I hope you’ve enjoyed my History of Halloween Series so far! We touched on jack o’ lanterns first, then broomsticks. Today, we’re discussing the Samhain superstitions behind black cats.

That said, you’ll want to look into their history to understand their intertwining with the dark celebration of Halloween. Read on.
