Jack's weddenschappen: Een Keltische sage dat geïnspireerd is op de legende van Jack O' Lantern en het Keltische feest Samhain en Halloween (Dutch Edition)

Een oude Keltische legende vertelt dat er tijdens de nacht van Samhain (het Keltische Nieuwjaar), die toch niet alledaags is, omdat hij niet behoort tot het afgelopen jaar dat net voorbij is en evenmin tot het nieuwe jaar dat nog moet beginnen, men in de nevelen die de wereld van de levenden scheiden van die van de geesten, een man kan ontwaren die ronddwaalt op zoek naar de weg van het paradijs. Hij draagt een lantaarn die bestaat uit een uitgekerfde pompoen waarin zich een brandend kooltje van het vuur van de hel zou bevinden.Die man, dat is Jack! Jack O’ LanternMaar wie was Jack?De enige gewone man aan wie men een feest heeft gewijd dat men inmiddels overal ter wereld viert.Waarom vieren we hem tijdens de nacht van Halloween (dat de tradities en de rituelen van het oude feest van Samhain weer tot leven laat komen)? Bijna niemand kent zijn verhaal: “Vervloekt zijn ze!”, zou Jack zeggen.Andere boeken van Kentauronhttp://smarturl.it/Kentauron
