Haunted Refrigerator Night

hauntedfridgeOctober 30 is Haunted Refrigerator Night! As a precursor to one of the spookiest nights of the year, Haunted Refrigerator Night was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat to find, “what evil lurks in the refrigerators of men… and women… and venture unto the realm of the lower shelf, rear.”

When was the last time you gave your fridge a good scrub down? We’re going to venture to guess that it’s been a while. Those Asian leftovers behind your quite possibly curdled milk are probably growing some hauntingly hairy mold. If you’re looking for a way to get into the Halloween mood that doesn’t involve the traditional pumpkin carving or ghost story telling, turn off the lights and gather your friends and family around your fridge and find out what’s been lying dormant inside. The results are sure to be terrifying!

To keep your fridge from becoming the scariest place in your home, it’s good to give it a deep cleaning at least once a week. If you don’t always have time to complete such a task, there are a few things you can do to keep your fridge tidy in the mean time. These include: periodically checking for any spoiled foods and throwing them out, wiping condiment bottles before returning them to the fridge, and cleaning up any leaks or spills immediately.

Happy Haunted Refrigerator Night!

National Candy Corn Day

Candy-CornOctober 30 is National Candy Corn Day!

National Candy Corn Day celebrates the three-layered, autumn-colored candy made to mimic a kernel of corn. While commonly enjoyed during the fall, particularly on Halloween, candy corn was once advertised as a summer candy in the 1950s and enjoyed year-round as a penny candy, or a type of candy sold in bulk for a penny or a nickel per sack, during the first half of the 20th century.

Celebrate National Candy Corn Day by enjoying a handful or two of candy corn today…After all, you don’t want to be too full for tomorrow’s Halloween treats…including more candy corn!

Did You Know…that candy corn has been around for over 100 years? Candy corn was created in the 1880s by George Renninger, a candy maker at the Wunderle Candy Company.  Read more about candy corn’s history by clicking here.
