with two colleges, but it was still safe to walk the streets, maybe you were a litle careful walking past a fraternity house but..
Now I see older teenagers (old enough in be in a story here) with two marks of mascara on their faces and big Halloween bags. I look out the apartment complex window and see school buses from the next county brings their dozens to demand candy.
If you do give anyting a small child gives disgusting noises for only two pieces of candy (that cost about 75 cents a handful or 2). I keep thinking it would be cheaper to go to the bank get some Kennedy halves or dollar coins maybe dollar bills and put them in the bags ; about the same price but no cavities.
I will ignore the Hell Night attempts to burn out major cities in the northern states.
A well written story. Thank you for sharing.
A few weeks back my wife and I were watching a movie, who's name escapes me. It was a mainstream Hollywood movie, probably from the 40's or 50's. On Halloween night, the young kids (under 12) had a bonfire in the street, burning furniture. They would "kill" the neighbors by ringing the doorbell and blowing flour in the faces of anyone who answered the door. The adult characters thought this was a great way for the kids to spend Halloween, and encouraged them. My wife and I sat stunned. Was that tradition back then?
I noticed last year that Halloween is a disapearing tradition even here in the States. My wife and I rarely get more than a half dozen trick'er treat'ers, altho that could be a reflection of the demographic of our neighborhood.
When I was a kid, a dark porch light meant "don't trick-or-treat here". Last year we took the kids to a party at a friends house because our own block is dead (pardon the pun). We took the kids around the block after everyone was fed, which was probably about 8pm. The kids endured some rude comments from people who had their porch lights on, but either didn't want t-o-t'ers or thought that we were out too late.
Time to bring back the 'trick' in trick or treat, I say. But as the song says, "I'm an adult now".
Thanks for writing.
Nice story - brought back a lot of memories. Good luck in the contest
