When moving from Ireland and Great Britain to the United States, residents found that pumpkins, a typical agricultural product of this land, could easily be gutted, portraying scary, cunning faces instead of potatoes and beets as before. Then, they put the candles inside the pumpkin to illuminate, guide the wandering evil spirits. The pumpkin is also associated with the story of the miser Jack-O’Lantern in Irish folklore. Since then, pumpkins are associated with the symbolic image of the Halloween festival season. At this time, people will hang pumpkin lanterns in front of their houses in the hope that ghosts and spirits will not disturb them. The main symbol of Halloween is Jack’s pumpkin lantern. Legend has it that Jack was a greedy, miserly teenager, often hiding money, stingy never giving anything to anyone, once playing with the devil. When Jack died, his soul was not allowed to go to Heaven or Hell. So Jack has to wonder with the pumpkin lantern.
There is also a story that, on that day, those who have died will return to the world to find a body and enter to be reincarnated the following year. That is the only way those souls can be reincarnated. The Celtic people believe that that day is the day when yin and yang harmonize, the dead and the living can come into contact with each other. Of course, living people never want their bodies “robbed” by the spirits, so on the evening of October 30, all the villages put out the fires and wore extremely disgusting costumes, and paraded loudly. Noisy around the neighborhood to scare away the spirits that come looking for the body to enter.
“Trick” originally means: trick, naughty ghost game: “Treat” is welcoming, kind treatment, hospitality. Children and teenagers, young people dressed up with clothes and masks of ghosts, then went from house to house in the neighborhood holding lanterns, knocking on the door, and saying “trick or treat”. : “If you don’t want us to play bad, treat us to something”. Usually, neighbors always want to avoid “trick” meaning playing tricks, so they often treat them with candy and fruit (according to the custom with coins inside).
