Halloween, which dates back to Celtic rituals thousands of years ago, has long been associated with images of witches, ghosts and vampires.

Today, Halloween is more of a pop culture event, with more children likely to be dressing up as their favorite super hero or cartoon character than a ghost.

But how many people consider their neighborhood safe for trick or treating, and how many potential trick-or-treaters will on the streets this Friday night? I have the numbers. And they will frighten you (if you're adverse to accounting practices).

I Hope Keith Olbermann Doesn’t Get Fired [Video]

I like Keith Olbermann. I like his show on ESPN2 -- a lot.

I'm kind of peeved they moved it from 11 p.m. to 5 p.m.; I will never get to see it again.
