The roots of trick-or-treating go back more than 2,000 years to the Ancient Celts. They celebrated a pagan festival called Samhain on November 1 that marked the end of the harvest season. The night before, they believed the dead returned as ghosts, so they left food and wine on their doorsteps to appease them. In the 8th century, the Christian church replaced Sahmain with All Saints Day, a.k.a., All Hallows. The night before — October 31 — came to be known as All Hallow's Eve, which then, of course, became Halloween.

Back in the day, revelers couldn't just show up on a doorstep and demand candy; they had to entertain for it. In Middle Ages Britain, kids who were mostly poor went door-to-door dressed in disguise on All Hallow's Eve, singing, dancing, telling jokes and reciting poetry in exchange for food, wine and money. Irish and Scottish immigrants revived the tradition in 19th century America, turning it more or less into the trick-or-treating we know now.

Americans spend about $3.8 billion on Halloween candy every year. Counted in this figure: the confections you give out to trick-or-treaters as well as the candy you keep for "decoration" at home and boss-placating at work.

As stated by a recent press release, the Ram Rebel TRX has been approved for production, possibly in time for the 2021 model year. The Rebel TRX will be the highest-performance version of the Ram 1500 family, almost certainly powered by a 575hp version of the 6.2L supercharged Hemi V-8 found under the hood of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
