Charles Dickens began writing A Christmas Carol in October 1843 and completed it 6 weeks later, in December of that same year.
Few families in Victorian England owned an oven. Like the Cratchits, they would bring their goose or turkey to the local baker who would cook it for a small fee.
Bob Cratchit would have paid 7 shillings for the goose, 5 for the pudding and 3 for the onions, oranges, and sage. ( In the 1800s, a shilling was worth about 40 cents. ) Today, the cost of these items would be about $58.
The 1st was the Day of the Dead. Today is National Deviled Egg Day Tomorrow is National Sandwich Day. The 14th is National Spicy Guacamole Day.The 23rd is National Cashew Day. The 29th National Chocolate Day. Veterans Day occurs on the 11th each year. It is for honoring those who have served honorably in the military during both wartime and peacetime.

1898:Candy Corn is produced by the Herman Goelitz Confectionery Company of Fairfield, California, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. (from women’s day magazine 2011) October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. More than 35 million pounds-that’s 9 billion pieces-are made each year. Like politics, the tricolor treat has American’s sharply divided, love’em or hate’em? I know that I can always eat a handful or two in October.One kernel has a mere 3.57 calories. Candy Corn is fat-free. A cup of candy corn has about as many calories as a cup of raisins. ( from family circle magazine 2011.)
Some thing else for your candy dish this October, the Hershey Kisses Pumpkin Spice are wonderful. And wrapped very festive. Enjoy!
