The history and aftermath of the celebration of Halloween

... wrong cover file extension ... Halloween as a holiday came to the post-Soviet expanses relatively recently, about two decades ago. A lot of articles have been written about traditional Halloween games and their origin, so you shouldn’t repeat it. It can only be noted that Halloween and All Saints Day are two completely different holidays that have nothing in common. The first originates from Celtic paganism, the second was established by the early Christian Church in opposition to the old Celtic tradition.

So what do people expect from Halloween? It's no secret that this holiday is commercially successful, many shops specialize in selling branded merchandise. Halloween games are usually carried out with reincarnation into representatives of the afterlife. For Slavic peoples, the tradition of celebrating on the night of October 31 to November 1 is usually associated with cheerful dressing up in costumes of witches and devils, noisy parties in clubs and cafes.Most people do not invest in this action religious meaning, although there is one. The tradition of celebrating Halloween is inherited in our country not massively, but more by young people. Guys and girls dressed in evil costumes hardly suspect the religious essence of this rite. Then a completely natural question arises: how does a pagan festival relate to the Christian worldview that is traditional for us and is it advisable to appear in our life?


On the night of November 1, according to the beliefs of the ancient Celts, the souls of the dead were allowed to visit their loved ones, if the god Samhain would be pleased with the sacrifices. Thus, this tradition will personify the transition to winter, opening the doors of the dark world. For the Slavic peoples who are alien to paganism, the holiday is just another reason for folk festivals. So is it worth for those who identify themselves as Orthodox Christians to insult their faith by observing satanic rites? From the point of view of the Orthodox Church, many Halloween games are spiritual treachery. Even during the time of the Russian Empire, this pagan holiday was banned as alien to our people.The Holy Fathers are categorical in their opinion on this.

 

Among the representatives of acting skills there is an opinion that the roles of all kinds of evil spirits bring failure and even the death of performers. There is a lot of evidence of this in both domestic and foreign cinema. Acting roles in the works “Viy” and “The Master and Margarita” are notorious, this is understandable, given the clearly religious content. Natalya Varley, the performer of the role of the young lady, considers this role fatal in her life. She married three times, but no marriage was happy and durable, not counting the many diseases that plagued Natalia after the shooting.



The film “The Master and Margarita” became fatal for the leading actor Anastasia Vertinskaya - this role was the last major in her career. Shortly after the release of the film in the rental she moved away from active stage work. In addition, some film crew members have left this world.



As for the foreign cinema, the “Poltergeist” trilogy was the last work for almost all the main actors.

A creative person is hypersensitive and receptive to the world of magic and witchcraft.Therefore, the theatrical scene and the set is a special place for each actor, endowed with a certain aura.

 

To the naked eye, one can see how the demonic movie roles affected the real life of the actors themselves. Halloween games also include an element of fitting the images of the inhabitants of the afterlife, which is a denial of human nature. So is it worth tempting fate in this way? Listen to your inner voice - the correct answer will not keep you waiting.
