  1. The first jack-o-lanterns were made from turnips, not pumpkins.
  2. In the 1800′s when Halloween first became popular in America, children were more likely to pull naughty pranks than ask for treats. It wasn’t until the 1950′s that candy became a more prevalent part of the holiday.
  3. The word “witch” gets it’s origins from an Old Saxon word, “Wica” meaning “wise woman” and referred to women who were proficient and knowledgeable in medicinal herbs and fortune-telling.

  5. October 30th is National Candy Corn Day.
  6. Harry Houdini died on Halloween.
  7. Owls are a popular Halloween image because, in Medieval Europe, they were thought to be witches in disguise. Legends says an owl’s call meant someone was about to die.

  9. According to folklore, if someone puts their clothes on inside out and walks backwards on Halloween, they will see a witch a midnight.
