You may or may not know but the festival of Halloween is originally celtic. Long ago the Celts celebrated new year, known as “Samhain” at this time of year. It was a time was the dead came from their graves and walked among the living. This tradition carried on into to the present day and recent past. We bringing this back to life at The Wild Rover Irish Pub, at our exclusive Halloween Party Barcelona 2018.
In Ireland and other parts of the world people dress up as ghosts, ghouls and the undead to be able to pass unnoticed among the spirits. Hence the tradition of trick of treat. People dress up as their favourite Halloween character and pass from house to house, imitating the dead’s search for a new resting place. If a treat is not given by the resedents of the house then a trick will be played on them. At The Wild Rover Irish Pub Barcelona we’re all over that.
This year at our Halloween Party Barcelona 2018 we’re offering special prizes for the best Halloween costume.
In the recent past people would light candles and leave them in the window to make ward off the roaming dead. In a round about way the story of Jack O’ Lantern springs from this tradition. Jack was a rogue and gambler and when he died he went straight to hell, but he tricked the devil and broke free. The devil caught up with him and made a wager, Jack lost. In return Jack lost his head and had to wander for eternity looking for a fresh head to find. To Commemorate this story the Irish would carve heads from turnips and put candles inside to make lamps. When Irish immigrants arrived in the United States, they found a better vegetable to make lamps from, the larger and more co0lourful pumpkin. And so one of the most famous present day symbols of Halloween is the carved pumpkin lamp, otherwise known as the Jack O’ Lantern.

Irish stories are full of ghosts, ne’er to do fairies and general evil spirits. One of which is the Banshee (Org. Gaeilic: Bean Sí). All Irish people remember such stories from their youth. The Banshee is an evil female spirit whose cry, when heard, signals the death of somebody close. Irish children are warned never to pick up lost objects from the street, in case they belong to the Banshee, and she may come back to claim it, fulfilling her terrible curse. Here at our Halloween Party Barcelona 2018 in The Wild Rover Irish Pub you’ll laugh before you cry, this we guarantee, and if you hear the Banshee she’ll be wailing “Drink more, drink more!”
