Sinossi
Secondo un'antica leggenda celtica si racconta che durante la notte di Samhain, posta al di fuori del ciclo del tempo, perché non appartenente né all'anno passato appena trascorso, né all'anno nuovo ancora da iniziare, si possa scorgere fra le nebbie che separano il mondo dei vivi da quello degli spiriti, un uomo che vaga alla ricerca della strada del paradiso, con la sua lanterna ricavata da una zucca e al cui interno ci sarebbe un tizzone ardente delle braci dell'inferno.

Quell'uomo è Jack!
Jack O' Lantern.

Ma chi era Jack?
L'unico uomo comune a cui è dedicata una festività che si celebra ormai in tutto il mondo!

Perché durante la notte di Halloween lo festeggiamo?

Quasi nessuno conosce la sua storia, "dannati loro!", direbbe Jack.

Incipit
L'autunno aveva già iniziato ad addobbare di nebbia e di silenzio le pianure e il mare, le pendici delle montagne e le rive dei fiumi.
Jack!
Un altro anno stava per finire per chi ancora conservava nella memoria i ricordi dell'antico calendario di quelle terre, quando ancora i mesi avevano i nomi degli alberi o delle lune e i nuovi giorni iniziavano subito dopo il tramonto…

Halloween… OR… All Hallows Eve… ????

 on April 29, 2015

It doesn’t really matter what you call it. The origin of our holiday (Halloween..) is subject to discussion and interpretation. And the truth is, even after the discussion is over, it still doesn’t matter..!! This book is a very intriguing look at one account of the origin according to Celtic folklore.

This book goes back into the history and myths about the Celtic celebration of the “Feast of Samhain”. Good Read!!

This book goes back into the history and myths about the Celtic celebration of the “Feast of Samhain”. That was traditionally a celebration of the changing of the seasons. The Celts only observed two seasons of hate year: summer and winter. This was the great celebration between the two.

So, that’s where Halloween comes from!
