Você já se perguntou de onde vem a aracnofobia, ou, por que muitas pessoas tem medo de aracnídeos?

O medo de aranhas é muito comum entre humanos. Em torno de 75% das pessoas têm medo moderado ou severo desses animais. Mas por que essa condição existe?
O pavor de aranhas pode ser condicionado, causado por algum trauma vivido pelo indivíduo com esses animais, ou mesmo por influência cultural, já que muitas culturas associam esses aracnídeos ao terror, como visto em festas de Halloween.

¡Buenos días! Quedó atrás la fiesta de #Halloween, pero nuestros hermanos en México siguen conmemorando el #DiaDeMuertos hoy #2Nov

En 2020 no hay desfiles ni visitas a los principales cementerios. Los mexicanos han recurrido a la creatividad para preservar su tradición

#Hilo
Los pequeños altares callejeros o caseros —con distanciamiento social— son unas de las soluciones que ha conseguido la gente en 2020 para preservar la tradición del #DiaDeMuertos, el feriado más importante de nuestros hermanos mexicanos 🇲🇽

#VenezolanosEnMéxico #2Nov
En todo el mundo, el #DiaDeMuertos nos despierta un sentimiento similar: tomar conciencia de la fragilidad de la vida, recordar a los seres queridos, celebrar que estamos vivos

Hasta el agente 007 ha desfilado junto a una calavera #catrina... pero... ¿qué significa esta palabra?

Today, I am consumed by hatred for #covid19 and sadness for all that we have lost - and will continue to lose - thanks to the combination of a once-in-a-century virus, and governmental incompetence, & rampant disinformation campaigns.

I love #Halloween. It is such a happy, carefree holiday. I have always loved it, but all the more so with kids.

And my kids are at the edge of the age where they want to trick or treat with me.
We normally go out as a huge, joyous, neighborhood group.

The parents and kids go off through the night. It's a moment of pretending all is right with the world. You get to meet your neighbors, knock on doors, be someone you aren't.

Fue hace un par de días.
Con un niño que lloraba hasta que sentimos frío y paz.
El crío miró hacia su derecha.
Su madre se extrañó.
- ¿Qué le habéis puesto?
- Nada - dije.
La enfermera tomó la muestra de sangre y seguimos con nuestro trabajo.
Algo acababa de pasar...
Estuve varios días pensando en lo ocurrido.
María, enfermera, más de treinta años en el servicio, evitaba mis preguntas.
Hasta que al terminar una mañana de asistencia cerró la puerta.
Se sentó delante.
Y comenzó a hablar...
Me contó que el hospital era en inicio un asilo.
Fundado por una marquesa y destinado al cuidado de niños enfermos o sin padres.
Muchos de ellos pasaban la infancia allí.
Algunos regresaron después de dejar sus paredes.

Noche o día de difuntos, Día de todos los Santos, #Halloween 👇
Si hay algo común al Día de difuntos en España es la representación en los teatros de "Don Juan Tenorio". En el s. XIX era una de las representaciones habituales durante los días que abarcaban del 31 de octubre al 2 de noviembre.
"La Vanguardia" (31-X-1881)
Las representaciones podían ser de mañana y noche el mismo día. Como digo, un habitual. #Halloween

Les Témoins de #Jéhovah, vous vous en doutez, ne fêtent pas #Halloween
Il y a quelques années, ils avaient publié un article qui expliquait leur position. #thread ⬇️
D'abord c'est une fête qui serait l'occasion de rentrer en contact avec les esprits
Les gens ne seraient pas au courant des origines païennes d'halloween ?
Et apparemment c'est grave ? 🤔

A #copyright #Halloween Story: I was reading about @internetarchive's project to digitize the Marygrove College #Library collection. About halfway through the article I was horrified to see a copyright myth brought back from the dead!🧛On Halloween!🎃libraryjournal.com/?detailStory=i… /1
The myth from the article is that somehow #fairuse can’t “extend to creating and distributing complete copies of a copyrighted work.” From the #SupremeCourt to the #fairuse statute itself, the fair use doctrine does not have a ban on copying or distributing “the whole thing.” /2
This is a myth that I, and my #copyright colleagues around the country, have been trying to “mythbust” for decades! So let's take shake down this #fairuse skeleton like #VanHelsing! /3

Just in time for Halloween, the story of the voodoo doctor’s murder 😱
Obie Lee Roddie/Roddy, orig fr GA, appears in the Knoxville City Directory 1943-1948. His jobs during that time, incl bellboy at the Farragut Hotel (now our cross street neighbor, @hyattplaceknoxville).
But his death certificate lists a very different occupation & the motive for his death: herb doctor. One of Mr. Roddie’s neighbors, Alberta Jefferson, convinced that she & her husband were hexed, shot him in the face. Police reports say that he would have died almost instantly.
Investigation of Roddie’s home found records of 174 “patients”, both African American & white, accounts paid & owed, & materials for spells & charms. One newspaper article about the murder even includes a “[prescription] for a ‘lady who can’t keep men friends’”. #Halloween

En California hay una casa con más de 150 habitaciones y 5.000 puertas y ventanas. Una casa que creció como crece un trastorno mental y como crece una obsesión.

Y una casa con cien mil fantasmas.

En #LaBrasaTorrijos de #Halloween, la maldición de la Casa Winchester.

HILO 👇
Nuestra historia comienza una noche noviembre de 1881 en una pequeña mansión de New Haven, Connecticut.
En un dormitorio apenas iluminado por un candil de aceite, el medium Adam Coons (también conocido como Koombs) practicaba una sesión de espiritismo junto a la dueña de la casa, una viuda de apenas 42 años.

Are you ready for an early #Halloween story? Turn on your pumpkin lanterns, because the ghosts of our spacecraft past have a story to tell… 💀🛰👻🎃🤖☄️🕯 #RosettaLegacy #TrickOrTreat #MysteryStory
After years of detective work by #Rosetta & #Philae teams, the lander’s “missing” second touchdown site has been identified on #comet #67P, in a location that resembles the shape of a skull! 🔎💀😮 #RosettaLegacy
Full story👉 esa.int/Science_Explor…
Philae left its imprint in billions-of-years-old ice, revealing that the comet’s icy interior is softer than #cappuccino froth or the foam in a bubble bath or on top of waves at the seashore ☕️🛁🌊#RosettaLegacy (photo courtesy @AstroEmz) Image

Dr. Henry again blames large family gatherings for surging numbers and promises “enforcement will be stepped up.”
#bcpoli @NEWS1130
Henry says many new clusters are linked to #Thanksgiving gatherings, so moving forward, she says NO #Halloween parties can happen or cultural and religious events.

HALLOWEEN IN WALES:
A THREAD 🎃👻🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

"All Hallows Eve is by the Welsh called Nos Calan Gaeaf, meaning the first night of winter. It is one of the 'Teir Nos Ysprydnos' - three nights for spirits - upon which ghosts walk and fairies are abroad."

#Wales #Halloween #Ghosts #Folklore Image
I'll be updating this thread daily with snippets of Welsh folklore from various sources (references to follow) as we count down to October 31.
Oh, and for lots more Halloween history, be sure to check out the GHOSTS & FOLKLORE podcast... if you dare! 🎃
markreesonline.com/ghosts-folklor…
"Nos Calan Gaeaf or All Hallows' Eve was a time of much festivity. In the days of old it was attended by many superstitious rites & ceremonies. A huge log was thrown on the fire for heat & light. As a rule, the only illumination was that of the ruddy fire-glow."

.@IndyMayorJoe: local capacity limits & midnight closing order for bars and restaurants will continue. Unlike much of Indiana, Indy #coronavirus numbers aren't rising, but they aren't dropping much either, hovering at or just above 5%. @Marion_Health wants sustained rate below 5.
Hogsett reiterates recommendation, announced previously, to "get creative" with #Halloween celebrations rather than face-to-face #trickortreating.
Hogsett: "One of the great challenges of the #COVID era is putting our neighbors' health ahead of our own comfort. I can't make anyone do that, but I can and will ask."

Sometimes it’s good to get out for a walk; to head to the local woods and beyond; to let the world fall back in time; to come across what one may. A thread.

The woods will contain remembrances. Pay them no heed.

n the fields there will be seven magpies: one for each martyr. Six will be on the ground and one will be in flight. You can never tell anyone your secret. But you already knew that, of course.

2/14 #folkhorror #hauntology #halloween #weird #walk Image
Past the magpies you will see the house, but the house does not welcome visitors. The monument will summon you.

“Boys” said Meave to the boys “will one of yis tie this lucky charm around the foot of that criminal that we hanged earlier”. “You know it is Halloween” replied the boys. “Nera” said Meave “surely you are not scared”. “Of course not” shivered Nera #Halloween
As Nera walked towards the gallows, the demons of the glen screamed. “It’s shocking dark” he thought “but I’m sure everything will be grand” he mused “despite it being Samhain, darkness, horror and death and the door to the otherworld is probably open” #Hallloween
The body of the dead criminal swung limply on the gallows. “He looks horrible and scary” thought Nera. “Howya” said the dead criminal “Jesus Christ” yelped Nera anachronistically “Ya frightened the life outa me” #Halloween
