The black cat is the most representative animal for this holiday because it is considered the companion of the witches.
The legends about the black cat begin in medieval times.
In the Middle Ages, in fact, people moved with carriages and at dusk, the horses were often frightened at the sight of the bright eyes of the black cats.
From this spread the belief that they were possessed by the devil.
Later the black cat was associated with witchcraft and black magic.

CURIOSITIES ON HALLOWEEN
The word Halloween derives from the English “All Allows Eve” translated means the eve of All Saints’ Day.
The origin of the Halloween festival derives from a Celtic festival: the Sambaing or the Celtic New Year.
During the day of Sambaing, the Celts believed that the spirits of the dead could return to earth from beyond. The celebration, therefore, melted together with the fear of death at the party for the end of the old year.
