Little Miss Muffet has a spider crawling on her skirt at the Huntington Beach Main Street Trick or Treat Halloween Celebration

Little Miss Muffet, sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider, who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

Some say a tuffet is a three-legged stool and others say it is a little grassy bump big enough to sit on. Curds and whey is another word for cottage cheese. The curds are the lumpy parts and the whey is the milky part.

Mother Goose scholars agree that "Little Miss Muffet" is not about Mary, Queen of Scots. One theory is that an entomologist, Dr. Thomas Muffet, who wrote the nursery rhyme about his daughter, Patience. Several other rhymes appearing in historical data include lyrics: Little Mary Ester sat upon a tester or Little Miss Mopsey sat in a shopsey.

Main Street Downtown Business District Merchants hand out candy to trick or treat youth from 6 to 8:30 p.m. when the street is designated a children's fun zone. Moon bounces, pony rides, petting zoo, balloons and a costume contest all make this a night to remember. And it's totally free.
