HALLOWEEN 2012



HALLOWEEN TIME!!!



Halloween night is coming!

Anche quest'anno nella notte tra il 31 Ottobre
 e il primo Novembre si celebrerà la festa di
 Halloween che i celti chiamavano Samhain. 
Sapete davvero cosa significa questa festa?
 Avventuratevi cliccando sui diversi link proposti 
per scoprire cosa significa veramente la festa di Halloween.
You know that Halloween was a Celtic Festival brought to Usa by Irish and now it is celebrated all over the world in a superficial way.
We have studied it two years ago.

Maybe you don't know  that  this kind of festival was celebrated also in Piemonte and in other areas of Italy because Celts occupied Italy in ancient times.

 Quindi anche se apparentemente sembra che la celebrazione di Halloween non ci appartenga, almeno nella classica usanza di mascherarsi e di esporre zucche vuote illuminate, in realtà la notte fra il 31 Ottobre e il 1° Novembre rappresenta una festività che risale alle nostre più antiche tradizioni. 
La celebrazione cattolica di Ognissanti si è innestata sulla più ben antica festa di Samhain risalente agli antichi celti. Essi non vivevano solo nelle regioni nord occidentali dell’Europa, ma in tutta Italia vi sono stati parecchi insediamenti celtici. Ad esempio in tutto il nord Italia: dalla Valle d’Aosta al Piemonte, dal Veneto all’Emilia fino alle Marche. 
Sappiate inoltre che tutti i nomi di città, fiumi e paesi che terminano in aco, ago, ico, igo (Giussago, Rovigo) in ate (Gallarate, Andrate), in visio o viso (Treviso, Monvisolungo) e in dubbio o uno (Belluno), indicano una presenza celtica che si è protratta abbastanza a lungo per lasciare il segno sulla denominazione di tali località. 
Non c’è dunque da stupirsi se nella tradizione popolare piemontese siano presenti feste e usanze celtiche come anche quella di festeggiare Samhain.
Samhain è una parola celtica che letteralmente significa riunione o raccolto e indicava la fine di un ciclo e l’inizio di un altro.
