Ghostly greeting everyone! Halloween is almost here and I'll be telling you all some fun facts about Halloween (but Number 6 is the origin of Halloween)!
1. "Jack o'lantern" comes from the Irish legend of Stingy Jack.
2. Candy corn was originally called Chicken Feed (Me: No wonder most people hate it).
3. The most lit jack o'lanterns on display is 30,581.
4. Halloween folklore is full of fortune-telling and magic.
5. The most popular Halloween costume is the Witch (second is the Rabbit, and third is the Dinosaur).
6. The origins of Halloween date back 2,000 years to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which was celebrated on October 31 on the eve of their new year, according to the History Channel. The Celts believed that the dead returned to earth that night, and so they lit bonfires and donned costumes to ward off the ghosts.
