Considering the fact that I am not anthropology major my interest in the course is just so amazing and impressive to me. I am really happy I chose this course to fulfill my GE units. I started this fieldwork with a question in mind. What is Halloween? As far as I have observed, I have come to a conclusion that Halloween can be said to be generally about ghost and the spirit of the dead. it's a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries amongst certain group of people on the October 31st. the typical festive Halloween activity include trick-or-treating, costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories and watching horror and scary films. Out of the listed typical festive Halloween activities, I participated in quite a good number of them and it was pretty good being the first time for me to observe Halloween and attend Halloween activities. Before I started my Halloween with my family, I had the opportunity to speak to some new people I met concerning the event (Halloween). speaking with them made me see and realize that some people most especially the extremely rich people that are really confused of what to do with money spend so much on Halloween in ways that I couldn't even believe or imagine. People actually......

Pumpkin Genocide

...Pumpkin Genocide Every year around Halloween the act of carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns always seems like a perfect idea, doesn’t it? For you, maybe, but for a pumpkin like me it hits close to home. If you could put yourself into my shoes, (if I could wear shoes) Halloween would be a dreaded time for you and your family. Humans snatching the innocent neighbors, siblings, cousins, or even parents and children of pumpkins from their home to poke holes in them? Horrible. Carving pumpkins is not right; children are taking the lives of pumpkins all over the world for one night of pleasure and most them don’t even know why. Do you know what the Holocaust is? It was a mass killing of all the Jewish people by the Germans in the late 1930’s and it went on for almost a decade. It sounds terrible and horrific, right? Think about all the pumpkins being cut open and placed on front porches for Halloween every year. You’re resembling a nazi murderer every Halloween and do you really want that on your conscience? Pumpkins are being killed for Halloween just because they’re pumpkins; it’s not our fault. It seems like children these days obtain pleasure from poking holes in pumpkins and spilling out our guts just to fill us with a candle. These children are psychotic, arsonistic, crazy, and just disgusting. My family’s guts stuck in your fingers, and you’re laughing? It makes me sick. Kids say, “pumpkins are going to rot and die anyway!” but so are they so why not cut up......

Pumpkins

...Pumpkins Pumpkins are a fruit that belong in the same family as squash and cucumbers. They are grown in six of the seven continents. In the United States the pumpkin is a common symbol in many fall activities and holidays, the most popular of them being Halloween and thanksgiving. October is the month in which the majority of pumpkins are sold. On October 31 children and adults alike use pumpkins to make jack lanterns. These decorations are most commonly in the form of a face represented by the eyes, nose, and mouth. A candle is typically placed inside allowing light to shine through providing the “lantern “effect. Pumpkins are also edible and are used in many recipes. In the colonial times they were used to make pie crusts, but now it is much more common to be used as a filling instead. They were also used by the Indians for medicinal purposes as a first aid for snake bites. Trees Trees are a very symbolic plant. Used as an outline to map ones family history, to being a self sustained ecosystem of its own, the tree has represented many things throughout history. With its roots reaching deep into the ground to provide nutrients for the trunk, branches, and leaves, they are a perfect example of the circle of life. As the leaves wither and die they fall to the ground and begin to decay providing food to be used again by the tree from which they came. This self perpetuating cycle has been around for billions of years and continues today. This phenomenon has...

She lives in Gainesville, Florida, where she teaches at the writing program at the University of Florida. The story ‘Yours’ is all about a married couple, Clark and Alison. Mary Robison managed to create a simple but very touching story about life and death, love and compassion. The story tells about a man and a woman, a married couple, who make jacks-o-lanterns out of pumpkins the night before Halloween. In the story we see that Alison is half younger than her husband. Here Clark is of seventy eighty and Alison is of thirty five years old. There is no indication in story for how long they are married. Clark is a doctor, internist and a Sunday water colorist and Alison works in a children day care center. ‘They were both quite tall and looked something alike in their facial features”. In general logic this very the difference of ages between the two seems illogical but there must be something that tied them in marital relationship. May be this relation occurred out of doctor-patient relationship, maybe he was her doctor. Whatever the causes may be it seems from the story that they love each other and trying to keep other happy by praising one another’s work. From the......

Chinese Lunar Lantern Festival

...Chinese holiday is the Lantern Festival. The Lantern Festival is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in lunar calendar. Actually, Lantern Festival is not a real name in its Chinese meaning, because people can not translate that festival’s name correctly due to different culture and language. My favorite festival is the Lantern Festival because there is much fun in the Lantern Festival. In China, we call the Lantern Festival as “Yuan-Xiao Festival”. The reason why Chinese people made this name is that Chinese people have a special calendar called lunar calendar which is based on cycles of lunar phases, and it’s different from the Gregorian calendar which we use now. Thus, the Chinese character “Yuan month” means the first month in lunar calendar, and “Xiao” means the night. So this is what the festival’s name should really be. There are several versions story about the origin of the Lantern Festival, but no one knows which one is true. The most plausible origin states that the Lantern Festival is from Buddhism, and it began from Han dynasty. The emperor Ming of Han dynasty believed Buddhism, and he knew there was some tradition that Buddhists lighted lanterns to show their respect to Buddha’s relics in every fifteenth of lunar January. So the emperor Ming let people light lanterns in the temples and the palace also. Gradually, this tradition spreads up to now. In ancient times, people made some large lanterns to celebrate the Lantern Festival, and......

The type of pumpkins used for the lanterns are less edible and it’s typically the smaller, sugar pumpkins that are used in cooking. The dried seeds are also a favourite in many dishes.  Squash history Squashes are originally native to Central and South America and pumpkins in particular were one of the staples in the Central American diet. The name pumpkin is derived from the old French word ‘pompion’ meaning ripe or cooked by the sun. Over time, squash cultivation spread across North America, the Native Americans called them ‘askutasquash’ which is where the modern name ‘squash’ originates. Squash was once such an important part of their diet that they buried them along with the dead to provide nourishment on their final journey. The US tradition of eating pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving originates from the kindness shown by Squanto, a native American who taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate squash, saving them from almost certain starvation following their first harsh winter in the New World. Columbus introduced squash to the European court on his return from his travels and today Europe is one of the major squash producers.
