Halloween Jokes

If it is October 31st, it is time for Halloween Poems! The writers at My Word Wizard have assembled a wonderful collection of jokes, sayings and poetry dedicated to celebrating this most ghoulish of days!

The custom of dressing up in costumes for the holiday (and indeed all holidays) originated in Europe in the middle ages. The word Halloween itself was first used in the 16th century, and is actually a Scottish version of the English All Hollows Eve.

The tradition spread across the Atlantic to the United States and Canada where, in 1927, the first known use of the term "trick or treat" occurred (Alberta, Canada).  The holiday soared to new levels of revelry in the New World.

In various parts of the world different foods are associated with the holiday. In England the eat bonfire toffee, while in Scotland and Ireland they serve candy apples and toffee apples. In the American and Canadian version, children are accustomed to candy corn, candy pumpkin and caramel apples. No matter what type of food you eat, it is all delicious and makes the holiday that much more enjoyable.

We think you will enjoy this very special catalogue of verses penned especially for the holiday of ghosts and goblins, witches and jack-o-lanterns.

Enjoy the day and remember, only trick or treat at the homes of people you know.
