Scary Picture Collection for Halloween Coloring Pages

Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31. The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.

In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain.

The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Then Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating treats.

The symbols of Halloween

The quintessential symbols of Halloween fall into three major categories:

– Symbols of death include graveyards, ghosts, skeletons, haunted houses.

– Symbols of evil and misfortune are witches, goblins, black cats.

– Symbols of harvest are pumpkins, scarecrows, corn shocks and candy corn.

– Ghosts and Skeletons : ghosts are universal symbols for the departed. Skeletons and bones are symbols of death. Samhain is the festival of the dead, so it seems fitting that ghosts and skeletons would be used. It was thought that on this night of the year, the dead roamed the earth freely in their passage to the hereafter.

– Spiders and Webs : spider and web represent dark, spooky places and haunted houses long forgotten.

– Bats : because they fly only at night and live in tombs and abandoned churches, bats are believed to be an omen of evil. They are commonly associated with witches and vampires. It is superstition that witches and vamps can take the form of a bat. The vampire bat is the only mammal that feeds on blood so it is no wonder they are linked to death and occult rituals.

– Witches : witches are thought to be tellers of fortune and to cast spells, both good and bad. This frightened many because it was believed that supernatural powers were strongest on Halloween night. The implication of being a witch has greatly changed throughout the centuries.

– Owls : large Halloween bonfires would encourage a large amount of mosquitoes to gather, causing owls and bats to come out. Superstitions suggest that owls ate the souls of the dying by swooping to earth. Owl screeches and their glassy stare are an omen of death and disaster.

– Black Cats : cats have been considered by many to be spiritual animals. Western superstitions would have us believed that black cats have special powers, that they can represent spirits or even incarnated humans.

Jack-o’-lantern as Symbol of Halloween

A jack-o’-lantern is a carved pumpkin, turnip, or other root vegetable lantern, commonly associated with the Halloween holiday. Its name comes from the reported phenomenon of strange lights flickering over peat bogs, called will-o’-the-wisps or jack-o’-lanterns.

The name is also tied to the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan and is doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed turnip to light his way.

Jack-o’-lanterns carved from pumpkins are a yearly Halloween tradition that came to the United States from Irish immigrants.
