Halloween would be less popular if...

...you got the urge to bite people's necks then.

...you know that one of the people invited to a party then was the main course(popular with ghouls, though).

...that was when all your dead relatives came to visit.

...you got spam from Hell then(with virus attachments, of course).

Not to eggzagerate, but the only free food I remember kids passing out was raw eggs. Considerable acceleration was applied if memory serves.

Yes, but dead relatives would probably have weird conversation and ideas.

I think you'll find that the technical term for that is shelling.

I got shelled once then -while going at high speed on a bike- some little beggar got me right on the ear - nearly took my ear off. The blood and egg pouring down my neck looked very impressive when I got home.

It's difficult to communicate at that speed, words become garbled. When you called out let me have some spokes, well…
