DAY OF THE DEAD

“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” took place in late Autumn, which has made it a popular Halloween tale. Further linking Irving’s legend with Halloween is the fact that the head of the Horseman, which was carried “before him on the pommel of his saddle,” was discovered at the end to be a pumpkin. Irving’s legend was really a parody of the Puritans’ condemnation of the witchcraft that was on the rise in New England during that era. The theme of Halloween as well as the name of that haunted region —“Sleepy Hollow”— imply that the wicked dead are not really dead, but in a transitory state of slumber from which they occasionally awake to haunt the living. “Sleepy Hollow” is, in fact, a veiled reference to the “Hollow Earth” theory which occultists prefer to the doctrine of Hell, i.e. that the center of the Earth is hollow and a Paradise where the sleeping gods, a race of Supermen, wait to be resurrected. [See: Heeding Bible Prophecy: The Abyss/Hell (Hollow Earth/Hades)

According to Genesis 7:1, the Great Flood began on the 17th day of the 2nd month of the Old Testament calendar, which is the end of October or beginning of November on the Gregorian calendar. This date falls precisely on All Hallow’s Eve which is the pagan celebration of the “Day of the Dead.” Halloween is the counterpart of the Druidic Feast of Samhain in honor of the “Lord of the Dead,” which ushered in the Celtic new year, and was the occasion of giving thanks to the Sun god for the harvest. in actual fact, however, Halloween and the two days which follow, the Feasts of All Saints and All Souls, are ancient commemorations of the wicked souls who died in the Great Flood. (See: The Great Flood and Halloween) Jack-o-lanterns, which look like severed heads, represent the dead souls of the pre-flood civilization returning to earth from their watery grave.
