Sunday, October 14, 2018   This year, Virginia is arresting trick-or-treaters over the age of 12 for being out past 8 pm! #TrueStory So, does this mark the end of trick-or-treating altogether? On this episode, Ian breaks down the history of Halloween in America, explaining how our traditions have evolved from their ancient origins to the second largest commercial holiday after Christmas (starting @ 38:25). In addition, Geoff & Ian are chatting about their favorite scary movies, the age at which they'll let their kids trick-or-treat alone, Halloween parties, forgotten matchmaking rituals, ghost stories, political haunted houses, "misappropriated" costumes, Geoff's disdain for candy corn & much more! #SmashingPumpkins #SoulCakes #HappyHalloween   Support the podcast & check out our new website @ www.eandgpodcast.com   Our show is made possible because of our listeners & by far, the best way to support us (no matter how much you give) is by setting up a monthly donation through PayPal.
