For your extra credit this unit I’m going to ‘treat’ you by providing a more modern topic…get it? Treat? (its a pun!)

Halloween has been around in many iterations for quiet a while in history, but Halloween candy is a fairly new caveat to the holiday. I would like to you listen to how this sweet addition to the holiday got started and how it has changed in the past 100 years.


Your discussion of this topic will ask you to refer back to our discussion of Emerson’s philosophy of ‘Circles’ to hypothesize about how American cultural traditions change! 🙂 Please see our GoogleClassroom for the discussion prompt.
