It’s that time of year again where Halloween is just around the corner. I did a little research to understand the history and here is what I found.

Where did Halloween come from?

  • European tradition originated with ancient Celtic festival called Samhain
  • More than 2,000 years ago
  • People would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts
  • Trick-or-treat is a Irish and English tradition
  • In America people began to dress up in costumes and go around houses asking for food and money
  • 2nd largest commercial Holiday after Christmas with Americans spending $6 billion annually on Halloween

As always, be careful of eating too much sugar from all the candy and treats you receive. Remember do not receive candy from strangers and brush your teeth after you eat your sweets.

“Trick or treat smell my feet, give me something good to eat!!”
