Halloween Origins, With a Side of Whoopi

Pirate KeyboardBetter late than never (I hope): here's last week's visit with the Wake Up With Whoopi crew, wherein I gave a little spiel about the origins of Halloween, Trick-or-Treating, and other seasonal delights. For more details, click on over to The World Almanac for Kids site for some more kid-friendly facts about Halloween and other holidays.

Oh, and since I missed "Talk Like a Pirate Day" and haven't found another excuse to post the attached picture, I think Halloween is at least reasonably appropriate. So please enjoy the Corsair Ergonomic Keyboard for Pirates. Arrrrrrrr!
