Halloween: Dolcetto o curiosità?

Ott 30, 2020 | Eventi

Anche quest’anno è arrivato il 31 ottobre, data ormai famosa come Halloween.

Anche se questa volta non lo potremo festeggiare con “dolcetto e scherzetto” e le tipiche feste in maschera, non c’è da scoraggiarsi.

Ma quanto sei esperto di Halloween? Noi di In-Domus ti mostriamo qualche curiosità su questo giorno che forse non sapevi…

Halloween non è una festa americana. Le sue origini infatti risalgono alla festa celtica di Samhain, cioè la festa di “fine estate”. Questo giorno segnava la fine della stagione estiva e l’inizio dell’inverno, un importante momento di passaggio, considerato ai livelli del nostro Capodanno. Durante questa notte, inoltre, si pensava che il velo che separa il mondo dei vivi da quello dei morti si assottigliasse così tanto da poter essere oltrepassato dai defunti. La tradizione della notte di Samhain venne poi importata negli Stati Uniti, diventando l’attuale Halloween.

Il termine “Halloween” deriva dall’inglese “all hallows’ eve”. Con l’avvento del cristianesimo la festa pagana venne trasformata nella festa di Ognissanti, cioè in “all hallows’eve”, che in inglese significa proprio vigilia di tutti i santi.

la leggenda di Jack-o-Lantern e la zucca intagliata. Si narra che Jack fosse un fabbro irlandese che, riuscendo ad ingannare il diavolo più volte, venne rifiutato sia dal paradiso che dall’inferno. Costretto a vagare come un fantasma per l’eternità, si dice che la notte di Halloween vaghi per le strade in cerca di un rifugio. La zucca intagliata è un segnale per indicare che in casa non c’è posto per Jack. Cosa aspetti ad intagliare la tua zucca?

Anche la luna piena è un simbolo di Halloween e nel 2020, dopo alcuni anni, avremo la fortuna di potervi assistere!

I travestimenti spaventosi servivano davvero a spaventare… gli spiriti tornati sulla terra durante la notte di Halloween.

Ora che hai scoperto tutte queste curiosità sei pronto per festeggiare la notte di Halloween!

Ricordati però di essere prudente e rispettare le regole imposte a causa del Covid-19.

Noi ti consigliamo di guardare film horror, intagliare la tua zucca per scacciare Jack e di dare uno sguardo allo spettacolo della luna piena…ma attenzione agli spiriti.
