Halloween Superstitions

Nothing says superstition quite like Halloween night.  Here are tales to share with your friends around a crackling camp fire after trick or treat.  Don’t forget the apple cider it will keep you warm throughout the night.

Peel an apple from top to bottom.  The person with the longest unbroken peel would be assured the longest life.  If you threw the apple peel over your shoulder, the initial it forms upon landing is the initial of your future mate.

A person born on Halloween can see and talk to spirits.

When bobbing for apples, it is believed that the first person to bite an apple would be the first to marry.

If you ring a bell on Halloween, it will scare evil spirits away.

If bats come out early and fly around playfully then it is a sign of good weather to come.

It is not a good sign if a bat lies around the house three times.  This means that someone will die soon.

If on Halloween a candle blows itself out,  it is said you are in presence of a spirit.

If a candle flame suddenly turns blue, there is a ghost nearby.

If you hear foot steps behind you on this night, don’t look back.  It may be the dead following you.  Turning back could mean that you will very soon join the dead behind you.

In Britain,  it is lucky to see an empty hearse coming towards you but unlucky if you turn round to watch it go by.

Girls who carry a lamp to a spring of water on this night can see their future husband in the reflection.

When passing a graveyard or a house where someone has died, turn your pockets inside out to make sure you don’t bring home ghost in your pocket.

One Gaelic superstitious states spirits that are bound in Purgatory are set free for forty-eight hours on All Hallows Eve. 

In Wales it is believed that those people who are destined to die within a year will hear a sigh that is carried by the wind which blows over the feet of the dead.  This wind will blow on Halloween night.

In Britain, people believed that the Devil was a nut-gatherer.  At Halloween, nuts were used as magic charms.

Halloween derives its name from the fact that in the Christian calendar it occurs the day before All Saints or All Hallows’s Eve.  It was the last night of the old year according to the ancient calendar of the Celts.  On that night it was said that the witches, hobgoblins, warlocks, and other evil spirits walked abroad and devoted themselves to wicked revels.  But the good fairies, too, according to some folk-lore, made their appearance at this time, but only from the hour of dusk until midnight.

Happy Halloween and have a save one.
