Fun Facts

Did you know that Halloween celebrations came into jeopardy [during World War II as nationwide sugar rations made candy expensive]( and hard to find? When sugar rationing came to an end in 1947, several candy companies became determined to make trick-or-treating and Halloween a mainstream activity again. Cartoons, such as Peanuts and Donald Duck, also got on board and started featuring trick-or-treating stories from 1951 onwards, which helped boost the enthusiasm for Halloween again.

It can’t be denied that a large part of Halloween is the candy. Sure, candy corn may not have won the hearts of everyone, but generally speaking, everyone consumes some candy around Halloween. In fact, Americans buy enough candy each Halloween to fill the Titanic six times!
