  •   lvxarcana It still impresses me how the Catholic church has corrupted basically all pagan celebrations, makin people blind to the roots. And Samhain isn't an exception. This night, where the veil between the two planes is at its thinnest, was one of the most important for them, gathering to perform human sacrifices (and other brutal rituals) given to the fires for the lord of the dead, considered a stag god. They believed the roaming spirits were looking for a body to possess, so the Celts disguised as demons and other creatures, hoping to convince the evil roaming spirits they were one of them. Even the Jack-o-Lanterns (originally "Corpse Candles") have their origin, from when this night the druids gathered with pumpkins and fill them with human fat, taken from previous sacrifices given to gods. They would also bang on the doors of local nobilities and yell “Trick or Treat” to see if the lord of the manor came to provide a ‘treat.’ A treat would be one of the servants or even household members given up for sacrificing that night. The reward for the ‘treat’ would be one of the pumpkins filled with human fat and they would light it so that everyone within the house was protected from the demons summoned on Samhain. In this night the stag god takes the power over the world until the female goddess takes over in Beltaine. 41min

ahch_mikahl #Halloween has been changed over the past 30 years in two important ways. First, #children have been encouraged to participate by donning such inoffensive #costumes as Barbie, Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman. Secondly, #adult costuming and #parties have reached a tremendous apex and has become a most macabre day of #celebration.Historically, Halloween is the #deadliest holiday ever celebrated in human history. This #Satanic night is dedicated to the #Celtic Lord of the #Dead, also symbolized by the #Horned-god and the #Stag-god. The #Druids celebrated #Samhain as a 3-day fire festival, building huge bonfires, thought to ward off #demons that roamed around; additionally, the fires provided the means by which the required #human #sacrifice would be presented to the #sun god. In enormous wicker baskets, the priests caged both #human and animal #sacrifices, which they then lowered into the flames. Priests would then watch how the person would #die to #predict if the future would be good or bad. 17h
