For years now I've had a small mental list of items I would one day like to own. These are obscure things that aren't easy to find usually. An old red phone like the one commissioner Gordon used to call Batman, a dynamite plunger, etc. This weekend we came across one of my list items. A bar globe. Old school globe on the outside which opens to reveal a bar and ice bucket inside. First one I've seen outside of a movie. Unfortunately this one was HUGE. Had to be more than 3ft across which is just too large for my needs. Alas, the hunt continues. #globe#hunt#antique#vintage#bar#hidden#auction
Largest lake? Most remote place on Earth? Highest permanent human settlement? These are just a few places on the Globe of Extremes. See them all and learn how the globe was made by tapping the link in our bio.

There is a lot of debate around the origins of trick-or-treating. One theory proposes that during Samhain, Celtic people would leave out food to placate the souls and ghosts and spirits traveling the Earth that night. Eventually, people began dressing up as these otherworldly beings in exchange for similar offerings of food and drink.
Other researchers speculate that the candy bonanza stems from the Scottish practice of guising, itself a secular version of souling. In the Middle Ages, soulers, usually children and poor adults, would go to local homes and collect food or money in return for prayers said for the dead on All Souls’ Day. Guisers ditched the prayers in favor of non-religious performances like jokes, songs, or other “tricks.”
Some sources argue that our modern trick-or-treating stems from belsnickling, a tradition in German-American communities where children would dress in costume and then call on their neighbors to see if the adults could guess the identities of the disguised guests. In one version of the practice, the children were rewarded with food or other treats if no one could identify them.
