Did You Know? Carving pumpkins was a custom years before Halloween was ever a holiday. Gourds and pumpkins were made into lanterns and used to light the way for night watchmen, and the term jack o’lantern was coined to refer to the one holding the lantern (“jack of the lantern”). Several hundred years ago, the carving of spooky faces was meant to scare away evil spirits, and now the jack-o-lantern represents one of our most beloved Halloween traditions.

Trick or Treat!  – Over 100 years ago, the practice of “souling” was commonplace. This was a custom in which the poor went door to door begging for food. Trick-or-treating may have originated from souling. In the 1930’s, in an attempt to dissuade mischief makers from playing tricks against their neighbors, communities promoted asking for candy instead.

Whether you are the host of the party or welcoming trick-or-treaters, the stunning fall arrangements from Al’s Florist are a beautiful way to decorate your home. We are confident that we have the floral designs that you will love.
