Halloween Pumpkin

Halloween Pumpkin

Men in Black
On October 31st, in Anglo-Saxon countries - and particularly in the United States - it is customary to exhibit the traditional Halloween pumpkin. It is a fully hand-made squash, private of its internal flesh and appropriately decorated with cuts on the surface, designed to recreate more or less frightening faces. Alternatively, there are Halloween pumpkins that represent witches, ghosts, and any other image of the universe of the unknown. In the English-speaking countries, this pumpkin takes the name of Jack-o'-lantern, a definition derived from the legend which, by popular culture, defines the custom. As mentioned above, going back to a unique source for Halloween pumpkin is not easy, because narratives and narratives vary from nation to nation, often with considerable regional differences. Historically, the first findings about the ability to carve vegetables date back to 10,000 years ago, while 700 years ago the Maors used empty pumpkins to accommodate small fires and candles, so much so that this population uses the same term as both to identify the plant and the lamps. The most acclaimed legend of Halloween pumpkins, however, dates back to nineteenth-century Ireland, where it used to carve the most varied vegetables to exorcise the supernatural. It seems that this time was the most acclaimed legend about the Jack-o'-lantern, a popular narrative about the mysterious figure of the smart black Jack. According to tradition, Jack was a blacksmith of Irish origin, known for his passion for alcohol, as well as for his cunning. One night, when he went to his favorite inn to get drunk, it seemed that the blacksmith met the Devil in person on his way, ready to steal his soul. The man did not lose his mind, and, taking advantage of his cunning, convinced the demon to become a coin for a last drink. Jack took the coin in question and put it in his pocket, next to a silver cross, and thus prevented the Devil from resuming his looks. With the promise of granting him another 10 years of life, Jack allowed Satan to flee: two sparkles had passed, but the Devil reappeared again on the blacksmith's path. This time, the man asked to be able to seize his last apple before his death and, always with cunning, traced a cross on the trunk of the tree, thus preventing the daemon from falling. After a lengthy discussion, the Devil agreed to avoid eternal damnation of Irish, provided that he did not meet him anymore on his way. When Jack died, a few years later, he was sent to Hell for his life filled with lies and sins; however, the Devil refused the entrance, keeping faith in his promise, and helping the man to wander among the Scattered souls, gave him a tint of eternal fire, which Jack lay inside an empty sheep that she carried with herself. Thus the halloween habit was born, so that in the United States for decades the decorations for October 31st decorations were chosen instead of the current pumpkins. The immediate significance of the Halloween pumpkin is the memory of Jack's story, the Irish drunk who, daring for danger, challenged Satan to subvert him to his will. Not surprisingly, the faces usually decorated on the plant remind us of a drunken and smiling character, just like Jack's legend. At the deeper level, the pumpkin is nothing more than the exorcism of fear, especially for the supernatural and the stranger. Jack's legend, in fact, teaches how demons and ghosts can not do anything against the force of reason, which allowed the blacksmith to exploit his cunning to save himself. Exposing the lamp, as a result, becomes a warning to the universe of the stranger, a way to manifest the absence of immature fears. #halloween #Halloween_Pumpkin #Jackolantern #pumpkin
