Halloween, All Saints & All Souls Days
The history of Halloween, like any other festival's history, is inspired by traditions that have transpired through ages from one generation to another. We follow them mostly as did our parents and grandparents. And as this process goes on, much of their originality gets distorted with newer additions and alterations. It happens so gradually, spanning over so many ages, that we hardly come to know about these distortions. Digging into its history helps sort out the facts from the fantasies which caught us unaware.
The history of Halloween Day is being explained here in the light of many traditions. 'Trick or treat' may be an innocent fun to relish on the Halloween Day. But just think about a bunch of frightening fantasies and the scary stories featuring ghosts, witches, monsters, evils, elves and animal sacrifices associated with it. They are no more innocent. Are these stories a myth or there is a blend of some reality? Come and plunge into the Halloween history to unfurl in yourself the age-old veil of mysticism draped around it.
