Halloween Paper

Halloween is a holiday that is intrinsically linked with Death. With it’s roots tied into
All Saints Day and Samhain, Halloween is wrapped up in death. However where All Saints
Day and Samhain were serious events in culture, Halloween is a playful jab at Death.
Nowhere is that more evident, then in the concept of the Haunted House. Death is not
celebrated or embraced in this Halloween tradition, but rather it is used as a thrill,
something to make life more exciting.

As a child, I remember vividly the Haunted houses that the schools put up, and going to
Knott’s Scary Farm. A menagerie of dismembered bodies and monsters which would hide and
jump out at you in an attempt to frighten you and get that adrenaline flowing. When
examining this ritual of Halloween, it is apparent how far Halloween has changed, not just
from Samhain and All Saints Day, but from the 1950’s. The main theme of 1950’s Halloween,
was one of fun and enjoyment. The Main theme of the haunted House, is fear and disgust.
