Halloween rituals, All Hallows Eve was turned into Halloween.

Until recently, kids in Scotland and Ireland would spend the night asking townsfolk to "Help the Halloween Party!"
Around 1999, they added the famous American phrase "Trick or Treat!" to their Halloween Shenanigans.

Candy Corn!

jack-o-lantern and candy corn

When the weather turns cool and the leaves start to fall, it's a tradition to fill a saucer with Candy Corn. Set beside a small pumpkin, a dish of corns is the quintessential Autumn decoration.

This display is befitting 'til December - or 'til the pumpkin rots, whichever comes first. LOL!

The origins of Candy corn

stirring a confection

Mellowcreme confections shaped like bite size, pumpkins, chestnuts, turnips, corncobs and clover leaves began in the1880s when candy companies cooked up corn syrup, carnauba wax and water.

butter cream candy moldPatent “The Best Butter Cream Corn”

Wunderle Candy company innovated the molding process to produce segmented colors.
It turned out to be a big hit!

They branded the tri-colored candy 'Chicken Feed' for ten years.
Chicken Feed wasn't sold for Holidays or spooky traditions, it was penny candy is all.

Jelly Belly Candy, formerly known in 1898 as Goelitz Candy, branded their version of the tri-colored treat 'Candy Corn'.

Many other companies have made similar products since then.

Trick or treating gained massive popularity in the late 1940s.

The Candy Corn was so conveniently packaged, it was the perfect hand out treat.
Candy Corn became a Halloween tradition.

Halloween Coloring Pages

The corns have surpassed candy status - becoming a decoration.

From Chicken Feed to Halloween Icon, Candy Corn! Candy Corn!

Many folks rate the famous mellowcreme treat "the worst tasting candy"!
But, hey - some folks don't even like Halloween!

a drunken cosplay parade.

Japan on the spookiest day of the year and doesn't resemble Halloween at all.

Halloween in Prague, Czech Republic

Halloween in the Czech Republic is quickly becoming a popular holiday, due to the high number of Americans
and other foreigners living there.

Prague, being established in the old world, is undoubtedly one of Europe's most mysteriously gothic
cities. Truthfully, it doesn't need to be Halloween to get a feel for its ominous ancestry.

Halloween enthusiasts have fun in Prague, the city has spine chilling local legends, haunted cemeteries,
and even a torture museum.

One such mysterious local legend is vampires that made their home in Prague.
Of course, Czech locals emphasize this supernatural antiquity for Halloween.

There are plenty of family friendly spooktacular events in the Republic, but they have made a
monster mash out of 
The Bloody Sexy Halloweekend at SaSaZu for adults only.

With over 5,000 attendees each year. It got so popular that the organizers expanded it to Brno,
the second-largest city in Czechia, and Bratislava in Slovakia.

The Bloody Sexy Halloweekend has revolutionized Halloween in the Czech Republic.

Transylvania, could there be a more iconic place to visit for Halloween?   After all, Dracula actually lived here.
ccording to old tales, Transylvania graves have been home to Strigoi or roaming spirits who rise from the ground.

Romania doesn't have trick or treat, but the kids have been warming up to it in recent times.

There is no traditional Halloween culture celebrated in Transylvania, but they have for years hung their hat on the
mysterious history of Vlad the impaler with guided tours, day trips, private tours and adventures through the 
enchanted haunted forests and creepy ol' graveyards that are literally the landscape of this region of Romania.

vibrant flowers, skull and bones, as well as streets crowded with locals dancing with bizarre make up
and costumes that differ from American celebrations.
