The mysterious black cat is often used to decorate a lot on Halloween. Do you know why?
In the Middle Ages, when witch hunting was a “trendy business”, with just a little “out of character”, you could be convicted of “heresy” and executed immediately. Elderly, solitary women are often unjustly accused of witchcraft. And their pets – often black cats – also began to suffer from there.
At this time, it is believed that black cats are the incarnations of Satan. And to this day, black cats are still a symbol of bad luck in many parts of the world.
