Happy Halloween from Park City! How Halloween savvy are you? Treat your friends by sharing these fun facts with them today!

1. The first jack-o-lanterns were actually hollowed-out turnips that were lit by candles, a tradition started in Ireland. Illinois may have played a role in the popular switch to pumpkins as the state is one of the top five pumpkin producers in the United States.

2. Americans spend about $7 billion on Halloween candy and $4 billion on Halloween decorations, parties and costumes every year.

3.The tradition of trick-or-treating goes back to the 9th century European custom of "Souling." On All Soul's Day (Nov. 2), the poor would go door to door begging for food and be given "soul cakes," a type of pastry made from bread and currants. In exchange for the cakes, the recipients would promise to pray for the giver’s dead relatives.
