More “Halloweeny” and that could be a black cat? Those dark, cunning animals have always been a part of the dark side. They will hunt for witches in the dark ages. Old, poor women are usually called, are being witches and their pets, cats were associated with evil as well. They believe that black cats were witches by the devil. The devil will take the form of a black cat, it was rumored that he will meet witches. Nowadays, the Black Cats and used as a staple decoration around a house on Halloween.
2. Jack -O’- Lanterns
A favorite children’s activities on Halloween is a wonderful story of this ancient rite of carving pumpkins with scary faces. It is believed that Jack will play a joke on a drunken farmer named Satan. With these tricks was to enter Paradise who left to wander in the darkness of that stopped him from Hell. He then used some hot embers from a carved turnip and hell, the devil gave him, and made a lantern to guide his soul. Jack -O’- lantern out of a home and a way to basically guide the dead back home. Actually, when the Irish used turnips were, but they fled to the United States, the tradition was changed to pumpkins because turnips were rare.
Bats have always been associated with evil and the dark side for hundreds of years. Down the spine of many people before the very eyes of a vampire sends a shiver.

Folklore was spotted spider on a good night, I was watching a dead family member.

6. The Cauldron
This is an object we have all seen in witch movies and is some cartoons as well. The witches stand over the cauldron, mixing in different ingredients like lizard toes, frog’s legs and mermaid tears to create some ungodly potion. But these cauldrons were originally seen as the womb of mother Earth. The souls of all the dead were collected in this “womb” and waited to either pass on or get reborn as newer souls get added.The cauldron can be seen outside many homes as a decoration during Halloween. Some parties even have a cauldron and use it as a bowl for serving snacks or punch.

Elderly poor women as they walk around with sticks as he could not afford horses. It was occasionally changed with broom sticks. They lived in the woods because of women’s poverty. Some nights, a balm for these women is due to give his heart beat faster, I will cover myself, will give them a sense of confusion and apathy. This medicine hallucigenic them feel like they were flying through the forest.

In fact, it was at its weakest on Halloween partition between the world of the dead and believe our world. This would allow spirits to enter our world in the form of beggars. These spirits visit homes and ask for money or food, and they were denied to their spirits will curse residents at home. Another belief is that spirits would mistake them develop their own demons and they will be left alone.
