Halloween Fun Starts with PCHSearch&Win!

True, it’s been a couple years since I’ve donned a Halloween costume and excitedly, albeit graciously, asked my neighbors for candy.

“Say thank you!” my mom would shout from behind me. I ALWAYS said thank you — even if all I got were some pennies or candy corn. I hated those things.

Now, I’ve found myself on the opposite side of the door, graciously handing out candy to excited little ghouls, pirates and various superheroes and movie villains.

When I was one of those little ghouls, I thought Halloween fun was just about costumes and eating WAY too many sweets. Actually to this day, I’m still not completely sure about Halloween’s true origins. I know a few of the fundamentals, of course, but the other day, my curiosity got the best of me when I caught my first glimpse of Halloween decorations at the store. So, I decided to explore a bit and consulted the almighty PCHSearch&Win for some information about this dark and whimsical holiday.

Here are just a few of the things I learned about Halloween:

-This holiday came about from an ancient festival known as Samhain, in which Pagans believed that, on October 31st, the worlds of the deceased and the living overlapped, causing the reanimation of the aforementioned deceased (zombies? spooky!)

-Pagans wore costumes and masks in an attempt to appease the evil spirits

-Dressing up in costume and trick-or-treating harkens back to the Middle Ages when folks would beg door-to-door on particular holidays

-Jack O’Lanterns weren’t always made from those big, orange gourds we’re so used to seeing; they were originally carved out of turnips. Who knew!

Another thing I learned? You’re never too old “treat” yourself to some yummy Halloween fare…or Halloween fun! In fact, in addition to using it to earn sweepstakes entries and win instant prizes, you can use PCHSearch to find great costume and holiday party ideas; not to mention some great ways to trick your friends and family – but don’t tell ‘em I sent you…

Halloween is around the corner, friends! Don’t let it sneak up on you…start searching on PCHSearch&Win today!

Frightfully yours,

P.S. Using PCHSearch&Win I discovered that for Halloween celebrations, Americans traditionally purchase almost 600 million pounds of candy a year! WOW! Can you guess — or search to find — what the top selling candy is? Here’s a hint: it’s NOT one of my favorites!
