One bite and you can't stop eating it while you make it. The best part, it's gluten free too! I remember as a kid being able to go trick-or-treat to everyones house in the neighborhood. You would make your own custom and used some imagination to make it.
Today. kids have a store bought and most of the time it's an action hero or a Disney character. Things have changed in so many ways where everything has become store bought. The one thing that has become very popular now are house parties with tons of decorations to be scary!
The practices of Halloween comes from the Celtic paganism in the British Isles, and the feast of Samhain for the new year. They believed it was the time that ghosts and spirits came out to haunt. On this day, the Celts would appease the spirits by leaving them treats. The feast was celebrated in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and parts of Britain. As American as this holiday has become the original roots are roots are Celtic-European.
