All Hallow's Day [Nov. 1st, 2005|06:17 am]

The name Halloween is Scottish in origin and is short for "All Hallow's Eve," the night before "All Hallow's Day," or All Saint's Day. That day was set by Pope Boniface IV to honor the Catholic saints, and also to replace a Roman pagan festival of the dead (which had been held in late February, the end of the old Roman year). Later, Pope Gregory III changed All Saint's Day to November 1.

National Candy Corn Day [Oct. 30th, 2005|12:58 am]

Candy corn has been around for more than 100 years. George Renninger, an employee of the Wunderlee Candy Company, invented the popular confection in the 1880s and Wunderlee became the first to produce the candy. The Goelitz Candy Company (now Jelly Belly Candy Company) started producing the confection in 1900 and still produces candy corn today.

When candy corn first appeared, it was popular among farmers because of its agrarian look. The tri-color design was considered revolutionary and the public went crazy for it. Lack of machinery meant that candy corn was only made seasonally from March to November. Candy corn has remained unchanged for one hundred years and is a favorite at Halloween.

I think I would like to plan a funeral where everyone walks up to my corpse to poke it with a stick to see if I am really dead. Then, put it in the ground with a headstone that says "Game Over. Please Insert Quarter To Continue." or "Death 1 - Mary Beth 0"
