The Creation Of Teli

By Jane Zync

Its raining in NYC, and Chris is in his basement trying to fix his old TV (well his mothers basement, he is Greek American and can not leave the house until he is married). He laughs hysterically and his mother calls down to him "What the hell are you doing!", "Nothing!" Chris answers and gets back to work.

Suddenly a big burst of lighting hits and the ground shakes. The Television turns on and static noise is heard. As Chris falls to the floor The TV turns into Teli. The Barney like monster shaped live a TV comes to life and runs through Chris's home! Chris chases him up the stairs to the second floor of his home where Teli hits the wall and falls to the floor.

Chris is scared and asks what he is. Teli does not speak english and Chris must figure out his name, and why he is here. Chris names him Teli, and the rest is history!

Today's Halloween customs are thought to have been influenced by folk customs and beliefs from the Celtic-speaking countries, some of which have pagan roots, and others which may be rooted in Celtic Christianity.[32][33] Indeed, Jack Santino, a folklorist, writes that "the sacred and the religious are a fundamental context for understanding Halloween in Northern Ireland, but there was throughout Ireland an uneasy truce existing between customs and beliefs associated with Christianity and those associated with religions that were Irish before Christianity arrived".[34] Historian Nicholas Rogers, exploring the origins of Halloween, notes that while "some folklorists have detected its origins in the Roman feast of Pomona, the goddess of fruits and seeds, or in the festival of the dead called Parentalia, it is more typically linked to the Celtic festival of Samhain", which comes from the Old Irish for "summer's end".[32] Samhain (pronounced sah-win or sow-in) was the first and most important of the four quarter days in the medieval Gaelic calendar and was celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.[35][36] It was held on or about 31 October - 1 November and kindred festivals were held at the same time of year by the Brittonic Celts; for example Calan Gaeaf (in Wales), Kalan Gwav (in Cornwall) and Kalan Goav (in Brittany). Samhain and Calan Gaeaf are mentioned in some of the earliest Irish and Welsh literature. The names have been used by historians to refer to Celtic Halloween customs up until the 19th century,[37] and are still the Gaelic and Welsh names for Halloween.

According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots
