Halloween is quickly becoming the most popular holiday in America. Next to Christmas, more money is spent on Halloween decorations than on any other holiday.

Most people are familiar with the symbols of Halloween-- Ghosts, Jack O'lanterns, Witches, Bats, Skeletons and Black Cats-- but few know about Halloween's past. Why does it exist? What is the origin of trick-or-treating? Why does it fall on October 31st. Through these pages you will experience Halloween celebrations of the past, and take a look at Halloween today. For collectors this is a treasure trove of memorabilia, the largest ever published. It is illustrated in beautiful color and includes prices for reference.
