Halloween is finally here so here are 3 spooky facts:
- A study once showed that Halloween can actually make children naughtier!

- Jack o’ Lantern’s used to be made out of turnips, beetroot and potatoes not pumpkins, see the picture below to see just how much creepier these looked.
- The tradition of dressing up on Halloween originated with the Celts during Samhain. During the festival they dressed up as ghosts and evil spirits to hide from real demons and spirits that they believed to wander and roam their streets.
