Halloween Candy Tampering

October 31st is noted as All Hallow's Eve or Halloween. It's believed Christians took this festival concept right from pagan origins of the Celtic Samhain celebration. There is much debate on how this holiday began, but it has become a most popular time for children to get candy and adults to put on costumes and watch scary movies. The basics are the same; scary decorations, costumes, parties, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, Jack O'Lanterns, apple bobbing, trick or treating, and horror themes. America has done Halloween up more than any other country, celebrating it full force with horror movie marathons to Haunted Attractions and huge parties.

There is, however, a much darker side to Halloween - like the tainted candy fears.

My weekend began Thursday night. I pulled out the flashlight and began to have all kinds of childhood fun and got myself in the playful mood for a Halloween-filled weekend. See Sunday's post about flashlight fun. Then, I headed to my best friend's across town to spend two days and two nights of crazy October fun.
