Facts, Figures & Folklore
About Halloween

Oct 27 : 04 days till Halloween

Did you know that there are more than 2,500 costume rental shops across the country?

If rental isn’t for you, consider some more frugal options: making a costume at home with materials you already have on hand or check out garage sales, thrift shops and your local Craigslist for costume sales.

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 Monday October 31st.

It’s Diwali!

Today is Padwa & Govardhan Puja, the 4th of the 5 days of the Diwali festival.


On the fourth day of Diwali, there is a tradition to settle old accounts and start new books. These new books are worshipped in a special ceremony, during which Hindus focus on eliminating jealousy and anger from their lives.
