About Halloween

Oct 21 : 10 days till Halloween

Did you know that more than 36 million children are expected to go trick-or-treating this Halloween?

That’s how many 5-13 year olds there are in the United States. Of course, age is no limit for Halloween fun, so those numbers might be a bit of an understatement.

Did you know that the states of Arizona, Nevada, Florida, North Carolina, Colorado and Georgia have all seen recent increases in their elementary-school aged population?

If you live in one of these six states, be sure to stock up on candy sales, as you’re likely to see lots of trick-or-treaters this October 31st.

The holiday of Halloween dates back to the Dark Ages. Once truly spooky traditions have morphed over the years into much more light-hearted (but still mischievous) celebrations. Here is a fun look at some of the facts and folklore that describe how All Hallows Eve came to be celebrated as Halloween. Join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Halloween.

Halloween will be celebrated on Sunday October 31st.
