If you're planning to celebrate Halloween this year, or even if you would just like to learn more about it, take a look at the many Web resources that the federal government is providing!
Halloween Pumpkin with Candy Image from FDA's
Halloween Safety Tips for Parents web page.
For safety concerns, you can find resources from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and more about topics such as food, make-up, and pedestrian safety as well as advice for purchasing decorative contact lenses.
Educational and fun facts about Halloween and its history are available from the Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Humanities, and even the Census Bureau and State Department.
If you have children (or if you don't!), you may want to take a look at some fun web sites such as Spooky Space Sounds from NASA!
States are also contributing to the fun. Are you feeling hungry for Deep Fried Pumpkin Brains? If so, Virginia's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services can help you out!
All of these websites, and many more have been compiled at USA.gov at their Halloween topic page.
