Halloween 万圣节

One story about Halloween is that Jack, an Irishman, who was not allowed into heaven because he was stingy with his money,  was sent to Hell. But down there he played tricks on the Devil (Satan), so he was kicked out of Hell and made to walk the earth forever carrying a lantern.
  Well, Irish children made Jack’s lanterns on October 31st from a large potato or turnip, hollowed out with the sides having holes and lit by little candles inside. And Irish children would carry them as they went from house to house begging for food for the village Halloween festival that honored the Druid  abbreviate god Muck Olla. The Irish name for these lanterns was “Jack with the lantern” or “Jack of the lantern” abbreviated as “Jack-o’-lantern” and now spelled “jack-o-lantern”.
  The traditional Halloween you can read about in most books was just children’s fun night. Halloween celebrations would start in October in every elementary-school.
  Children would make Halloween decorations, all kinds of orange-paper jack-o-lanterns. And from black paper you’d cut “scary” designs — an evil witch with a pointed hat riding through the sky on a broomstick, maybe with black bats flying across the moon, and that meant bad luck. And of course black cats for more bad luck. Sometimes a black cat would ride away into the sky on the back of the witch’s broom.
  And on Halloween night we’d dress up in Mom or Dad’s old shoes and clothes, put on a mask, and be ready to go outside. The little kids (children younger than we were) had to go with thEir mother,but we older ones went together to neighbors’ houses, ringing their doorbell and yelling, “Trick or treat!” meaning, “Give us a treat (something to eat)本文由论文联盟http://www.LWlM.cOm收集整理 or we’ll play a trick on you!” The people inside were supposed to come to the door and comment on our costumes.
  “Oh! here’s a ghost. Oh, there’s a witch.Oh,here’s an old lady.”
  Sometimes they would play along with us and pretend to be scared by some ghost or witch. But they would always have some candy and maybe an apple to put in our “Trick or treat bags”.But what if no one come to the door, or if someone chased us away? Then we’d play a trick on them, usually taking a piece of soap and make marks on their windows. And afterwards we would go home and count who got the most candy.
  One popular teenagers’ Halloween trick was to unroll a roll of toilet paper and throw it high into a tree again and again until the tree was all wrapped in the white paper. The paper would often stay in the tree for weeks until a heavy snow or rain washed it off. No real harm done, but it made a big mess of both the tree and the yard under it. One kind of Halloween mischief.
  关于万圣节有这样一个故事。是说有一个叫杰克的爱尔兰人,因为他对钱特别吝啬,就不被允许进入天堂,而被打入地狱。但是在那里他老是捉弄魔鬼撒旦,所以又被踢出地狱,被惩罚提着灯笼永远在人世行走。
  在 10月 31日爱尔兰的孩子们用土豆或萝卜制作杰克的灯笼。他们把中间挖空并在里边点上蜡烛。为了村里庆祝督伊德神的万圣节仪式,孩子们提着这种灯笼挨家挨户乞讨食物。这些灯笼的爱尔兰名字是“拿灯笼的杰克”或者“杰克的灯笼”,缩写为Jack-o’-lantern,现在拼写为jack-o-lantern。
  现在你在大多数书里读到的万圣节只是孩子们的开心夜晚。在小学里,万圣节是每年十月份开始庆祝的。
  孩子们会制作万圣节的装饰品:各种各样桔黄色的南瓜灯。用黑色的纸做一个可怕的造型——一个骑在扫帚把上戴着尖尖帽子的女巫飞过天空,或者是黑蝙蝠飞过月亮。这些都代表厄运。当然黑猫代表运气更差。有时候会出现黑猫骑在女巫扫帚后面飞向天空的造型。
  在万圣节的晚上,我们会穿着爸爸妈妈的旧衣服和旧鞋子,戴上面具,准备外出。比我们小的孩子必须和他们的母亲一块出去,我们大一点的就一起跑到邻居家,按他们的门铃并大声喊道:“恶作剧还是招待”,意思是给我们吃的,要不我们就捉弄你。里边的人们应该会出来评价我们的装扮。
  “哦!这是鬼,那是女巫,这是个老太婆。”
  有时候他们会跟我们一起玩,假装被鬼或者女巫吓着了。但是他们通常会带一些糖果或者苹果放进我们的“恶作剧还是招待”的口袋里。可是要是没人应答门铃或者是有人把我们赶开该怎么办呢?那么我们就会捉弄他们,通常是拿一块肥皂把他们的窗户涂得乱七八糟。然后我们回家,数数谁得的糖最多。
  还有一个典型的万圣节花招是把一卷手纸拉开,不停地往树上扔,直到树全被白纸裹起来。除非下大雪或大雨把纸冲掉,纸会一直呆在树上。这并不造成真正的伤害,只是把树和院子弄得一团糟,一种万圣节的恶作剧。
