A Halloween Story

Halloween was originally, called All Hallows Eve — the night before All Saints Day — the observance dates from the sixth or seventh century. According to Scottish traditions, it’s also when ghosts, witches and other unsavory characters walk the earth for a day. However, most of the spooks knocking on your door tonight will be neighborhood children, dressed in costumes and begging for goodies with the empty threat “trick or treat.” The candy they will eagerly devour is part of the 24 pounds the average American consumes each year, down three pounds from recent years. However, satisfying our collective sweet tooth is worth nearly 20-billion dollars a year. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at www.census.gov.
