Halloween in the Past

When I was young, trick-or-treating was done strategically. I knew which houses gave out the “big bars” and which houses gave out pretzels. Let’s just say, I avoided the pretzel houses.

After pushing the pavement all night in my princess costume, I would rush home and dump the entire candy bag onto the floor, sifting through my loot and taste-testing a few before my parents took it all away to ration me out.

But, I can honestly say, I have never gotten anything out of the ordinary in my trick-or-treat bag. I’ve heard of houses giving out dental floss or apples, but I guess my neighborhood always understood the assignment. Candy or nothing.
