Halloween is the best time of the year for any sugar-loving kid (which, let's face it, is all kids).

The Origin Of The Most Unusual Fad Of The 90s Proves It's Much More Than A Flash In The Pan

We all remember that one kid on the playground who was slapping around a stick as though it was the most impressive thing in the universe. Sure, it probably required a decent amount of skill, but the Devil Sticks fad died out fairly quickly and we all moved on to the next great craze.
