A couple of Halloween facts

"I've seen enough horror movies to know any weirdo wearing a mask is never friendly."
               --Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986)

You've gotta love that quote!

Now for the Halloween facts I promised...

Did you know that candy corn is the top selling candy with over 20 million pounds sold per year?  I have to confess. I like candy corn. I usually buy a couple of bags this time of year. By the end of Halloween, I don't want to see candy corn, and then the next October, I'm ready for my candy corn fix.

I read somewhere that Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped candy.

At Halloween, about 600 million or so pounds of candy is bought. I have to be counted in that number because I buy candy for the "trick or treaters" who come by.
