Halloween is almost here and the scarecrows or tattie-doolies as the Scottish call them are out.

But Halloween is all about trick or treating and that means candy.  The average American eats 24 pounds of candy a year, and most of that consumption occurs around Halloween.  What do you call a person who loves to eat?   A grandgousier

Popular costumes for this year are happy face and wink face Emojis.  Of course, since it is a presidential election year, there are various costume choices for those who wish to dress up as democratic candidate Hillary Clinton or republican candidate Donald Trump.

If you ask me, the only thing scarier than Halloween this year IS the presidential election.  What’s another word for the fear of Halloween?  Samhainaphobia!
