Did You Know? Why are pumpkins associated with Halloween?

Using pumpkins as lanterns at Halloween is based on an ancient Celtic custom brought to America by Irish immigrants. All Hallows Eve on October 31st marked the end of the old Celtic calendar year. On that night hollowed-out turnips, beets and rutabagas with a candle inside were placed on windowsills and porches to welcome home spirits of deceased ancestors and ward off evil spirits and a restless soul called “Stingy Jack.”

Okay and in other News. I found the other books that Dan Brown has written ^_^

Digital Fortress : A Thriller
Deception Point
Angels & Demons

I even added them to my wishlist ^_^ with some other books. I feel so nerdy now
