    Not really a story, but when I was a kid, parents usually didn't go with you trick or treating. We went as a group, and we went EVERYWHERE. We didn't take a little plastic pumpkin to put our candy in. We took pillowcases. We also went home and emptied them out, and then went back out for more. It's really amazing we have any teeth left :).

    I still remember the people who weren't home, and who still very kindly put out a bowl of candy, and amazingly enough, kids just took a few pieces. We very rarely came across any empty bowl. I LOVE Halloween!

    You reminded me --
    we used to have candy thru March !
    My older brother used to have the most candy --
    one year he took me along + I found out why --
    he used to go to the big apartment houses =
    quicker and less walking between houses.
    .
    I was a freshman at college when I first saw "Night Of
    The Living Dead".
    We were in a school auditorium.
    My friends were all making jokes about the zombies
    looking like people we knew.
    .
    "The Wizard Of Oz" used to be played at Halloween ( as a kid ).
    Nowadays......it's played at/near Thanksgiving ....for some reason ?

    Halloween in the 1970's in Los Angeles, Calif.

    I used to live with my sister as an adult and she used to take her kids to
    Beverly Hills area where the rich people lived and had lots of wonderful
    expensive candies for the kids knocking at their doors.

    The kids would get home real happy because they would get large candy
    bars instead of the penny candies. Plus, they would also get money from
    the home owners who would run out of candy. They would get quarters.
    Some people would hand out apples to the kids.

    Those were the good old days.... until crazy people started to put razors in
    their candies and apples to give to some of the kids in Los Angeles County.

    Times have changed where kids don't come to my door to beg for candies
    every Halloween. Beverly Hills now have gated fences to keep people out
    and also have patrol cars to protect them from strangers.

    My Halloweens are now spent in Las Vegas last year and this year I will
    be on a cruise ship for Halloween.
    We adults do still remember how to have fun during Halloween at parties.

    I was 9. It was a VERY cold night and mom put two pairs of pants on me over which I wore my dad's bib and patched coveralls. I went as a hobo. As we my buddies and I were hitting the GOOD candy area, I had to wee. So I waited … and waited. When I could wait no more, I started to run home but knew I wouldn't make it on time. I ran into an alley and started taking off costume and pants … and couldn't make it.

    I walked home crying. Big boys don't wet their pants. Mom told me it was okay, but I was through for that year.
