Our ancestors, no matter what faith, creed or color; attached subtext to events to try and explain them in a rational sense - for the most part, we call it "fokelore". I grew up hearing that birds carried the souls of the dead. Not as much reincarnation; but that birds, especially crows & ravens (probably because of their color), are more like soul taxi cabs.
So it's only fitting that the Crow (or Raven) fits in so easily in with the Halloween theme.
