 Halloween Trivia
By: Darin "Sid" Cameron, CRS

With Halloween fast approaching I'm sure those of you with small children are already worn out from costume shopping/building.  But don't worry, you'll soon have days where your little ones are sugar-binging and driving you even crazier!

So to get off the subject of real estate for a moment, here's a couple of fun Halloween facts.

The Jack O Lanterns originally came from Ireland, but were carved out of turnips!

This didn't change until immigrants got to America where pumpkins were more plentiful than turnips (and a lot easier to carve!)

The "treating" part of trick or treating is relatively new.  Young people disguising themselves and performing pranks has long be a tradition associated with Halloween.  However in the 1940s we saw the rise of kids taking treats over performing tricks.  Who says bribing isn't a good thing?
