Door wreath for Halloween in 10+ DIY decorating ideas to borrow
Halloween is a party to scare yourself and eat candy, but not only! It is also an ideal opportunity to give your little ones the desire to read and to discover. So, just before letting you dive into the heart of our creative workshop, let's take a look at the origins of this pagan festival! Did you know this is a celebration dedicated to the vile Jack-o'-Lantern? A stingy, drunken, wicked and egotistical character from Irish culture, whose story explains the appearance of the unmissable Halloween pumpkin.
Small return on the famous legend of Halloween
The most famous legend has it that once in Ireland there lived a man called Jack who was very stingy and very mean. One day he had drunk a lot of beer and he met the devil who wanted to send him to hell. To save himself, Jack invited him for a drink. Satan accepted. After a few drinks, Jack realized he had run out of money. The devil then changed into a gold coin. As soon as he saw the beautiful gold coin, Jack picked it up and put it in his pocket near a cross. He ends up delivering Satan, on the condition that he leave him alone for a year. After a year, the devil again showed up to collect Jack's soul. This time, Jack asked her for an apple to quench his hunger. Satan forced himself and turned into a tree. Jack took the opportunity to carve 4 crosses in the bark of the tree to prevent him from coming down. Jack offered Satan his freedom on the condition that he did not go to hell. The Devil agreed and Jack continued his existence quietly.
After his death, Jack went to hell where the Devil was happy to refuse him entry following the agreement they had made. Jack had nowhere to go. His last possibility was to wander between worlds, in the dark. Satan granted him one last wish: a small piece of coal to easily find his way. Jack hollowed out the turnip he had carried with him so he could place the coal inside. From there, Jack strolled between the lightening worlds with his turnip without being able to rest in peace. Everyone makes lanterns for Halloween these days, except the turnip was quickly replaced by a pumpkin. A scary decor element without which October 31st is simply unthinkable, the pumpkin very naturally finds its place in our article today. Demonstration!
