|Damn you, writer's cramp!|
Things about Halloween you might not know:
-originally considered the Celtic new year, Samhain, Hallow's Eve or Halloween is All Soul's Eve. The next day is All Saints' Day instituted by Pope Urban IV to commemorate all saints.
- Celts wore masks to "blend in" with the spirits they believed walked the earth at this time.
- trick or treating comes from the custom of begging for soul cakes. Someone would offer the beggar a cake in exchange for prayers for one's soul. A recipe for Soul Cakes.
- saints whose feast day is Halloween: Saints Quentin, Foillan and Wolfgang
And for something completely revolting.
