A Day To Celebrate the Beauty of Corn (Tuesday's Truths WK 100)

Today is National Candy Corn Day, a holiday which I've discussed in a few entries here on Blogger, but since this year it coincides with my Tuesday's Truths series (for which I've already published a post) the figurine featured in the image atop this entry has asked me to remind readers that this holiday (as I mentioned in my 2017 post) "is intended to celebrate the beauty of corn..."

As you can see, she is carrying a Jack-O-Lantern-style container to hold any treats she might get when trick or treating — which might include candy corn!

And by now you may know, an image of a Jack-O-Lantern is featured on the front of my 2018 Halloween card, which can be seen in the photograph below.

This card is available via Fine Art America (FAA). Price info can be seen in the following screen shot from FAA. 

And here's the link to see more about this card and others:  http://bit.ly/2s1ajZF

Moreover, Jack-O-Lanterns are featured in volume two of my Words In Our Beak book series.

According to Holiday Insights"Candy corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger, and first manufactured by the Wunderle Candy Company. The Goelitz Candy company was the first to manufacture mass quantities around the turn of the century."

And a page on punchbowl.com, states,"... candy corn has been around for more than 100 years and has never changed its look, taste, or design." They also claim the following: "Today, candy corn is a favorite American treat to enjoy during the Halloween season. The National Confectioners Association estimates that 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold annually."

I suppose this means the likelihood of my figurine dressed — as an ear of corn — receiving candy corn while trick-or treating is high.
