DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC’s Completely Subjective “Best Of” List (Halloween Edition)

Best Fact #1

Halloween goes back 2,000 years.

Best Fact #2

Americans spend an estimated $6B on costumes, candy, and related Halloween paraphernalia every year. (You read that right: Not six million, but six billion.)

Best Fact #3

The trick-or-treating we know today was much different in the past. It was called “guising,” where kids and teens would go out in costume and sing or recite poetry and tell jokes. In return, they would get food, wine, and money.
