Hi guys Abram here! Sorry I haven’t been posting in awhile, but i’m back. And first I want to say HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

taken from nisk.k12.ny.us

Now for my Question of the Day! Here it is: (and yes it is Halloween related) What were the first Jack-O-Lanterns made from?

Now a little history on Halloween.  Halloween dates back to the Celtic’s festival called Samhin. It marked the end of summer and the start of winter, which they associated with death and that on that day the boundary between the world of  the living and the world of the death became blurred and mixed. They thought this meant that the dead were coming back to the living world and wreak havoc. To commemorate the event they built huge bonfires and burned crops as sacrfices to the dieties. During this time they dressed up in costumes and told each others fortunes. Later when the Romans took over the Celtic’s territory, their two customs mixed and over the years evolved to our present holiday where people dress up and get candy and most of all get scared! BOO!!

Know that you know that let me tell you about the history of Halloween in Poptropica. This year Poptropica celebrated Halloween more than they ever had before, mainly with the introduction of the mini-quest Haunted House. Also they have introduced several costumes such as the Swamp Monster, werewolf, Frankenstein, Pumpkin Head, and I think the devil costume is pretty Halloweeny too. And also there’s the Follower’s Spook Pack in the cool stuff.

And know finally, I ask this question what are you guys going to be for Halloween in both real life and Poptropican and what are you going to do for halloween? My Poptropican in dressed in the Dr. Jeckell, Dr. Hyde costume., while in real life i’m not dressing up but instead am going to a festival like thing. Well that’s all. Bye! (Man this post is long)

Theres a new Astro Boy ad all over Poptropica! Before I tell you about it, I’d like to tell you about Astro Boy, the movie and the anime, yes the anime! Astro Boy was an anime in Japan a long time ago, and was very Popular. It first started in 1952 and ended in 1968. There will be some multiverse codes, for those of you who are too old to get into it. Unlike most ads, This one is not an adventure. In fact, its like the ad from Open Season 2. There are costumizable coustumes, a movie trailer, and a quiz. I’d also like to announce (credit to Zonexus for the following information) that the multiverse codes that let you access ads can and will run out like regular multiverses. Anyway, Astro Boy is an old anime, back from the dead and currently roaming the streets of Poptropica! Also, the Halloween Bashes are canceled, but always check back on Saturdays at 7:00 EST, cause if we have multiverse codes, we’ll post them then. Now I’d like to announce I have my own personal blog! I’m pretty sure you guys know the link, I’ll be posting sneak peeks of future stuff coming to the PIB. This has been Metsfan21, hoping to complete my book report. Before I sign off, I’d like to show you guys a pic I made using photobucket; Header-7-1.png picture by PoptropicaInfoBlog

Note: I don’t take ownership over da Astro Boy Poster Thingy.

Thats everything, Metsfan21
