Halloween Trivia or Tricks.
Did you know that Halloween has been celebrated for over 2000 years. This has nothing to do with RI real estate but it does with the season.
Why orange & black colors to associate with Halloween? Orange represented the harvest in the fields and black is a reminder of death (death of the crops or to instill fear in all is the question).
What is the jack-o-lantern all about? Something to do with a guy named Jack who couldn't enter Heaven. The devil tossed Jack an ember who placed it in a turnip (no pumpkins available) he hollowed out and walked around forever with it.
And how did Dracula surface to enjoy Halloween so much? Well truth be told there was this Count Vlad in Romania that belonged to the house of Draculesti...so 'Drac' was born...a ruthless killer it seems. Dracula was born with the help of Bram Stoker who truly was the creator of Count Dracula.
All to be better enjoyed by boys and girls every Halloween...trivia or tricks can be surmised but good tales make the holiday more than a special treat for all. Halloween Trivia or Tricks.
