History and Myth of Halloween tattoos
Halloween day is one of the most popular events around the world. The event has been invented (over 2000 years ago) from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. Earlier, people used to dress up like ghosts and light bonfires to get rid of/prevent ghost attacks.
They used to believe that, dead were open and they can be harmful to them and that was the reason behind the bonfire. In the 8th century, 1 November became the saints’ day for respecting the late souls.
However, October 31 is also known as All Hallows Eve. Every year, different types of celebrations, foods, festivals make Halloween worldwide popular.
Just like a controversial festival, Halloween has some myths as well. Here are some of the famous myths about Halloween:
- Poisonous candy: It isn’t true, and it’s a myth. However, in 1974, a father poisoned his child’s candy and killed him for the insurance money, and he wanted to take advantage of this myth. But guess what? He got BUSTED…
- No Pumpkin, No Halloween: Another myth! Many people don’t prefer to use Pumpkin instead, they use another prop. A larger number of people don’t even prefer to use pumpkins at all.
- Cat vanishes: Many say cats (especially black cats) became vulnerable at Halloween. Well, there is no evidence of it. However, if you love your cat, take care of it and keep it indoors always otherwise it can be lost, anyway.
- Satanism: Many say Halloween should not be celebrated, it’s a satanic/devil’s festival which is another myth. Many researchers and scholar says, if we look back 2000 years back, the Celtics had nothing to do with Satanism.
So, Halloween is a fun festival. Have fun, spend quality time with your friends and family, do pranks (Without being harmful), and ENJOY!
