Trick or Treating Fact
Trick or treating evolved from a tradition called “souling”. Over a thousand years ago, during the Celtic festival of Samhain, it was customary for poor children to go door to door begging for food or money. In exchange, children would offer to pray for the souls of recently lost loved ones.
Chucky the Doll Day
Last Tuesday was National Chucky the Doll day. The Chucky character was born in the 1980s horror film, “Child’s Play.” This annual celebration of the iconic character is for all fans of horror films, and especially for the fans of Chucky and all of the movies he has appeared in.
National Pumpkin Day
Last Wednesday was National Pumpkin Day. National Pumpkin Day recognizes a favored autumn decoration and food. Not only do pumpkins make great fall decorations, but the pumpkin also completes a variety of tasty recipes. A pumpkin is a kind of squash that is native to North America. The oldest evidence of pumpkin-related seeds dates back to somewhere between 7000 and 5500 BC to seeds found in Mexico. Also, the word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which means “large melon” in Greek.

1990s Nostalgia of the Week
This week’s 1990s Nostalgia is the good ole’ VCR. A videocassette recorder (VCR) is a device that records analog audio and analog video from broadcast television or other source on a removable, magnetic tape videocassette, and can play back the recording. VCRs became popular in the 1980s and 1990s. There were many video rental stores like Blockbuster and Family Video that allowed people to rent and return multiple VCR tapes. VCRs declined in popularity during the early 2000s and in July 2016, Funai Electric, the last manufacturer of them, ceased production. Good bye, VCR. You were a great friend!
