Bats, cats, and other animals are often associated with misfortune if you happen to see them during the Samhain season. Although many people don't truly believe in these superstitions anymore - and often dismiss them as "old wives' tales," there's still a bit of a cultural aspect to them.
The Halloween bat dates all the way back to the roots of Halloween, during the festivals of Samhain. The sacred bonfires burned at Samhain would attract many bugs and flying insects which caused bats to gather at each festival. Since bats are nocturnal and eat insects, they became closely linked to the holiday.
If bats come out early on Samhain night and fly around, it means good weather is coming. During the Middle Ages, the bat was associated with witches, dark magic, sorcery, and even talking to the dead. People in rural Scotland and northern England suspected bats of being messengers between witches and the devil.
