Halloween Holiday Trivia...

 

Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death.

 

Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.

 

Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in America.

 

The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts roamed the countryside on Halloween night.  They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human.

 

Halloween candy sales average about 2 billion dollars annually in the United States.

 

Chocolate candy bars top the list as the most popular candy for trick-or-treaters with Snickers #1.

 

Halloween is the 2nd most commercially successful holiday, with Christmas being the first.

 

Bobbing for apples is thought to have originated from the roman harvest festival that honors Pamona, the goddess of fruit trees.
