Halloween has marked the start of the US winter months and it has certainly been getting cool out there. Many Mad Bomber®  fans were easily identified trick-or-treating on the cold streets of 31 October as they could not resist wearing their warm Mad Bomber® hats. Needless to say the hat made everyone smile and no matter how scary the costume was, their cool hat totally nulled the scare factor as people identified them as a fellow Mad Bomber®  fan.

Just a few facts for you (sourced from Wikipedia), did you know that the carving of pumpkins originated with immigrants to North America in the 1800s and was associated with harvest time, and had nothing to do with Halloween till the mid to late 19th Century.

Trick-or-treating originated in the Middle Ages in Britain and Ireland when children and poor people would dress up on All Saints Day and sing and prey, door to door, to receive Soul Cakes. Soul Cakes were traditionally made cakes representing the dead. Each cake eaten would represent a soul being freed from Purgatory. was also first seen in  Scotland/Ireland where children in the late 1800s went ‘guising’; disguised in costume going from door to door for food or coins and carrying lanterns made out of carved turnips. They were  typically rewarded with cakes, fruit and money. Trick-or-treating became a USA tradition for Halloween in the early 1900s.

Most Christians do not mind Halloween, treating it as a holiday devoted to celebrating “imaginary spooks” and eating candy, and if anything it teaches children a little about death and mortality. Some Christians feel concerned about Halloween, and reject the holiday because they feel it encourages paganism and the occult.
