Some Hallowe'en Trivia and Fun Facts 

Because of the unknown, Hallowe'en is one of the most captivating holidays, often celebrated by both adults and children.  The element of surprise makes it fun and unpredictable. 
                                                                                                                            

 

 

     Hallowe'en Holiday Trivia

Orange and black are Hallowe'en colors because orange is associated with the fall harvest, and black with darkness and death. 

Jack o' Lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candies in hollowed-out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday.

Pumpkins also come in white, blue and green.  Great for unique monster carvings!

Hallowe'en was brought to North America by European immigrants who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghosts 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 Hallowe'en night.  They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human.

Hallowe'en 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.

Hallowe'en 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.

Black cats were once believed to be witches' familiars who protected their powers.

    

Signs of a werewolf are a unibrow, hairy palms, tattoos, and a long middle finger with claws.

In 1962, the Count Dracula Society was founded.   

To this day, there are vampire clubs and societies with people claiming to be real vampires (give me a break....).

There really are so-called vampire bats, but they are not from Transylvania.  They live in Central and South America and feed on the blood of cattle, horses, and birds, a few drops at a time, often without the animal being aware.

Many people still believe that gargoyles were created by medieval architects and stone carvers to ward off evil spirits.  Gargoyles, architecturally, are actually rainspouts.  If they don't serve as rainspouts, then they're called grotesques.  Some are said to have resembled people the carver didn't like.

Hallowe'en is on October 31st, the last day of the Celtic calendar.  It was originally a pagan holiday honoring the dead.  It was referred to as All Hallows Eve and dates back over 2000 years.
              

Creepy Snippets 

If you see a spider on Hallowe'en, it is said to be the spirit of a loved one watching over you.

Worldwide, bats are vital natural enemies of night-flying insects.  The common little brown bat of North America has the longest life span for a mammal its size, an average of 32 years.

In about  1 in 4 autopsies, a major disease is discovered that was previously undetected.

Take heed of the following: 
This comes from Dr. McClurg via Dr. Harris. 
They wanted to share this with the classes,
as they feel it is something that could save
your life as well as that of a classmate orf friend.

 

I hope everyone can send this on as it is really important for everyone to know!
  
 
1.   Let's say it's 7:25 pm and you're going  home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.
 
 
 
2. You're really tired, upset and frustrated.
 
 
 
3.   Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw.
You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.
 
 
 
4.   Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.
 
 
 
5.   You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
 
 
 
6.   HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN  ALONE?
 
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating  improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
 
 
 
7.   However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
 
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
 
 
 
8.   Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and  coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood  circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it to regain a normal rhythm.
In this way, heart attack victims can get help or to a hospital.
 
 
 
9. . Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!
 
 
 
10. . A cardiologist says: "If everyone who gets  this email & kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life.
 
 
 
11.   Rather than sending jokes,  please ....... contribute by forwarding this email which can save a  person's life....
 
 
 
12.   If this message comes around to you  ..... more than once..... please don't get irritated..... U need to  be happy that you have many friends who care about you & you are being reminded of how to tackle.... Heart attacks.... when you are alone

  Happiness starts with a smile...

  …….we all need a good laugh to start our days!
The Contagious Power of Laughter...Too Much Fun 

When you think of riding the subway, laughter and joy aren’t the first words that spring to mind.  It’s a cramped place full of grumpy people either coming home from a bad day at work or are just generally upset.  Yet if you’re lucky enough, sometimes you can find happiness in a subway train.

One such magical moment was captured when a Belgian advertising agency working for Coco-Cola hired an actor to randomly start laughing on the train.

With the tagline–“Happiness starts with a smile”– their new ad aims to bring a bit of joy to everyone’s day.

Just watch and we dare you not to let out a small giggle, too!

This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website evolved into a "Stay In Touch" with classmates website. Each Classmate and our Guests have a personal page that is set up so they can share with us the things that have been going on with themselves and their families since High School.  This is a great place to brag on your children and grandchildren, share your experiences and plans.  Feel free to "link" your Facebook, My Space, You Tube, etc. to your personal page. Insert recent photos of you and your family, add your "since I left MHS" history, etc. 

The site will be updated, active and useful for as long as class members want it to be. Update your personal information anytime you wish, and encourage other classmates to continue updating theirs.  When you enter the Home Page, there is a box in the upper right hand corner that will indicate who else is using the site.  To send an Instant Message to that person, simply click on the box and type in your message.  When they get your message they can immediately respond.   One can also go to the Message Center and contact anyone in the classes and/or our Guests, to begin a dialogue.  

Addditionally, there are website Administrators available to assist with preparation of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They also, check new data entered by classmates to assure that it is admissable. Info60@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1960 and info61@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1961.
