This Day in History: 1938 – Orson Welles causes a nationwide panic with his broadcast of “War of the Worlds,” a realistic radio dramatization of a Martian invasion of Earth.

Fact of the Day:  Orson Welles feared that the controversy generated by “War of the Worlds” would ruin his career.  In fact, the publicity helped land him a contract with a Hollywood studio, and in 1941 he directed, wrote, produced, and starred in Citizen Kane, a movie that many have called the greatest American film ever made.

Strange, but True:  The tradition of wearing scary costumes on Halloween comes from the ancient Celts.  In those days, people believed dressing up as demons and ghosts would confuse or ward off the evil spirits who roamed the streets during Samhain (the pagan version of Halloween).
