Lịch sử và ý nghĩa lễ hội Hallloween

Bản thân từ “Halloween” có xuất xứ từ Thiên Chúa Giáo, đó là từ kết hợp của hai từ Hallows Eve (ngày lễ thánh hóa hay còn gọi là ngày lễ các thánh) diễn ra vào ngày đầu tiên của tháng 11, tháng cầu cho các linh hồn đã qua đời. Nhưng cũng có tài liệu cho rằng ngay từ thế kỷ 5 trước công nguyên người Celtic ở Ai-len đã kỷ niệm ngày này vào ngày 31/10, tức là ngày cuối cùng của mùa hè như là một nghi lễ mừng năm mới.

Lễ hội ma Halloween và những điều bạn chưa biết

Biểu tượng của ngày lễ Halloween là những trái bí ngô được khoét theo những khuôn mặt tưởng tượng.

Chuyện kể lại rằng, vào ngày đó những người đã chết sẽ quay về nhân gian tìm một cơ thể và nhập vào để được đầu thai vào năm sau. Đó là cách duy nhất để các linh hồn đó có thể được tái sinh. Người Celtic tin rằng ngày đó chính là ngày âm dương giao hòa, kẻ chết và người sống có thể tiếp xúc với nhau. Dĩ nhiên người sống không bao giờ muốn cơ thể của mình bị các linh hồn “cướp” mất, vì thế vào tối 30/10 tất cả các làng mạc đều dập tắt lửa và mặc những trang phục cực kỳ ghê tởm và diễu hành ầm ĩ khắp xóm để xua đuổi các linh hồn đến tìm kiếm thân xác để nhập vào.

Có một tài liệu khác cho rằng sở dĩ người Celtic dập tắt lửa nhà mình là để đến hôm sau tất cả cư dân cùng thắp sáng nhà mình bằng cùng một ngọn lửa được lấy từ trung tâm vùng Ai-len. Và cơ thể những người bị các linh hồn nhập vào sẽ bị trói vào cọc và đốt để cảnh cáo và cũng là để xua đuổi các linh hồn muốn tái sinh. Nhưng càng về sau này người ta càng tin rằng đó chỉ là những truyền thuyết mà thôi.

Ngày lễ Halloween sau đó đã du nhập sang rất nhiều nước khác nhau, nhưng mỗi nước đều biến tấu nó đi để ngày lễ Halloween là của mình. Đầu tiên phải kể đến người Roman, ngay từ những thế kỷ đầu tiên sau công nguyên, người Ý xa xưa đã dùng ngày cuối tháng 10 này để tưởng nhớ nữ thần Pomona, nữ thần trái cây của họ. Biểu tượng của nữ thần Pomona là trái táo, điều này giải thích cho trò đớp những trái táo trong ngày Halloween hiện nay.

Truyền Thuyết Về Halloween

Theo truyền thuyết của nước Ái Nhĩ Lan (Ireland) thì từ ngữ “Jack-ó-lanterns” đến từ một người có tên là Jack. Jack là một chàng thiếu niên đã chết nhưng linh hồn không được phép vào Thiên Đàng vì lý do: lúc sống, anh ta vốn là một người tham lam, bủn xỉn, thường cất giấu tiền bạc, keo kiệt không hề bố thí cho ai một chút gì. Thế nhưng anh ta lại cũng không thể vào Địa Ngục vì lúc còn sống anh ta đã từng chơi đùa với ma quỷ, nên quỷ không bắt anh.

Chuyện kể rằng: một hôm có con quỷ đến quấy phá một vùng dân cư, chẳng may bị báo động, người ta đến cầu cứu các vị tu sĩ đem các vật thánh đến “yểm” và “khóa các cửa” ra vào. Thế là con quỷ bị bắt… Jack đã nhận ra đó là con quỷ thường vui đùa với mình và Jack đã tìm cách gỡ vật “yểm ma quỷ” mở đường cho quỷ chạy thoát.

Để đền ơn cứu mạng, quỷ hứa với Jack là sẽ không bắt hồn Jack về Địa Ngục. Do đó, khi Jack chết vì một tai nạn, hồn Jack bị Thiên Đường từ chối. Jack liền tìm đến Địa Ngục, nhưng quỷ không cho vào… vì lời hứa trước. Thấy Jack lạnh lùng khổ sở, quỷ bèn lấy một ít than hồng ở Địa Ngục bỏ vào trong ruột một quả bí ngô và đưa cho Jack để sưởi ấm… trên đường trở lại trần gian. Để cho không khí thông vào nuôi lửa, Jack phải đục thủng quả bí ngô.. và ánh lửa từ trong đã chiếu ra soi sáng nẻo đường lang thang của Jack. Có lẽ Jack phải cầm đèn đi lang thang trên mặt đất cho đến ngày phán xét cuối cùng của nhân loại.

Các tập tục trong ngày Halloween

“Trick Or Treat” Đây là sinh hoạt chính của hầu hết trẻ em và thiếu niên tại Hoa Kỳ trong đêm Halloween.

Lễ hội ma Halloween và những điều bạn chưa biết

“Trick” nguyên nghĩa là: đánh lừa, trò chơi tinh ma nghịch ngợm: “Treat” là tiếp đón, đối xử tử tế, tiếp đãi. Các em nhỏ và thiếu niên, thanh niên hóa trang với áo quần và mặt nạ hình ma quỷ, rồi cầm lồng đèn đi từ nhà này sang nhà khác trong xóm, gõ cửa và nói “trick or treat”. Câu này có nghĩa là: “Nếu muốn chúng tôi không chơi xấu thì hãy đãi chúng tôi cái gì đi”. Thông thường những người láng giềng luôn luôn muốn tránh việc “trick” nghĩa là chơi đòn đánh lừa nên thường tiếp đón (treat) chúng bằng kẹo và trái cây (theo tục lệ có nhét đồng tiền ở bên trong).

Ý nghĩa giáo dục của ngày Halloween

Hành động và cuộc đời của Jack đã trở thành những kinh nghiệm để tuổi trẻ rút ra một bài học làm người, đó là:

  • Sống không nên tham lam, bủn xỉn, keo kiệt
  • Phải có lòng bác ái, từ bi, biết giúp đỡ kẻ khó khăn

Không nên chơi đùa với ma quỷ. Ma quỷ hiểu theo nghĩa bóng là những trò lừa lọc, đe dọa, làm cho người khác sợ hãi, những việc làm tinh quái do trí thông minh và tưởng tượng của tuổi trẻ sáng tạo ra có khi làm hại đến người, đến xã hội… Chơi đùa, giao du với ma quỷ sẽ dễ bị cám dỗ đi vào đường tối tăm và tội lỗi.

Tuy nhiên, chuyện anh chàng Jack trong đêm Halloween cũng ghi nhận một thái độ sòng phẳng của quỷ, đó là “ân đền, oán trả” và “giữ lời hứa”. Dù rằng sự “giữ lời hứa” này đã làm cho Jack rơi vào thân phận cô hồn lang thang vất vưởng.

Đối với các xã hội Âu, Mỹ Halloween đã trở thành lễ hội vui chơi hằng năm cho trẻ em và cả người lớn. Ít người quan tâm tìm hiểu ý nghĩa nhân bản của nó.

Ý nghĩa nhân bản

Nếu đào sâu hơn, có lẽ sẽ tìm thấy tính cách nhân bản trong câu chuyện. Thử đặt câu hỏi: tại sao dưới ánh sáng khoa học và kỹ thuật mà các nước Âu, Mỹ vẫn dành một ngày lễ hội cho người của “cõi Âm” mà đại diện là chàng Jack?

Jack là nhân vật tưởng tượng nhưng đã thực sự hiện thân trong cuộc đời, trong thân phận làm người… mà lại là một người cô đơn. Khi chết, Jack trở thành cô hồn, không chỗ dung thân… Thiên Đàng và Địa Ngục đều từ chối!

Truyền thống lễ hội Âu Mỹ đã dành cho Jack một ngày. Một ngày được trở lại với cõi dương. Trong ngày đó, Jack có thể sống vui chơi thoải mái, vì người sống đã hóa trang thành ma quỷ để linh hồn Jack có chỗ trà trộn vào cho đỡ cô đơn. Đây là ý nghĩa nhân bản của lễ hội Halloween.

Với ý nghĩa nhân bản này, ngày lễ Halloween và Rằm tháng Bảy Âm lịch của nước ta có thể xem như là ngày hai cõi Âm, Dương hội ngộ trong niềm thương cảm bao la.
