It can be considered Barth's first full-length fictional work, and it also is likely to remain his most elusive. Barth, not unlike a fair number of other authors, has revealed himself to be embarrassed by his early unpublished work—in his case, most work before The Floating Opera. The Shirt of Nessus is briefly referenced in both of Barth's nonfiction collections, The Friday Book and Further Fridays , but little is known of its actual content.
The Poisoned Tunic
The only known copies not held by the author were kept in the Johns Hopkins school library and the Writing Seminars Department thesis copies, but recent inquiries by devoted Barth fans have shown that the copy held by the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins disappeared in the mids, while the other seems to have mysteriously "walked out" of the school's special collections division of the library. It is the opinion of some notable JHU faculty members who occasionally talk to Barth that he may have been the mastermind behind these disappearances himself.
While that remains speculation, when the special collections division notified Barth in when the volume was first found to be missing , Barth responded that he "was not altogether unhappy the library no longer had a copy". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Candy makers supposedly lobbied to extend daylight savings time into the beginning of November to get an extra hour of daylight so children could collect even more candy thus forcing people to purchase more candy to meet the demand.

Wiccans still celebrate Samhain as a New Year celebration today. Trick-or-treating has been around for a long time. Versions of trick-or-treating have existed since medieval times. In the past, it was known as "guising" where children and poor adults went around in costumes during Hallowmas begging for food and money in exchange for songs or prayers. It was also called "souling. Trick-or-treating as we know it was re-popularized by cartoons.

After the rationing ended in , children's magazine "Jack and Jill," radio program "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," and the "Peanuts" comic strip all helped to re-popularize the tradition of dressing up in costumes and asking for candy from door-to-door. By , trick-or-treating was hugely popular again. Halloween is the second-most commercial American holiday of the year.
