Over the centuries, Halloween transitioned from a pagan ritual to a day of parties, costumes, jack-o-lanterns and sweet treats for kids and adults.
There were ugly clashes between Sunderland and Celtic football fans prior to their pre-season friendly match yesterday, including outside a shop where Tommy Robinson was signing books in a Rangers shirt.
Assistant Chief Constable Helen Mc Millan said: 'Unfortunately we did have some incidents of disorder in and around Sunderland between Sunderland and Celtic fans and while police dealt with them quickly, it is a shame these type of incidents happen at all.'Sunderland were beaten by Celtic 5-0.
Norway is usually associated with fish, oil, fjords and high pensions, as well as with Vikings, trolls and other legendary creatures. One Norwegian writer described his compatriots as “stubborn people by nature who want world peace and appreciate their own freedom”.
Halloween evolved from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, but Halloween today is less about the fear of ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy.
The Celts, who used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, also believed that the change of seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead.
Police dogs and horses were used by officers who lined the streets to try and separate the riots taking place before the friendly match, to mark 20 years since the stadium first opened.However, women in Norway were not allowed categorically to go about male business and bear arms. By the way, today Norwegians claim that the nature of the Vikings’ wives was more abrupt than their spouses’ one.Vikings realized their bloody campaigns to escape from domestic tyranny.For example, a woman could demand a divorce if her husband was caught slovenly dressed ( the question of torn skin).At the time, clothes were to protect not only from the cold, but also from evil forces.
