Grianstad, our one month of Autumn Spiritual festivities, includes Halloween and Samhain. And yes, they are different. Every year many dress up for the sake of goodies And having a good time. And in reality it really can be a blast if you are really taking part in the festivities and getting into it. But where it is Halloween actually come from? It’s actually a combination of a few different things mixed together but since my family has very deep roots in our ancestry throughout Ireland I can give you a little background information in regards to where Halloween originated from to our people.
Halloween is known actually because it is a day where the Veil was thinnest to where spirits could cross over for a short period of time on that particular day, to visit. They could check on old loved ones, sort out any unfinished business, and even just get a small look into the life that they had left behind. But where there is good, there is also bad. So on Halloween when the spiritual veil would open, it would also let in demonic spirits too. They would often harass and taunt the people. Therefore, costumes came from,when some of the Celts wore ghoulish costumes so that the spirits would mistaken them for one of their own, and leave them alone. Others offered gifts of herbs, baked goods, oils etc… to the spirits to appease them. In medieval times, the Catholics took on the local traditions and had their people go from house to house wearing costumes and requesting small donations. Later, kids started using the costumes to demand treats or replace their visit with a trick or prank if a treat was not administered. That is where the phrase trick or treat came from, because the children started to give the homeowner a choice as to whether they would give them a treat or get the trick instead. So now we have the custom of giving candy out every Halloween. But that is not what Halloween was truly meant to represent. Halloween was meant to pay your respects to those who had died, add birthday or anniversary of sorts, for those that you’ve lost, and with a good psychic, Oracle or medium… You could even speak with them. Perhaps, with the veil being so thin, they may even be able to provide you with a small sign themselves, that they are there. What will you be this year, for your costume? Be creative and have fun!
