bad-hair day (W3)

(E3)(L?) http://www.owad.de/owad-archive-quiz.php4?id=1430
Ein Hersteller von Shampoo will herausgefunden haben, dass es es Korrelationen gibt zwischen einem "Tag, an dem alles schief geht" und dem Zustand der Haare des Pechvogels.

Der Ursprung der englischen Redewendung geht laut William Safire zurück auf den Komiker Gary Shandling zu dessen Standards (1991) die Frage gehörte: "Is my hair all right?".
Im Jahr 1995 erhob der Fernsehjournalist Jane Pauley den Anspruch, diese Redewendung bereits bereits um 1970 geprägt zu haben.

Calends (W2)

(E1)(L1) http://www.worldwidewords.org/articles/calendar.htm

"Calends" was the first day of the old Roman month. The days were counted backwards from the calends to the ides.

A calendar was an accounting book where the calends was the first day of the month. Most likely from "calare" = "to proclaim". In the early days it was a register, especially for canonized saints.

Halloween (W2)

Ein heidnisches Fest kehrt über die USA nach Europa zurück

Das Wort "Halloween" geht auf "hallows' eve" ("Vorabend von Allerheiligen") zurück, und das Fest wird dementsprechend am 31. Oktober gefeiert. Ursprünglich begingen an diesem Tag die Kelten und Angelsachsen das Ende des Sommers bzw. den Anfang des Winters, der mit dem Beginn des neuen Jahres zusammenfiel. Es war das Fest des Totengottes Samhain, der nun nach dem Sonnengott die Herrschaft übernahm. Nach keltischem Glauben wurde am Abend von Samhain den Seelen der im Vorjahr Verstorbenen eine kurze Rückkehr nach Hause erlaubt. Da der Sage nach an diesem Abend viele Geister, Hexen, Kobolde und Dämonen umherschweiften, beging man die Feier zum großen Teil mit Feuern, die die bösen Wesen vertreiben, und mit Opfern, die sie besänftigen sollten. Außerdem maskierte man sich zu diesem Zweck.

Im Jahre 837 ordnete Papst Gregor IV. an, dass am 1. November das Allerheiligenfest gefeiert werden sollte. Auf diese Weise wurde das heidnische Fest durch einen christlichen Hintergrund entschärft.

Schon beim Samhainsfest spielte die Herstellung von Masken aus Kartoffeln oder Rüben eine Rolle. Als im 19. Jahrhundert Halloween, vor allem durch irische Einwanderer, in den Vereinigten Staaten populär wurde, ersetzte man diese Feldfrüchte durch den Kürbis. Heute ziehen die Kinder mit kerzenerleuchteten Kürbismasken ("jack-o'-lantern") von Haus zu Haus und fragen: "Trick or treat?", d. h., ob sie einen Streich spielen sollen oder ob sie ein Geschenk erhalten. Im Allgemeinen bekommen sie Süßigkeiten, und Streiche werden nicht ausgeführt.

Ebenso wie andere Feste wurde Halloween von der Industrie als willkommene Absatzgelegenheit genutzt, vor allem Masken und Kostüme haben kurz vor Halloween Hochkonjunktur. In den USA ist Halloween bereits ein größerer Umsatzschlager als Ostern oder Muttertag und rangiert nicht weit hinter Weihnachten.

Inzwischen hat das Fest auch in Deutschland und anderen europäischen Ländern Einzug gehalten. Halloween-Partys sind unter deutschen Jugendlichen bereits eine beliebte Veranstaltung. Vereinzelt wird das Kinderfest Halloween von älteren Jugendlichen und Erwachsenen auch wieder mit einem dämonischen bzw. erotischen Charakter versehen, und der Begriff "Halloween" wird in Gruselfilmen und -romanen eingesetzt.

"Halloween" originated as Celtic New Year's Eve, the "eve of Samhain", or "Winter's Eve". In the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on 31 October. It was believed that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year, their only hope for the afterlife. Naturally the still-living did not want to be possessed. So on the night of 31 October, villagers would extinguish the fires in the homes to make them cold and undesirable. They'd dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily parade around the neighbourhood in order to frighten away spirits looking for bodies to possess. The bonfires that were once burned at Halloween to ward off these evil spirits are now lit on 5 November in celebration of Guy Fawkes Night (or Bonfire Night). The church adopted 1 November as the feast of "All Hallow's" or "All Saints'" in an attempt to christianise the pagan festival. The last evening of October was thus transformed into the "Eve of All Saints'" or "All Hallow Even" and shortened to "Hallow-e'en".

But this fun festival of pumpkins, luminous skeletons and the rest is just a relic of what has been for millennia a most important date, the end of the old year. It was formerly the eve of the Celtic festival of Samhain, a name which comes down to us directly from the Gaelic for the end of summer. When Britain was Christianised, it become All Saints’ Day, or Hallowmass, itself a shortened form of All-Hallows’ Mass, where hallow is the Old English halig, “a holy man“, from which we also get our words holy and hallow. The eve of this important day was All-Hallows’ Even, which has become corrupted to Hallow-e’en, now more commonly spelt Hallowe’en or Halloween.

Indian Summer (W3)

= "a short period of warm weather in Autumn" = "Altweibersommer" - The term first appeared in print in the late 1700s. It's thought to come from the Native American practice of gathering winter stores during this unseasonably warm weather. Although the name "Indian summer" is an Americanism (it originated in New England), the weather phenomenon also exists in Britain, where it is known as "all-Halloween summer" or "Old Wives' summer".

Indian summer also has developed a figurative sense, too, naming "a happy or flourishing period occurring toward the end of something".

Jingle Bells (W3)

Das besondere an diesem Weihnachtslied ist, dass es ursprünglich gar kein Weihnachtslied war, sondern einfach nur ein Schlittenfahrt-Lied und eher in die Reihe der Vergnügungs-Liedchen einzureihen ist.

Ursprünglich wurden die "Jingle Bells" von James Pierpont im Jahr 1857 zum Erntedankfest in seiner Kirche in Boston geschrieben. Das Lied kam so gut an, dass es die Kinder auch an Weihnachten vortragen mußten. Seither ist es ein Weihnachtslied.

(E6)(L1) http://www.anglizismenindex.de/
"jingle bell" = dt. "Schelle", "Klingglöckchen"

(E?)(L?) http://bdb.co.za/shackle/articles/bells.htm

DEVIL'S KNELL WILL CHIME 2001 TIMES.
"Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way" - Mention Christmas bells to Australians, and we think of beautiful red and yellow native flowers which were shown on a five-cent stamp. But if you mention the Christmas bell to the good folk of the small English town of Dewsbury, in Yorkshire, they must think of the bell in their church, "Dewsbury Minster", and wonder whether it will ever stop chiming. Every Christmas Eve it sounds the Devil's Knell for more than two hours.

James Lord Pierpont (1822-1893)
The colorful James Pierpont was the author of "One Horse Open Sleigh" which was first published in 1857. In 1859, he reissued the song under a new name: "Jingle Bells." It was a "sleighing song" which was a popular topic of the time and had nothing to do with Christmas, or for that matter, Thanksgiving.

Top story of the morning in the UK for the serious language scientist must surely be the report in The Sun concerning a children's toy mouse that is supposed to sing "Jingle bells, jingle bells" but instead sings "Pedophile, pedophile". Said one appalled mother who squeezed the mouse, "Luckily my children are too young […]

Chase's Calendar of Events
Sprache: Englisch
Taschenbuch - Contemporary Books Inc
Erscheinungsdatum: 26. Januar 2000
Auflage: Book & CD
ISBN: 0809227762


Who says a thorough reference book has to be dull? Filled with minutiae and irrelevance as well as useful information, Chase's Calendar of Events is about as eclectic as it gets. Turn to a day and find an armful of fact - not all of it relevant, but pretty much all of it fun. Birthdays and anniversaries of historical happenings are duly noted with capsule descriptions of the whos, whats, and whys. Need a reason to celebrate? How about Hug an Australian Day, April 26? Or Answer Your Cat's Question Day, January 22? Or National Mole Day, October 23? Special events with fixed schedules--the Festival of the North in Ketchikan, Alaska; Mudbug Madness, in Shreveport, Louisiana; the Edinburgh International Festival; and the Super Bowl, for instance - are properly inked in so you can't possibly forget them. Best of all, the book comes with a postcard redeemable for a free, searchable CD-ROM of its more than 12,000 entries. Irresistible and dangerously addictive entertainment. - Sunny Delaney

Synopsis
Includes more than 10,000 holidays, holy days, national and ethnic celebrations, astronomical phenomena, festivals, fairs, anniversaries, and other events from around the world.
