Get Down To Business.
Did you know Jack-O'-Lanterns and trick or treating both originated in Ireland? In those days, Halloween was thought of as a sort of an Irish Valentine's Day, too, and one of the best nights a year to find a new love.
And with Halloween falling on a Friday this year, you can bet that the celebrating will last three days. Hey, it just means you'll get more mileage out of your costume — and maybe three times as many chances to find that special someone.
