The late release season officially kicked off in September, and things have been especially busy. A number of anticipated sequels to big games, not to mention meaty new expansions, all dropped in September. Most publishers tend to avoid October for obvious reasons. Ghost Recon Breakpoint kicks off the month with a bang, followed by the Grid reboot — before things quiet down for a few days. Then, three major games release on the same day.

As the year nears its end, some games have yet to find a satisfying spot amongst the monsters of October and November. On 31st October, All Souls Day, they would go around to all the villages and collect "soul cakes" - a cake made out of square pieces of bread with currants.
The relatives of the dead would pass the cakes on to the Christians who would promise to pray for their relative which in turn would send them on to heaven. The more cakes given - the more prayers said. This is one custom which was thought that trick-or-treating originated from. It is also thought that trick-or-treating came from Britain where it was know as "Mischief Night", it is particularly popular in parts of northern England. It could also of come from old Irish peasant practice in which they would go from door to door to collect money, breadcake, cheese, eggs, butter, nuts, apples, etc.
Columb Kill. The Jack-O-lantern came from Irish Folklore. A man named Jack who was a drunkard and known for his quick temper got really drunk at the local Pub on All Hallows Eve. As his life began to slip away from him the Devil appeared to claim his soul. Jack wanted to stay alive and begged the Devil to let him have just one more drink before he died. The Devil agreed.
Jack was short of money and asked the Devil if he'd assume the shape of a sixpence so Jack could buy a drink and after that the Devil could change back to himself. I don't know why the Devil is suddenly so stupid, but he agreed to do it silly Devil.

Once the Devil assumed the shape of the coin Jack seized it and shoved it into his wallet which amazingly had a cross shaped clip on it. The Devil was now stuck in Jack's wallet. He went crazy - yelling and screaming - ordering Jack to release him at once! Jack did a deal with him oh yeah, smart move Jack where he would release him if he agreed not to bother Jack for an entire year.
