Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate-all about apples.

Halloween and the abundance of healthy apples come hand in hand. With its early roots in the Celtic celebration of Samhain, Halloween revelers would dance around roaring bonfires wearing scary costumes designed to ward off ghosts.
