World Teacher’s Day
World Teachers’ Day is a day of celebration where various events are held to honor those who practice the teaching profession. In many countries since 1994, the 5th of October has been celebrated every year as the Teachers’ Day, on the recommendation of UNESCO. October 5th is the anniversary of the ‘‘Intergovernmental Special Conference on the Status of Teachers’’ held in 1996 in Paris, thereby the unanimous acceptance of the ‘‘Teachers’ Status Recommendation’’ by UNESCO representatives and ILO. Different dates are specified as Teachers’ Day in various countries according to their own cultural and historical characteristics, and school holidays.
The date of October 12, 1492, has a very important place in Western history because it is the day when the explorer Christopher Columbus ended his journey from one end of the Atlantic Ocean to the other and set foot onto ‘New World’. (In 1971, the US Congress decided to celebrate Columbus Day on the second Monday of October)
The place where Christopher Columbus set foot on the 12th day of October 1492 is actually the island he calls ‘San Salvador’, which is part of the Bahamas in present. Columbus, thinking that he had discovered a new route to India, referred to the people he encountered as “Indians”. However, this historical discovery was the beginning of the exploration and colonization of the American continent by the Europeans.
Halloween, celebrated every year on October 31st, has become a secular celebration today, although it has primarily Pagan and later Christian origins. It is a holiday where children go door to door collecting candy and pocket money, often wearing scary costumes.
Other Halloween celebrations include masquerade balls, pumpkin carving, horror movie sessions, and trips to homes believed to be haunted. This holiday is called Halloween in the Anglo-Saxon world and mainly Western countries. This word is shortened from the concept of All Hallow’s Eve.
Halloween has its origins in the Samhain Festival celebrated by pagan Celts in ancient Britain, they considered November 1 the end of summer and the beginning of winter. The origin of the word Samhain is based on the Old Irish words sam (summer) and fuin (end). At this time, the herds were returning from the plateaus, land lease agreements between landlords and farmers were renewed. The end of summer was also a divine period in the Celts where marriages took place and the dead were blessed.
On this day, it was believed that the souls of the dead visit the homes where they lived in the past, thus, great fires were lit above the hills to ignite the hearths in the houses and at the same time keep the evil spirits away. People wore masks and costumes in order not to be recognized by the spirits they believed wandered around. Because of these traditions, the Samhain festival gradually became identified with witches, goblins, fairies, and demons.
When the Romans conquered the Celtic lands in the 1st century, they combined Samhain with their own death festival Feralia and harvest festival Pomona. In the 7th century, Holy father IV. Boniface moved Saints’ Day which was celebrated on May 13th, to November 1 — possibly to replace the pagan festival. The All Hallow’s Eve Day (October 31) was considered sacred, and this is where the name Halloween in Western languages came from.
