Today's fun facts are all about Halloween!!!
1) Trick or treating has existed since medieval times. Back then, it was known as, “guising” in Scotland and Ireland. The younger people would get dressed up in costumes and ask for money and food in exchange for songs, poems, or other “tricks.”
2) The sugar rationing during WW2 halted trick or treating. When the war was over, candy companies started launching advertising to capitalize on the return to this tradition.
3) Halloween is the 2nd largest commercial holiday in the country, behind Christmas.
4) In 2020, October 31st will have a full moon. The last time that happened was in 2001, and the next time will be 2039.
