I hope you're ready for Halloween! And this weekend's time change. Football season is here and so that is ALWAYS a plus, especially because I love to coach for my son's team! Let me know how you're doing and, as always, if I can be of any help with your real estate needs or someone you know is in need of a dedicated broker supported by a great team, please call me! 

In the meantime, here's a little bit about the history of Halloween!

history of halloween


  • The history of Halloween goes all the way back to a pagan festival called Samhain.
  • The word "Halloween" comes from"All Hallows' Eve" and means "hallowed evening."
  • Hundreds of years ago, people dressed up as saints and went door to door, which is the origin of Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating.
