How to make a pumpkin lamp with your own hands.

Despite the fact that the Russian people have a bunchhis holidays and traditions, he also does not shy away from strangers. Such a famous international holiday, like Halloween, was no exception. This harmless, at first glance, celebration came from the ancient rituals and holidays. In the seventh century, the 13th May was celebrated as the night of all Saints, which was dedicated to the memory of all martyrs who died. From the very beginning, this day was the unification of the traditions of several Celtic celebrations, which were dedicated to the elements of fire, the power of darkness, summer and winter periods. But after many years, the traditions turned into more Christian, and the holiday moved to the night from October 31 to November 1. In the celebration of Halloween, only pagan attributes are observed today: spiders, cats, witches, brooms, disguises, etc. And the main colors of Halloween are orange and black, which always corresponded to the ancient concepts of death and the harvest of ancient idolaters. Our people do not give this celebration such significance as it does in the states. And instead of the main traditions: visiting neighbors' houses, distributing sweets, etc., our young generation celebrates this holiday in a rather simplified form. Everything is limited to the usual masquerade and is reduced only to disguises in creepy costumes. One of the main attributes of this intriguing holiday is the pumpkin with, located inside, candles. There are a lot of versions concerning its origin: protection from evil, stray souls, etc. But the most interesting is the legend of Jack, who tried to outwit the Devil and twice received his assurance of immovability. But soon he died without taking advantage of his privileges. But Jack could not get to death after death, either in hell or in paradise. Since then, his spirit wanders around the world, lighting up his hard way with a small piece of charcoal, which he inherited from the Devil. Jack put his smoking coal into an empty pumpkin and started to wander around the world. How to make a lamp from a pumpkin with their own hands ..
