Everything You Need For The Ultimate Halloween Party: Halloween Mythology
Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween

Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween

Halloween has spread around the world, yet its associations with death and the supernatural as well as its inevitable commercialization have made it one of our most puzzling holidays. How did it become what it is today?Trick or Treat is the first book both to examine the origins and history of Halloween and to explore in depth its current global popularity. Festivals like the Celtic Samhain and Catholic All Souls’ Day have blended to produce the modern Halloween, which has been reborn with new customs in America—but there are also related but independent holidays, especially Mexico’s Day of the Dead. Lisa Morton lifts the cobwebs off everything from the explosion in popularity of haunted attractions to the impact of events like the global economic recession, as well as the effect Halloween has had on popular culture through literary works, films, and television series. Taking us on a journey from the spectacular to the macabre, this book is a treat for anyone who wants to peep behind the mask to see the real past and present of this ever more popular holiday.... more

Trick or Treat: Hallowe'en, Masks, and Living Your Myth (E-Singles)

"The make-believe, the play, the humor, the delight is the mythological perspective on life. In the Hindu tradition, the world is said to be “God’s play,” “God’s dance.” When one plays life that way, on e in a way awakes creative vital energies in oneself that otherwise are not available. Watch a youngster going down the street. He may be galloping as though he were a horse. If he were just walking, he might be a little bored. The galloping brings up life energy." — Joseph CampbellIn this previously unreleased piece, Joseph Campbell expires the mythic roots of Halloween, exploring the power of masks and symbols, and looking at just what it means to play a role and live in a myth. Based on two talks delivered during his final years as a lecturer, "Trick or Treat" shows Campbell at his most whimsical and most serious, discussing a favorite topic: the myths we live by.... more

A Halloween Reader: Poems, Stories, And Plays From Halloweens Past

A Halloween Reader: Poems, Stories, And Plays From Halloweens Past

Wondering how to entertain guests at your Halloween party this year? Why not recite a poem, tell a story, or present a parlor drama? A Halloween Reader is sure to add excitement to the celebration.This sourcebook of Halloween lore spans British, Irish, and American literature from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, from Robert Burns and Edgar Allan Poe to James Joyce and H. P. Lovecraft. Each of the poems, stories, and plays in this comprehensive anthology provides a link to Halloween celebrations of the past. "A Halloween Party," by Caroline Ticknor, is a humorous short story about a nineteenth-century New Yorker's first Halloween party. The macabre soliloquy from Sydney Dobell's Balder paints a dark, haunting picture of the hallowed eve. Robert Burns' "Halloween" gives a detailed description of the night of October 31 in eighteenth-century southwestern Scotland. The "Hallowoddities" section of the book includes witch-trial testimony, journal entries, and other spooky pieces related to Halloween. A Halloween Reader provides an overview of the holiday's roots and of how it has changed since it began in the British Isles more than one thousand years ago. In older literature, the dead are viewed as a supernatural evil, but one that can teach, predict, and warn, because they have seen the future that is hidden to us. In twentieth-century and current literature, however, the dead are portrayed as more humanly evil, returning as zombies to exact revenge or to otherwise terrorize the living. As Ms. Bannatyne says in her introduction, "The boundary between the vibrant world we live in and the underground world of worms is thin and brittle; it's only a matter of time. What makes the older Halloween literature so enthralling is that it lets us travel back and forth to the land of the dead without consequence."... more

The Book of Halloween (Paperback)

The Book of Halloween (Paperback)

The Book of Halloween (1919) gives the reader an account of the origin and history of Halloween and how it absorbed customs belonging to other days in the year, such as May Day, Midsummer, and Christmas.Author Ruth Edna Kelly intensely researched the subject blending history, folklore and mythology. The origins of Halloween are traced back to sun worship, Celtic religion, the Pomona festival and the Christian All Saints Day. Links are given with Teutonic witchcraft and Walpurgis Night. Special Halloween omens are discussed as well as the different ways this holiday was celebrated in Ireland, England and Man, Brittany and France, Scotland and the Hebrides, Wales and America.The time in which she produced this book was a special one in history, as it was in the early twentieth century and the classic picture of the witch as an old ugly hag, underwent a transformation in the midst of the rise of feminism.
