Halloween Superstitions

cauldron

In researching Halloween's history, we find a delightful compendium of superstitions associated with either the harvest season in general or with Halloween in particular:

  • All souls in Purgatory are released for 48 hours from All Hallows Eve. On these nights they are free (Gaelic).
  • Children born on Halloween will enjoy lifelong protection against evil spirits and will be endowed with the gift of second sight (rural America).
  • Do not go hunting on Halloween Eve, as you may wound a wandering spirit (England).
  • On Halloween Eve, do not look at your shadow in the moonlight, or you shall be next to haunt a graveyard (England).
  • If you hear footsteps following you on Halloween, you should not look around, for it is the dead who are following, and if you meet their gaze, you will die (Ireland).
