Halloween!

Halloween! What does it really mean for you all. Here are some interesting beliefs that we would like to share with all of our visitors and readers of our blogs at www.barmontreal.com . Some of the most common beliefs held today are one that it is a Celtic tradition, secondly that Jack-O-Lanterns are meant to light the way for wayward spirits to the beyond and costumes or other scary paraphernalia are used to scare away “evil” spirits. Where most people disagree is in the nature of the worship performed by the Celts. Some believe it was a tribute to the “God” of the dead or underworld called “Samhain”,but pronounced as Sow-wen. Some right wing christians believe that there was human sacrifice involved, and that “treats” were given to buy the favour of the celtic druids, so as not to come to harm.

Others believe that it refers to the celtic new year. The end of the old year fell on what is October 30, and the new year started on November 1. October 31, then, was thought to be a day “in limbo” when the laws of nature and physics were suspended, thus the dead could walk the Earth. On this “limbo” day, people were encouraged to act in a chaotic way, and thus young ruffians wandered the streets causing mischief, or begging for food door to door.

There is also some confusion caused by the fact that the Catholic church celebrates the Feast of All Saints over a three day period which includes October 31. The word Halloween is a contraction of All Hallows Eve, a holy night which fell before All Saints Day.

No matter where you stand, but if you are out there to party then be ready because Bar Montreal is just about to reveal you some of the venues that will make your night go even crazier. Here are some of the clubs, bars, restaurants  that I strongly recommend to you guys to try-out over the week-end.
