So I managed to interview Justin the demon from my next release Abigail Cottage. It was dangerous but I had to do it. With Halloween lurking on the periphery of our vision, who is afraid? Halloween is also known as Samhain, Summer’s End, All Hallow’s Eve, Witches Night, Lamswool, and Snap-Apple.
The word itself, "Halloween," origionated within in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" or "All Saints Day, which is a Catholic day of observance in honour of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was called Samhain , the Celtic New year. Wherever it came from Halloween is now celebrated in United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Sweden...pwew, the list is endless.
It’s said that on Halloween night, the spirits of all those who have died throughout the preceding year will come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year. All laws of space and time are suspended, allowing the doorway to this world and the next to open up. My question is... would you dare to step though it? What would you expect to see? Is the spirit world the same as here? Do demons exist? It is said ‘Hell’ is of your own making and there is no specific place. Your thoughts and actions make up your own private hell, living or otherwise.
"Jack's lanterns" were originally made from turnips. But when the immigrants came to America, they found that pumpkins were far more plentiful. So the Jack-O-Lantern in America became a hollowed-out pumpkin, lit with an ember instead
Sit and look into a mirror with a candle burning beside you and you will see your future husband. What you are actually doing is ‘Scrying’ and the only face you will see are from the dead and departed.
