Halloween

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

Tootsie rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in America.

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

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

History of Halloween

Halloween originated as the ancient Celtic harvest festival of Samhain (pronounces [Sow-en]) in Ireland and ancient Britain, when the spirits of the dead were thought to revisit their homes, and all kinds of ghosts, goblins, witches and demons were believed to be roaming about. In the 9th century, the Catholic church grafted the Christian onto the pagan when it named Nov. 1st ‘All Saints’ Day’ and Oct. 31st became ‘All Hallow’s Eve’.

The holiday was introduced to the United States in the last century by Irish immigrants as a largely secular occasion for trick-or-treating and making mischief.
