Happy Halloween, everybody. Let’s celebrate today with some random facts from past Halloween-inspired Did You Know’s!
- Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States are the only countries where children go trick-or-treating.
- The tradition of carving jack-o’-lanterns started in Ireland hundreds of years ago. Irish people carved mean faces into turnips to scare bad luck away.
- The most popular Halloween candy is chocolate!
- Pumpkins are the world’s biggest fruit. Sometimes they grow so big that they weigh as much as grizzly bears.
