Interested in some fun facts about Halloween? Taken from the randomhistory.com website, here's some things I found interesting and thought I would pass along.
The first jack o' lantern was made from a turnip!

Trick-or-treating evolved from the ancient Celtic tradition of putting out treats and food to placate spirits who roamed the streets at Samhain, a sacred festival that marked the end of the Celtic calendar year.
The black and orange associated with Halloween? The orange is symbolic of harvest and autumn, the black signifies death and darkness, a reminder that Halloween once was a festival that marked the boundaries between life and death.
Ireland is believed to be the birthplace of Halloween.
Halloween originated in 4000 BC which means it's been around for over 6,000 years!
Do you plan to dress up this Halloween? Perhaps you are going to or hosting a Halloween party? Staying at home and giving out treats to the little tricksters who come to your door dressed as little witches, Bob the Builder, a ninja or TMNT? Perhaps you are just planning a quiet night at home with just a candle and a glass of wine. Whatever Halloween means to you and however you plan to spend it, I hope it will be enjoyable for you!
