64 Healthy Halloween Snack Ideas For Kids (Non-Candy)

Last Updated on October 7, 2021

Spooky Fun Healthy Halloween Snacks

Can Halloween be fun with healthy Halloween snacks?  What is a “healthy” Halloween treat even? Don’t get me wrong, I have a HUGE sweet tooth! I can’t resist candy corn or caramel apple pops; two serious weaknesses of mine. I spoil my kids in the month of October with lots of sweets, but we all know that overloading on sugar obviously isn’t healthy. It also changes our tastebuds, leaving nutritious food not as appealing.

I’ve found that the trick to getting my kids to eat healthier options is to just make it FUN! That’s what Halloween is all about, right? It’s amazing how I can get my kids to eat things they wouldn’t otherwise touch with just a few clever ways of preparing and putting it together. Here are some really creative non-candy Halloween snack ideas to get you inspired!

1. Mummy Toast

With few clever placements of sliced cheese and olives, turn a plain piece of toast or pizza into a creepy little mummy snack!

3. “Candy Corn” Veggie Platter

This arrangement will make the kids forget they’re eating something healthy! It’s also very colorful and festive on a party table. Serve it with a side of ranch, hummus, or your favorite veggie dip. Not only is the candy corn veggie tray cute but check out that pumpkin filled with hummus! I just can’t get over how cute these healthy Halloween snacks look together side by side.

4. “Boo”Nana Pops

Although this is made with white chocolate (only half an ounce each pop), it’s much healthier than candy, and certainly, a frozen Halloween snack that the kids will love! They will also enjoy being your little kitchen assistant on this one.

5. Spooky Fruit Spider Snack

This actually IS scary! Although it’s just made with fruit, I can’t help but think it’s going to start crawling around on that plate. And, the edible eyeballs are the icing on the cake.

6. Spider Web Pizza

How creative! Not enough cheese for me, but I’m a cheese maniac (I’d douse mine in a bottle of parmesan). I love the spider detail with the black olive, too.

Get The Details: The Domestic Mama


7. Cheesy Witch Brooms

These edible witch brooms are just perfect packed away in a school lunch or displayed on a party platter. Use kitchen scissors to slice the bottom half of a cheese slice, wrap it around a pretzel stick, and then use a fresh chive as a string to hold it in place. So easy!

Get The Details: Cocinanda Con Catman


8. Banana Ghosts

It doesn’t get much easier than this! Surprise the kiddos with this for breakfast or as an after-school snack.

Get The Details: Spaceships & Laser Beams


9. Spider Crackers

These little cracker spiders would be a hit for a school party! Peanut butter sounds better to me as the stuffing, but cream cheese is more allergy-friendly–maybe make a few of both?

Get The Details: La Jolla Mom


10. Spiderweb Nacho Spread

The BEST Halloween party dip! Who doesn’t love a bunch of yummy layers topped with a sour cream spider web?? Serve this party dish with a side of tortilla chips and you’re set.

Get The Details: Fit Sugar


12. Clementine Pumpkins Healthy Halloween Treat

It’s amazing how such a small detail can turn an ordinary clementine into such a fun Halloween snack for kids! It will also dress up a fruit tray quite nicely.

School lunch just isn’t complete without these mini spider sandwiches! Surprise the kids on Halloween with a creative and fun version of their favorite sandwich.

14. Cheese Pumpkins

Form soft cheese into balls, and then carve out the pumpkin lines with a toothpick. Now, insert a pretzel as the stem and enjoy with your favorite crackers! You could even do a larger version of this with your favorite soft cheese dip.

Get The Details: Fit Sugar


15. Octopus Hot Dogs

Our eight-legged friend here is easy to make and the kids really get a kick out of them! Use a bit of ketchup or mustard to make eyes.

Get The Details: Cafe Mom


16. Salty Bones

Easier than it looks! These salty bones can be made with refrigerated bread stick dough. Just slit them a bit on each end, and then fold the flaps to look like the end of a bone, bake, and serve them with a bowl of warm soup!

Get The Details: Disney



Popcorn Witch’s Hand

These are perfect little Halloween party favors! Fill a non-latex glove with popcorn and something in each finger to resemble the nails (raisins, candy corn, almonds), tie off the end, and maybe even accessorize with a plastic spider ring. Easy and fun!

Get The Details: Toni Spilsbury


18. Apple Monster

This apple monster is just begging to be eaten! I love how the almond slivers make for such gnarly teeth. You could even place a bit of peanut butter in the mouth or use another piece of apple to make a tongue.

This slithering olive snake is the perfect addition to your favorite cheese or hummus dip. Add little cheese eyes and a carrot tongue to really get the full effect.

You could also draw other Halloween characters (bats, black birds, Frankenstein, etc.), or write the word “Boo!”.

Get The Details: Becoming A Betaholic


22. Celery Mummies

Garden vegetable cream cheese and deli meat make up these cute celery mummies! It’s easiest to pipe the cream cheese on for a cleaner look, and then cut your deli meat into small strips and place them in a criss-cross pattern. Then, use raisins or dried cranberries for the eyes.

Haunted Pizza

A ghost-shaped cookie cutter will do the trick! The cheese tends to melt and turn into a big blob if baked too long, so bake your pizza first, and then add your cheese 5 minutes before it’s done. Then, use pieces of olives or capers for your eyes.

Get The Details: My Recipes


49. Tombstone Sandwiches

Turn their favorite sandwich into a tombstone! You can get two of these out of one sandwich (depending on the size of your bread). First, make your sandwich.  Then, just cut them to shape with a knife, perhaps using a round cookie cutter as your guide for the top. Finally, place black paste food coloring, ketchup, jelly or mustard in a plastic sandwich bag and cut a very small piece off of one of the corners to use as a piping bag to write your heading.

Get The Details: Parents

53. Puking Monster Melon

Out of all of the creative watermelon displays I’ve seen, this one is my favorite for Halloween. It’s actually pretty manageable, too. The only carving required is the monster mouth. Use the watermelon and other fruit to fill and let spill out of its mouth for display.

54. Cottage Cheese Ghost

A cute Halloween snack, especially for the really little ones! Use cottage cheese as your paint and a plate for the canvas. Perfect for a ghost!

62. Pumpkin Granola

Now, THIS is my kind of Fall treat! You could eat this for breakfast with fresh fruit, or use it top yogurt or vanilla ice cream. In any event, make a large batch and pack it away in jars to give away as gifts, too.

Get The Recipe: Skinny Taste

63. Fruity Eyeballs Healthy Halloween Snacks

Green grapes and blueberries make for the perfect monster eyeballs! What a healthy Halloween treat this is! I like the idea of freezing them for punch, but you could also use them as an ice replacement in the kids’ drinks.

30 Healthy Halloween Treats, Snacks, and Recipe Ideas 2021

Seeded at the Table/Simply Quinoa

Want to see something really scary this Halloween? Check the ingredients list of your favorite candy. There’s not a whole lot in there besides sugar, sugar, and more sugar. While every diet has room for sweets in moderation, you can still keep your spooky spirits up with healthy Halloween treats the whole family can enjoy. From ghostly pizza bagels to monster-themed wraps to mummy pumpkin cookies, it’s easy to have lots of fun with food when Halloween is involved.

“People can have a healthy balance of sweeter treats with some healthier options,” says ​​Andrea Mathis, R.D.N., L.D., an Alabama-based dietitian and author of The Complete Book of Smoothies. She loves mixing Halloween favorites with better-for-you picks, like topping Greek yogurt with candy corn and fruit or carving bell peppers into Jack-o’-lanterns and filling them with veggies and dip.

Now, when you have kids coming home with candy at the end of a night of trick-or-treating, just go ahead and enjoy a piece or two. Then, tuck away the basket after they make their selection, so they don’t gobble it all up in one go. Choose a time each day where you’ll put the candy back out, so you can continue to enjoy the treats without overdoing it.

Healthy Halloween Snacks {Perfect for Parties!}

With just a black sharpie, you can turn string cheese, clementines, and fruit cups into cute and festive healthy Halloween snacks. They’re so easy!!

Party perfect healthy Halloween snacks are great to pair with Halloween Gak Treats, Mummy Cookies, and Slushy Punch for any festivity. They make great hand-outs too!!

Halloween Snacks for Party

I’ve helped with my fair share of Halloween class parties, and I usually have a good idea of what is expected. Usually there are some yummy treats, costume contests and fun games in the itinerary, but last year I was asked to do only healthy Halloween Snacks.

I thought it was going to be tough finding some cute but healthy ideas, but alas, it wasn’t too hard at all. The teacher wanted 3 snacks for each of the kids so I decided to make some Ghost String Cheese, Pumpkin Clementines and Pumpkin Peach Cups.

It took a little time drawing all the faces on, but it was very simple and was perfect for the party. I thought the kids might be disappointed that they weren’t getting candy, but they loved the pumpkin and ghost faces so much, they didn’t seem to even notice!!

These aren’t only great for classroom parties but for any party. We all know that we get our fair share of treats at these types of events, so it’s nice to have a few healthy treats mixed in there. 😉

Easy Halloween Snacks

GATHER. Much isn’t needed to make these cute and healthy Halloween Snacks. All you will need is:

  • String Cheese
  • Peach Cups
  • Clementines
  • Black Sharpies

DRAW!! Just draw faces on, making sure they dry and you’re set! EASY PEASY!! Here are close ups of the snacks…

More Halloween Party Ideas!

Along with healthy Halloween treats you can have some fun Halloween activities for the kids to do. I have a couple of trivia sheets as well as links to some coloring pages that you might like to use:

More healthy snacks ideas:

  • Celery Monsters: Add peanut butter to a piece of celery and then place 3-4 candy eyes on top
  • Ghost Fruit Cup: Use pear fruit cups and draw a ghost face.
  • Spider Crackers: add peanut butter to a Ritz cracker. Use pretzels for the 8 leaves, Top with a second cracker. Finally, add red hots for eyes.
  • Banana Ghosts: Peel and cut a banana in half. Add mini chocolate chips to the tops for eyes.
  • Apple Mummy: Use a vegetable peeler to partially peel the skin to look like a mummy. Add mini chocolate chips for eyes or candy eyes.
  • Frankenstein Cup: Fill a clear cup with green grapes. Place a plastic lid on top then use the marker to draw a Frankenstein face.

50 Healthy Halloween Recipes From Easy Snacks To Sweet Treats

When someone uses the words “healthy” and “Halloween” together in a sentence, you probably flash back to that neighbor who passes out boxes of raisins instead of candy to trick-or-treaters. Or perhaps you think about that one Halloween when you were stuck in the corner eating carrot sticks while everyone else went ham on the pumpkin cheesecake at your friend’s costume party (ok, maybe that’s just me).

Needless to say, none of this screams Halloween fun. Good news, though: You can still get in on the holiday spirit without totally blowing off your health goals on the spookiest night of the year.

“I always tell my clients that a healthy lifestyle is one that accommodates treats, pleasures, and special occasions,” says registered dietician Gena Hamshaw.

It’s all about maintaining a sense of balance. “Fiber, protein, and healthful fat help us to feel full, so it’s a wise idea to emphasize them during Halloween or any other holiday. The more satisfied we are with our food, the less likely we are to go overboard with sweets,” Hamshaw adds.

She recommends helping yourself to a portion that feels satisfying—not excessive. “If you can make Halloween treats that are a little lower in sugar and a little higher in fiber than conventional candy, that’s great,” says Hamshaw.

If you have food allergies or a specialized eating style, you should also make sure to go for Halloween goodies that fit your dietary needs. For example, picking a low-carb treat, like these cookies, if you’re on keto.

From caramel apple, to cinnamon, to maple, to pumpkin spice, there are plenty of ways to incorporate your favorite seasonal flavors into healthy Halloween recipes that actually taste good. Plus, you can make even the simplest of recipes festive by adding a little Halloween flair, say a faux spider web over the dish. It’s all about imagination.

Here’s a list of healthy Halloween recipes that bring on the creativity—and will totally steal the show at your next costume party.

2. Stuffed Goblin Eyes



  • 12 eggs;
  • red food coloring;
  • 170 g mayonnaise;
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard;
  • salt – to taste;
  • ground black pepper – to taste;
  • 12 olives stuffed with pepper.


Place the eggs in one layer in a wide saucepan and cover them completely with water. Place a lid on the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and leave eggs in water for 15 minutes. Then put them in ice water and cool completely.

Pour hot water into another saucepan. Add dye to make the liquid dark red. Gently crush the shell around the entire perimeter, but do not remove it. Place the eggs in a saucepan so that the colored water is completely covering them.Leave it on for 30 minutes.

Shell the eggs. “Veins” will appear on them. Cut the eggs in half across and remove the yolks. Combine the yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper until smooth.

3.Pumpkin heads with cream filling



  • 140 g butter;
  • 175 g flour + a little for rolling;
  • 100 g + 1 teaspoon of powdered sugar;
  • 1 orange;
  • 100 g mascarpone;
  • 25 g dark chocolate.


Spread the softened butter with a spatula. Add flour, 50 g icing sugar and finely grated orange zest and knead to a homogeneous dough.Form a ball out of it, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.

Powder the work surface with flour and roll out the dough into a layer approximately 3 mm thick. Cut an even number of round pieces out of it and place on a baking sheet.

From the remaining dough, make pumpkin stalks and stick them to half of the blanks. Cut out the eyes, noses, and mouths on the same cookies. Use a knife to make deep stripes, like on the surface of a pumpkin. If they are not deep enough, they may disappear during baking.

Place the baking sheet in an oven preheated to 160 ° C for 15 minutes – the cookies should turn golden. Then cool completely. If this is not done, the filling may leak.

Combine mascarpone, a teaspoon of powdered sugar and melted chocolate. Separately mix 50 g of icing sugar and 1-2 tablespoons of orange juice until smooth.

Horror holiday Halloween (after English Helloween) has taken root with us, having come from Western countries and America. It is celebrated on October 31, before All Saints Day according to the Catholic calendar. Let’s put aside the heated discussions of religious leaders that the holiday is “demonic”, contradicts Christianity and should not be celebrated.🙂 We just want to have fun and please our loved ones with original “scary” treats. In order to compose our scary Halloween menu, let’s see what you can cook delicious and “creepy” so that there is hot and different cold snacks on the table, and we will not forget about sweets and drinks. 🙂 And so, the ideas of dishes that can be easily and simply prepared with your own hands, which are suitable for children, and at an adult party at home will appeal to your taste!

Halloween hot dishes

A roast in the form of a human hand called “Vampire’s Hand” will first surprise you with an ominous look, then when the guests taste on the “finger”, not a crumb will remain of it! Cooking such a dish is very simple.We make minced meat, as for cutlets, beat it well, form a hand from it on a baking sheet and bake it in the oven. The nails and the piece of bone sticking out from the base of the hand is made from a bow. Can be drizzled over with a thin stream of ketchup for a blood effect.

The meat on the ribs, seasoned and well baked, looks ominous, but how delicious! You can present it to guests as a “Piece of the Dead”. To make the dish more “creepy”, placed in the center of the dish, a half of bell pepper, representing a heart, can be pierced with a knife.

Scary Halloween Snacks

The familiar julienne, decorated with unsweetened shortbread dough in the shape of a spider, is both delicious and will perfectly suit the table on Halloween.

Pizza “scary” in the form of a spider in a web will appeal to adults and children. Put on the pizza cake what you have chosen for filling, put ketchup on top, bake. When the finished pizza has cooled slightly, draw a cobweb on top with mayonnaise. Place an olive spider in the center.

Another version of the “terrible” pizza: put the figures of ghosts cut out of cheese on ketchup, put them back in the oven for a while so that they melt a little. The eyes are pieces of olives.

Cold appetizer “Zombie Head” or “Mummy” – effective on the table and at the same time tasty and easy to prepare! You will need any mask that has facial contours. Cut the ham into thin slices, cover the mask from the inside with them in one layer. Mix cold meat in pieces with chopped eggs and mayonnaise, fill the mask with the mixture.We put it in the refrigerator for a short time, then gently turn it over onto a dish. Making the eyes: insert slices of carrots into the green olives.

Terrible snacks and hot guests ate with pleasure, appreciated the design and taste, queue for sweets.

Scary Halloween Desserts

“Dissatisfied” bananas with tangerine pumpkin are made in a couple of minutes. Peel bananas, cut in half. We decorate each half with chocolate plaques – we make eyes and mouth. Put the cut part on a plate.We peel the tangerines, stick a piece of green onion stalk into each on top and put it next to the bananas – why not a pumpkin?

It takes a lot of work to make the graveyard worms, but the dish is worth it. Take dry jelly, preferably red or pink. Thick sticks for juice, set vertically in the container. We make jelly according to the instructions, pour it into a narrow and high container so that each stick is filled with it. When the jelly hardens, gently squeeze it out of the sticks onto a plate.”Disgusting” worms are ready! Agree that this is original and simple. 🙂

Where’s the “awful” pastries? What did the hostess of the holiday come up with on this score?

Scary Halloween Baking

The simplest pumpkin pie with a shortcrust base doesn’t look very ominous. But the filling is from pumpkin – the main “heroine” of Halloween. Therefore, any version of the cake can be safely included in the scary Halloween menu.

We make rounds from shortcrust pastry, apply white and chocolate icing on top, form a pattern with a stick – the web cookie is ready.

Agree that this cookie looks well, very “disgusting”. Needless to say, what is it like? 🙂 It is very simple to prepare the dessert: we plant the chocolate dough for the cake in the form of “heaps”, bake and the “nasty” treat is ready!

Witch’s fingers – tasty and disgusting to look at – and this is exactly what you need! Sandy “fingers” are decorated with halves of almonds, which really look like nails! You will find a step-by-step recipe with a photo of “fingers” and other original video recipes demonstrating how easy and simple it is to prepare scary Halloween pastries by clicking on the link.

And what to drink with all these “disgusting” sweets? Drinks are essential for the spooky Halloween menu.

Spooky Halloween drinks for kids and adults

“Bloody Mary” will temporarily be renamed “Blood of Dracula”. Tomato juice, Tabasco sauce, a little pepper and salt, a little vodka. This is for adults, and we will serve the same to children in different glasses, but without vodka.

Punch “Dead Man’s Hand” will also be made in two versions – with and without alcohol.The hand that looks so “scary” out of the punch is done like this: the rubber glove is filled with water, placed in the freezer, before the punch is made, we cut the glove and take out the ice. We put our hand in the middle of the vase with the punch; for a more “terrible” effect, pour red thick syrup. We make the punch itself from juices and pieces of fruit, add wine to the “adult” version. To heighten the effect, you can throw pieces of white meringue into the punch, but you can do without them.

Interesting new ideas on how to decorate the dishes included in the menu for the holiday, how to decorate sweets and other scary food for Halloween can be gleaned from the video.

You can complement your scary Halloween menu using video recipes from the zombie chef.

Halloween with imagination: 8 culinary ideas with photo

Celebrating Halloween, we follow the main trendsetter – the USA, forgetting that this is an ancient Celtic holiday, symbolizing the beginning of winter and the long captivity of the Sun by the lord of the dead.According to their beliefs, November 1 opened the transition between summer and winter, between life and death, the earth hung in an intermediate state, when everything was possible, including the coming of spirits in all kinds of guises. To scare off hungry ghosts, the Celts, like many ancient peoples, used the “treat like like” method and decorated their homes with scary images, burned fires and prepared special dishes – just like we do on New Year’s. The ancient Celts could not imagine what their New Year would turn into over time.With the arrival of the Romans, the Celtic holiday of the beginning of winter mixed with the day of remembrance of the dead and the day of the goddess of the fruits of Pomona, which added both mysticism and a culinary component to it. Christianity gave the pagan holiday a “decent” name – All Saints Day, but could not eradicate the traditions of its celebration.

Already in the 19th century, the meaning of the ancient holiday was forgotten. It turned into an excuse to throw a party with an original treat, a costume show and scare each other more.If many centuries ago the most “terrible” dish of the holiday were Jack’s faces, carved from apples, and later from pumpkins, now Halloween is surrounded by a whole entertainment industry. In the USA, Canada, Europe, where the celebration of Halloween has long been put on commercial rails, it is very easy to arrange a noir-style party – buy ready-made costumes, home decorations, toys and candies in the form of monsters, ghosts, skeletons … The most creative chefs make cakes in the form severed heads, hearts, brains, gravestones – it couldn’t be easier if you buy a suitable form for jelly or baking, food coloring, marzipan and marmalade for decorations in a special store.

Although similar things are starting to appear in our stores, Russian Halloween lovers often have to go a different, more thorny path to surprise their friends and family. This article is to help them. We will show you how to create simple “horror stories” for a Halloween party using the available products. We paid special attention to the healthiness of the dishes.

1. Black cat skeleton

To create this light snack that creates the mood of a scary evening, you need fresh vegetables: slices of tomatoes, cucumbers or mushrooms for the spine and tail, celery stalks and carrots for paws, cherry tomatoes or olives for joints and eyes, bean pods or sweet pepper – for ribs, broccoli and cauliflower – to simulate wool.Use the cheese triangles as ears and fangs. The head will represent a bowl of sauce with which this “dish” should be eaten.

For the sauce, combine mashed boiled red beans or lentils with olive oil, lemon juice, ground ginger and add soy sauce or a few drops of Tabasco.

2. Sandwiches with eyes

On bases of raw or boiled carrots, place balls of cottage cheese or soft cheese and press with halves of black olives.Such “eyes” can also be used to decorate salads and main dishes.

3. Critters

To create this simple snack that kids and adults alike will love, you need a few hard apples and almonds or peanuts.

Cut the apples into quarters, cut out the center and the wedge on the opposite side, so that you get an open mouth, into which you insert your teeth – halves of peeled nuts. To keep the apples from darkening, sprinkle them with orange or lemon juice.

4. Drowned man’s hands

In a bowl of sauce or melted cheese, place small carrots or sausages with long almond nails glued onto mayonnaise, or simply paint your nails with mayonnaise.

Drowned Man’s Hands can also be made from tinted water or juice frozen in a rubber glove. These hands can be disguised in a fruit salad or ice cream platter.

Elegant and delicious Freddy Krueger fingers can be easily made from asparagus stalks wrapped in thin slices of ham.

5. Pizza Mummy

Take a few small pizza pieces or cut round buns lengthwise. Make eyes out of the olives cut into circles, in the middle of which place the pupils – pieces of red or green pepper. Place the cheese strips in the remaining space. Bake in the oven or microwave until the cheese is melted.

6. Food for Zombies

Any salad can be turned into a zombie treat – brains – with a top layer of boiled shrimp and ketchup.

A more sophisticated option is a brain cut from a watermelon. This dish requires patience and skill, but will undoubtedly be remembered by your guests for a long time.

7. Monster Eggs

For boiled eggs, cut off the bottom for stability. Cut the eggs across, insert a circle of tomato or cucumber between the halves, on which draw fangs with mayonnaise. Attach the olives-eyes and parsley-hairs with toothpicks. Monsters’ nose can be made from pepper.

In a simpler version, monster eggs are made from boiled eggs cut along the length, in which instead of the yolk there is a filling depicting scary faces.

8. Wormy dishes

Bright marmalade worms are one of the few “scary” delicacies that can be found in our stores. With their help, any cocktail can be turned into a Halloween dish, or you can show a little imagination and cook wormy apples.

To do this, core the apples through the top, leaving the bottom intact.Fill the apples with raisins, nuts or oatmeal, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. When the apples have cooled slightly, place a worm in each. Likewise, you can adapt almost any dish for Halloween, from potato cakes to hamburgers. The main thing is not to expose the worms to heat.

And finally, a simple Halloween table setting idea. Browse the web and print on a large sheet of paper, or draw yourself a real or dreamlike landscape that inspires horror.Use this picture as a background for serving ghost, monster and bat cookies or candy.

History of Halloween

It will not be an exaggeration if we say that the holidays are the most long-awaited events in the life of each of us. Even more – we call every long-awaited event a holiday: birthday, March 8, New Year, vacation, salary.For some we prepare for a long time and thoroughly, while others pass almost by us, that is, we seem to know that this is some special day of the calendar, but we do not spend it in a special way.

One of the holidays that many of us know about, but not all celebrate, is Halloween. All Saints’ Eve, or, as it is called in another way, Halloween , ​​is traditionally celebrated on October 31 in the company of witches, devils, vampires and demons, surrounded by burning eyes looking out of pumpkin heads.But how did Halloween come about? Who even thought of celebrating Halloween? We will tell you about this in today’s article.

1. Occurrence of the holiday

Halloween hails from Northern France and England, where the Celts lived many centuries ago. They believed that the year is divided in half: summer and winter. When the first day of November arrives, summer is replaced by winter.

The pagans believed that the prince of darkness Samhain imprisoned the Sun God, and time stops.The gates are opened, symbolizing the past and the future, which are guarded by demons and witches. And it is on this day that evil spirits and the souls of the dead descend to earth.

They are allegedly looking for the bodies of living people in order to settle in them and do their dark deeds with their help. No one wanted an unclean person to inhabit him, so the Celts tried to deceive the spirits. They put out all the lights in their homes and put on terrible masks to scare away the evil force. This is what Halloween was all about.

This is where the pagan traditions of masquerade costumes , ​​which inspire terror, came from.Just imagine what it looked like: a family sits in the dark in masks of incomprehensible heroes with lighted candles and waits for evil spirits to knock on the window in order to scare them. It looks at least strange.

On this day, evil spirits descend to earth to search for the bodies of living people in order to do their dark deeds with their help

In the 7th century, the Catholic Church declared November 1 All Hallows Even. Over time, it began to be called Hallowe’en, and in the end the name was transformed into Halloween (Halloween) and became a symbol of the eve of the holiday itself.All that is left of paganism that is connected with evil spirits, such as dressing up as devilish characters or wearing scary masks, but we are modern people and keep up with the times, therefore modern characters are more pleasant and closer in spirit to us than pagan bogeymen , therefore, the Little Mermaid, Avatar, Vampire, Pirate, Musketeer and Mummy replaced the gods of death and horror.

2. The emergence of the holiday in America

Once Columbus brought potatoes, tobacco and syphilis from America, and in due time immigrants from Ireland brought Halloween to America.It was customary for the Irish to dress up in costumes of witches, devils and other evil spirits, to scare each other, to arrange pranks. A kind of symbol of the holiday was a pumpkin with eyes carved in it, which burned with a terrible fire. The burning candle inside the pumpkin was a sign of sinful souls.

3. The history of the “terrible” fruit

Surely you wondered why pumpkin was chosen as a symbol of all vegetables and fruits for the unholy holiday.We dug into history and found out that it is based on an ancient legend about an Irish drunkard named Miser Jack, who tried to outwit the devil. On the eve of All Saints Day, the blacksmith Jack was drinking in the bar, and when the money for ale ran out, the devil appeared on the threshold of the bar, who just at that time could freely move on the ground. Miserly Jack loved the intoxicating drink so much that he was ready to do anything for it.

Therefore, the blacksmith gave his soul to the unclean in exchange for the opportunity to drink ale.The devil immediately turned into a gold coin, for which the blacksmith could buy plenty of ale, but that was not the case, Jack’s greed still took the mountain, and, seeing the gold, the man grabbed the coin and put it in his pocket next to the silver cross. Writhing in agony next to the cross, the devil begged for mercy. Then Jack took from him a promise that he would give him ten more years of a quiet life, which flew by like an instant, and, before giving his promised soul, in his dying request, Jack spoke about the apple, which he had dreamed of eating before his death.

In order not to get lost in the pitch darkness, the devil gave Jack ember from his hellfire, and he put it in his turnip. This is how a vegetable lamp with glowing eyes appeared

The devil agreed to fulfill his last wish and, in order to pick the cherished fruit from the tree, stood on the shoulders of the blacksmith. At this moment, the cunning greedy Jack scrawled a cross on the bark of the apple tree, and the evil spirits were again “arrested”. But when Jack did die, he was forced to come to the devil himself, since he was not taken to heaven due to cooperation with the owner of hell.There was no place for the cunning man in hell either, and the lonely soul had no other option but to wander between the worlds.

In order not to get lost in the pitch darkness, the devil gave Jack a coal from his infernal fire, and he, in order not to burn his hands with it, put it in a hole made of turnip, which was in his pocket. So a vegetable lamp with glowing eyes appeared. And what does the pumpkin have to do with it? The fact is that for the Americans, from whom we inherited Halloween, pumpkin is a more common product than turnip, so the legend is slightly adapted to the realities of the country.So, as you can see, the story of Halloween is a legend and not even one.

4. Birthday cake

Read – Halloween is a feast of horror

In the homeland of Halloween, Irish and British children have another traditional custom that few people know about – the barnbrack fruitcake. Its peculiarity is that during baking, you need to hide some kind of surprise or a note with a prediction for the future in it. In America and Ukraine there is no such tradition, but it is popular to bake thematic cookies in the form of spiders, cats or pumpkins.

5. “Trick or Treats”

At one time, the Celts believed that it was on this day that the souls of deceased ancestors return to earth and walk among the living. People wanted to placate them so that they contribute to a good future harvest. For this, various treats were prepared. When someone knocked on the door, it was imperative to invite the newcomer into the house – to feed and treat.

It was impossible to refuse – suddenly you inadvertently offend a dead soul. Then this tradition acquired a more well-known format – trick-or-treating (translated as “nasty or sweetness”), when children go to neighboring houses and ask for sweets.

6.Halloween & Music

Halloween even has its own acclaimed musical anthem – Danny Elfman’s This Is Halloween, which in 1993 became the soundtrack to the cult cartoon The Nightmare Before Christmas. This composition has become so popular that performers all over the world have sung it.

7.in Ukrainian

In our country, the Irish holiday is more similar to its American prototype, but so far it is not entirely identical.Of course, fancy-dress parties are no longer new to us, but it is unlikely that kids would come to your house and say: “Trick or treat” or “Candy or life”. By the way, if you’ve already been invited to one of the parties, then we have 15 costume ideas. In any case, even if you do not want to cut funny or scary faces in a pumpkin, dress up in a suit, then at least just go to a party and have a good time there.

Halloween is a fun and unusual holiday and now you know what its history is.Happy Halloween!
