 万圣节起源于与恶魔有关的庆祝活动。骑着扫帚、幽灵、妖精和骷髅飞行的女巫,都是万圣节的象征。蝙蝠、猫头鹰和其他夜间活动的动物也是万圣节的流行象征。他们最初害怕是因为人们相信这些生物可以与死者的灵魂交流。

黑猫也是万圣节的象征,也有宗教渊源。黑猫被认为是具有神化未来能力的转世生物。在中世纪,人们认为女巫可以把自己变成黑猫。因此,当看到这样一只猫时,它被认为是一个伪装的女巫。所有这些都是流行的技巧或招待服装和装饰贺卡和窗口。
 
 
黑色是万圣节的传统颜色之一,可能是因为万圣节的节日和传统发生在晚上。
 
 
 
南瓜也是万圣节的象征。南瓜是一种橙色的南瓜,橙色已经成为万圣节的另一种传统颜色。在南瓜灯上雕刻南瓜也可以追溯到爱尔兰的万圣节习俗。一个传说是关于一个叫杰克的人长大的,他非常吝啬,死后不能进天堂,因为他是个守财奴。他也不能进地狱,因为他在讲魔鬼的笑话。结果,杰克不得不提着灯笼在地上走到审判日。所以杰克和他的灯笼成了一个失落或该死的灵魂的象征。为了在万圣节吓走这些灵魂,爱尔兰人用萝卜、甜菜或土豆雕刻出了吓人的脸,代表着“灯笼杰克”或“杰克o灯笼”。当爱尔兰人把他们的风俗带到美国时,他们把脸刻在南瓜上,因为到了秋天,南瓜比芜菁还多。今天万圣节的晚上,在房子的窗户上挂着杰克灯,让穿着盛装的孩子们知道,如果他们敲着门说“不给糖就捣蛋”的话,会有好东西等着他们。


 Halloween originated as a celebration connected with evil spirits. Witches flying on broomsticks with ghosts, goblins and skeletons have all evolved as symbols of Halloween. Bats, owls and other nocturnal animals are also popular symbols of Halloween. They were originally feared because people believed that these creatures could communicate with the spirits of the dead.

  Black cats are also symbols of Halloween and have religious origins as well. Black cats were considered to be reincarnated beings with the ability to divine the future. During the Middle Ages it was believed that witches could turn themselves into black cats. Thus when such a cat was seen, it was considered to be a witch in disguise. All these are popular trick-or-treat costumes and decorations for greeting cards and windows.

  Black is one of the traditional Halloween colors, probably because Halloween festivals and traditions took place at night.

  Pumpkins are also a symbol of Halloween. The pumpkin is an orange-colored squash, and orange has become the other traditional Halloween color. Carving pumpkins into jack- o'-lanterns is a Halloween custom also dating back to Ireland. A legend grew up about a man named Jack who was so stingy that he was not allowed into heaven when he died, because he was a miser. He couldn't enter hell either because he had played jokes on the devil. As a result, Jack had to walk on the earth with his lantern until Judgement Day. So Jack and his lantern became the symbol of a lost or damned soul. To scare these souls away on Halloween, the Irish people carved scary faces out of turnips, beets or potatoes representing "Jack of the Lantern," or Jack-o-lantern. When the Irish brought their customs to the United States, they carved faces on pumpkins because in the autumn they were more plentiful than turnips. Today jack-o-lanterns in the windows of a house on Halloween night let costumed cchildren know that there are goodies waiting if they knock and say "Trick or Treat!"
