On October 31st, on the eve of Western Halloween, the streets of the United States are full of wonderful live performances, illusion magic performed on the stage, realistic corpses and ghosts, and screenings of various horror movies.
The origin of this carnival event was in the 500 years before BC, people living in Ireland, Scotland and other places believed that the souls of the dead will return to the place where they lived on October 31, and live in the living. Look for the soul to get the chance to regenerate. Local residents are afraid of ghosts to take their lives, so when the arrival of October 31, all the lights will be extinguished, so that the ghost can not find a living, and dressed as a demon ghost to scare away the ghost.
As time goes by, the meaning of Halloween becomes more and more festive. Therefore, the monsters and pictures that symbolize Halloween now become cute and eccentric, such as papaya monsters and witches. Americans who love to be creative, on this day, they try their best to dress themselves up and make Ghost Festival more interesting.
Halloween is a good time for children to have fun. In the eyes of the children, it is a festival full of mystery. As night fell, the children couldn’t wait to put on colorful costumes, put on strange masks, and put on a “Jack Light” to go out to play. The “Jack Light” looks very cute. The practice is to hollow out the pumpkin, with a smiley eyes and a big mouth on it, then put a candle in the melon and ignite it. People can see it far away. This embarrassing smile.
After cleaning up, a group of children dressed as demons and ghosts carried a “Jack Light” and ran to the neighbor’s house, shouting intimidatingly: “To prank or give hospitality”, “Give money or give food.” If adults don’t use candy and change to treat them, those naughty children will say: OK, you don’t treat me, I will tease you. They sometimes apply soap to their door handles and sometimes paint other people’s cats. These little pranks often make adults laugh. Of course, most people are very happy to treat these innocent little guests. So the children on Halloween are always full-bodied and full of pockets.
The most popular game on Halloween is “biting an apple.” During the game, people let the apples float in the basin filled with water, and then let the children bite the apples with their mouths without hands. Whoever bites first, who is the winner.
