   Ghosts, ghouls and goblins! Halloween is nearly upon us, and last week, Villager staff writers Terri Viani and Meghan Couture hit the
   road to see what some residents revealed as their favorite aspects of the spookiest night of the year.

                                                                                             Madalyn Foti, Rhode Island —                                           Janet Gareau, Thompson —

example, men were more likely than women to

   • Men tend to invest more aggressively than
women. Perhaps not surprisingly men seem to
be more willing to take risks with their invest-

tive. On the positive side, risk is associated with
reward, so the more aggressive the investment,
the greater the potential for growth. On the neg-
ative side, taking too much risk pretty much
speaks for itself. Ideally all investors — men and
women — should stick with investments that fit
their individual risk tolerance.

picture.” Although both men and women
investors want information, women seem to

Revels ‘Harvest Home’ at Old Sturbridge Village
      enowned        Boston-based      Revels
      Repertory Company will perform its
      traditional “Harvest Home” musical
revue this Sunday, Oct. 23, at Old Sturbridge
Village’s Stephen M. Brewer Theater located
directly across from the Oliver Wight
Tavern. The show features a delightful mix
of songs, storytelling, drama and dance.

                          NOT SO

  The Revels Repertory Company is the tour-
ing ensemble of Revels, which has presented
its famed “Christmas Revels” at Sanders
Theater in Cambridge, Mass., for 40 years.
The costumed ensemble of 35 adults and
children performs songs, dances, and ghost
stories based on 19th-century American,
English and Celtic Harvest traditions, incor-
porating audience participation into the per-
formances. The Revels “Harvest Home” per-
formance opens with “The Souling Song,”
sung in England on All Soul’s Eve (Nov. 1). In
this ancient ritual, children (and sometimes
adults) begged for soul cakes, money, and
other food or drink. Soul cakes are spiced
buns, which were given in thanks for prayers
for departed souls, and the custom of “soul-
ing” is the origin of the American tradition
of “trick-or-treating.” The program also
includes Shaker songs, such as “I Will Bow                                                                                                           “Harvest Home”
and Be Simple,” with choreography based on
Shaker spirit drawings. An enjoyable event
