Why do we celebrate Halloween by putting on bizarre outfits and asking strangers for candy? Who is Stingy Jack, and why does he haunt our dreams? We decided to take a look at a few of Halloween's most well-known customs and ask, What do they all mean?
The next time you think it would be funny to scare the living daylights out of someone, you might want to consider this: medical experts say that an intense fright can severely stun the heart, enough even to kill a perfectly healthy human being.
There's a chill in the air, brandy is slowly edging out rum as the drink of choice, and the skin around our eyes is brutally chapped -- must be Autumn! And you know what that means -- time for some laughs courtesy of perennial favorite Nightmares Fear Factory, a haunted house in Niagara Falls with a hidden camera that takes pictures of people while they're having the crap scared out of them.
