If you’re anything like me, you may have already witnessed Christmas in Dublin’s first market in 2018, which was held to celebrate the end of the year and the passing of the one thousand and forty-nine murders. It began with a ceremony in the middle of Covid in order to start the event and had some of the best food stalls to feast your eyes on. But I couldn’t think of anything amazing to do at first that wouldn’t just wind up as a brag, that I’m sure a lot of you would agree with.

Things were going well, it was nice to see young families having fun while strolling around the market which wasn’t something we usually see in Dublin’s Chinatown. With Myntra’s launch of their first section in Europe at Christmas in Dublin, you can see a lot of future exciting trends that we’ll want to support.

In terms of events, Christmas in Dublin is full of community and political events, as well as a number of smaller events that can be consumed on-demand.

The evening before this is knows a Hallows Eve, and just the next day is a Halloween. People started to celebrate Halloween with utmost interest by carving jack-o-lanterns, donning costumes to ward off the ghosts, eating treats, dancing and having fun with the family.

HALLOWEEN : ORIGIN AND BELIEF

Halloween

Presently the area known as the Ireland  presently, earlier the Celts lived 2000 years ago. November 1 is usually the end of summers and the beginning of winters when the days seems short and the nights are usually felt longer, a cold winter, dark night usually considered as the mark of human death.    Cinco de Mayo festival

Their was a believe among the Celts that the beginning of the new year is basically the burning fire between the living world and the dead. Thus a day before 1 November on 31 October they celebrate the Samhein.

Where it was believe that the spirits and ghost were returned to the world in order to speed fear among the living and scare them and cause trouble to them and also they believe that spirit will damage their crop.

During the long dark winter there was a self of relaxation among the Celts that they believe the presence of the other worldly spirit and ghost made easier for the priest to predict the future.

OTHER PRACTICES:

Halloween

To perpetuate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where people were gathered in order to burn crops and animals as a sign of sacrifice to their Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts used to wear costumes made out of animal’s skin, and attempts are made to tell each others fortune.

Other practices included people going door to door asking for food by being in a disguise form, other addition to Halloween included “to see your face in the mirror in absolute dark with a lighted candle in hand, and you would see your future husband’s face.But this was stopped after a while and transformed into another calling “Bloody Mary” by looking into the mirror, ”these practices used to scare people, as it is obvious even if we are asked to look into the mirror in such absolute dark we would too get scared.

TRUE MEANING OF HALLOWEEN:

The actual meaning of Halloween is truly different as it is represented today, “All Hallows Eve” is the eve for the dead and just the next day “All Hallows Day” is the day for the living, but people now a days tend to focus more on the darker side than the brighter one.

Its actually a light telling us that brightness comes no matter how dark it is or it was, but people focus only on the dark side, celebrating the Hallow eve by disguising themselves in different horrific ways, watching scary movies, telling each others fortune, partying, they do such to ward off any evil spirit that might enter their way that very Eve.
