The trees were hung with goblin dolls, with huge plastic spiders on their roofs and a pair of bloody plastic hands outstretched in their graves...... The most terrifying night of the year has arrived. Are you ready? Halloween is also one of the children's favorite evenings of the year. They dressed up as monsters and went to their neighbors, knocking at the door and shouting, "trick or treat!"!" Of course, people usually give them sweets, such as sweets or chocolates. But if you don't, then wait for a prank, and you'll find your Windows smeared with soap, garbage cans thrown to the ground, and so on.
Even Halloween food is like a curse or a magic drink. In Britain, people drink a drink called "witch drinks", which is made from juice of apples, oranges, grapes and berries. Children also like to eat "Halloween bug", which is made with egg noodles. What do you think of "eye beads"? Don't worry, it's just a few scoops of chocolate and vanilla ice cream, just like the shape of the human eye. Skull shaped cookies are also popular.
On Friday night, I went to bond with my classmates for Halloween.
Standing at the gate of bond, there was a huge, terrifying ghost that greeted us as if we were in the devil's hell.
There are some students in there who pretend to be ghosts, but I'm not like them. I'm a witch.
Inside the most fun is hungry you damn fool reborn, my classmates and I play, first with his left hand to touch her ears, with his right hand twist your nose, bent down, turn around three times in situ, the teacher put potato chips in our nose, using your tongue to eat potato chips. My chips have landed, but my classmates have it. She is very cow!
Halloween is coming to an end and I really want to stay there.
The day before Halloween, the little lion sat at the window and saw the sun in the sky outside. He is dying to know whether the sun will come tomorrow. The little lion climbed to the high platform and carried his head to the sun. The sun does not answer. The little lion thought, "I am too far from the sun. He can't hear."
The little lion went up to the mountain and climbed to the top of the mountain and shouted to the sun, "hello!" A voice came from afar, "hello!" The little lion thought that the sun was going to hear him, and he was answering me. "Tomorrow is Halloween. Will you come?" The sun answered, "tomorrow is Halloween, and you won't come... "The little lion said," I will come." The sun also answered, "I'm coming... "The little lion asked the sun," what do you want?" The sun also asked, "what kind of gift do you want... "The little lion replied," I want a pumpkin head lantern." The sun answered, "I want a pumpkin head lantern... "
After the little lion went down the hill, he went to the shop and bought a beautiful plastic pumpkin head lantern. He put it on the high platform and gave it to the sun. A gust of wind blew in the night, and the jack-o '-lantern was "... On...... "The ground rolled down, and he rolled to the door of the little lion's house.
The next morning, the little lion opened the door to find a beautiful pumpkin head lantern. "Oh! This must be a Halloween gift from sun gong! The little lion climbed to the top of the mountain and shouted to the sun, "thank you for the gift, happy Halloween!" The sun also said, "thanks for the present, happy Halloween... "
Today is Halloween. We wear all kinds of masks, wear colorful clothes and go to school.
There, the foreign language teacher came in like a ghost. He was dressed in flawless white clothes and white powder on his face. The foreign language teacher came at him like a wild animal and scared us to run around. The foreign language teacher was so shocked that he laughed. The foreign language teacher showed us the dishes. I was watching with relish, the foreign language teacher ran up behind me and shouted, "ah... "I was scared out of my skin.
In the afternoon, the foreign language teacher introduced us to two people. One was Millie and she was dressed like a witch. Another is whitby. He's dressed like a doctor. They took out a large bag of sugar and sprinkled it, and the sweets fell down like raindrops, and we rushed over them with lightning speed.
How time flies, the whole time passes, the school is out of school, look in full pocket, I thought: this Halloween is really happy ah! I like Halloween best!
Halloween has always been a holiday filled with mystery, magic and superstition. it began as a celtic end-of-summer festival during which people felt especially close to deceased relatives and friends. for these friendly spirits, they set places at the dinner table, left treats on doorsteps and along the side of the road and lit candles to help loved ones find their way back to the spirit world.
Today's halloween ghosts are often depicted as more fearsome and malevolent, and our customs and superstitions are scarier too. we avoid crossing paths with black cats, afraid that they might bring us bad luck. this idea has its roots in the middle ages, when many people believed that witches avoided detection by turning themselves into cats. we try not to walk under ladders for the same reason. this superstition may have come from the ancient egyptians, who believed that triangles were sacred; it also may have something to do with the fact that walking under a leaning ladder tends to be fairly unsafe. and around halloween, especially, we try to avoid breaking mirrors, stepping on cracks in the road or spilling salt.
But what about the halloween traditions and beliefs that today's trick-or-treaters have forgotten all about? many of these obsolete rituals focused on the future instead of the past and the living instead of the dead. in particular, many had to do with helping young women identify their future husbands and reassuring them that they would someday--with luck, by next halloween!--be married.
In 18th-century ireland, a matchmaking cook might bury a ring in her mashed potatoes on halloween night, hoping to bring true love to the diner who found it. in scotland, fortune-tellers recommended that an eligible young woman name a hazelnut for each of her suitors and then toss the nuts into the fireplace. the nut that burned to ashes rather than popping or exploding, the story went, represented the girl's future husband. (in some versions of this legend, confusingly, the opposite was true: the nut that burned away symbolized a love that would not last.) another tale had it that if a young woman ate a sugary concoction made out of walnuts, hazelnuts and nutmeg before bed on halloween night, she would dream about her future husband. young women tossed apple-peels over their shoulders, hoping that the peels would fall on the floor in the shape of their future husbands' initials; tried to learn about their futures by peering at egg yolks floating in a bowl of water; and stood in front of mirrors in darkened rooms, holding candles and looking over their shoulders for their husbands' faces.
Other rituals were more competitive. at some halloween parties, the first guest to find a burr on a chestnut-hunt would be the first to marry; at others, the first successful apple-bobber would be the first down the aisle.
Of course, whether we're asking for romantic advice or trying to avoid seven years of bad luck, each one of these halloween superstitions relies on the good will of the very same "spirits" whose presence the early celts felt so keenly. ours is not such a different holiday after all!
