Yet others claim it has Christian origins.

I don't care either way. I just want free candy!

Cherrie, You going Trick-or-Treating?
Halloween used to be so innocent and free when I was a kid before stranger danger made hover-parenting the norm. At least now adults have hijacked the holiday making for some fun parties. Hope you all can hand out lots of candy to cleverly costumed munchkins then go out for some Jello-shot debauchery and merry making.

Yeah ,alas we also get no trick-or-treaters either. Rural living does have occasional drawbacks. If some costumed munchkins showed up tomorrow I'ld have to give them a skid plate and a spark plug or two.

Fred's right. Been hijacked by adults. Kinda weird.

When I was a kid we had to have supper first and wait till dark. Had to be back by 10PM. Dad got all the Resses Cups and Mom got the "slo-pokes". No parent escorts on the streets just kids in homemade costumes having a good time. No razor blades in apples or PCP in candy. No pedophiles lurking.

Now kids have between 4PM and 7PM to walk the neighborhood. Some are old enough to buy booze and smokes. Parents everywhere. Got to think some are carrying too. Weird assed world.

Everything you said is true. I find irony in the fact that statistically crime was much more likely when I was a kid than it is now. Go figure. We are a people governed by our fears.

I miss the halloween of days gone by as described by Toma55. The trouble we could get into as trick-or-treating kids was very tame by todays standard; TP the house of that cute girl we were too shy to flirt with, egg the principle's car, hurry past the supposedly haunted house where the grumpy old fart lives...all good unsupervised fun, it was a holiday where kids ruled for a few hours
