Halloween is one of my favorite holidays in the US and I look forward to it every year. I really cannot write anything that has not already been written about Halloween or why I like it so much, so I thought it might be interesting to tell you a few fun facts. Here we go!
Did you know the hallowed out pumpkin we carve and put lights inside was originally a turnip?

Believe it or not, dressing up in costumes was once a way to hide from ghosts.
It is believed that if you see a spider on Halloween, it is the spirit of a loved one watching over you.
86% of Americans decorate their homes to celebrate Halloween.
Cats have always had a permanent place in Halloween folklore.
Halloween is the second largest consumer holiday in the U.S. Can you guess which one is the first?
I hope you enjoyed my little bit of trivia about Halloween. Hope you have a safe night tomorrow and Happy Samhain (that’s the name of the Pre-Christian Celtic festival that later evolved into the Halloween we know today)!
