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.

I'm trying to post fun items that aren't very scary, as I'm going for stuff that you might enjoy exploring with a grandchild.  Let me know if some don't work or they're too over-the-top-scary for the kindergarten crowd.  One site that we can link to sings some old, popular Hallowe'en-ish songs (like "Monster Mash") and at the same time posts the lyrics on the screen so you can sing along.  Hope you enjoy!  Boo, y'all!

This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website has evolved into your "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, go to the Online Chat, and see if you can begin a dialogue, or go to the Message Center and start one.  We have "Administrators" for both classes to help with development of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They will also, check the 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.
