Even as a child, I wasn't a big fan of Halloween but have enjoyed the creativity shown by some over the years in home decorating and costume design.

Tootsie rolls have always been my favorite and I also liked the ones that came in different flavors, the vanilla one especially.

I wasn't fussy as long as it was wrapped. Time to sort when the collecting was done.

What a lovely time to have experienced Halloween Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573   My memories are of 1960s racing home from school at lunchtime to get into our costumes and race back to school for the afternoon class parties.  My Mother kept a big trunk up in the attic, our playroom,  filled with homemade costumes that we could mix and match - I always seemed to gravitate towards a monkey with a perfect tail made out of fur wrapped around a straightened coat hanger, lol 
After school we were forced to eat dinner usually wieners and mac & cheese.  My 6 older brothers and I would plot out the routes, knowing which homes had the best loot would be first on our list.  We planned where to store extra pillow cases and keep our filled ones safe til we were ready to return home.  Greedy little sods we were. lol

We lived on a military base so we were quite safe for the most part.  We were not to ever eat apples due to the threat of razor blades in them.  My Mother would collect 2 or 3 bushel baskets from our many pillow cases and would cut them all up for pie or apple sauce.  We were glad to not have to eat them plain.

I remember the homes that provided homemade fudge, popcorn balls and candy apples.  We didn't like carmel apples but instead the bright red, hard shiny candy apples.  Strange that we had no fear of razor blades in those!!

When I was 10 we moved to the country and homes were soooo far apart we had to be driven so my parents filled up the back of the truck with kids and away we went, singing and telling ghost stories.  Many of the farmers didn't have candy available so we got homemade cinnamon buns, cakes, brownies, & cookies. 

Great memories of great times!

I don't really remember. But I'll share this.

Pam & I look forward to seeing the kids and their costumes but noticed they just stand at the door and don't say "Trick or Treat". I would tell them they need to say Trick or Treat. After they did  I'd say TRICK! They didn't know what to do until one bright 9-year-old girl said "You want a Trick?" I replied "Yes" Her retort was " I'll show you a trick. Hand me that candy bar and I'll show you how it disappears into my bag!" Well, that shut my mouth...lol, Pam howled...lol We gave everyone 2 candy bars

I've never been a big fan of Halloween. When we were young and went trick or treating, we were only allowed to keep a certain amount of candy - my parents took the rest and did something with it, I'm not sure what. I don't remember what I kept.

I do not remember. Yet I know it had to be the chocolate variety.

The hard sour candies were not for me.

Anything chocolate suited me just fine! I always seemed to end up with less candy than I thought...no doubt due to my parents.

Growing up behind the Wall, we didn't have nor knew about Halloween. My first time participating was in the early 90s when I lived in Merrimack, NH! Also, the first time discovering Reese's. I may or may not have had an addiction to it.. until I developed a dairy allergy that is. 

 

We did celebrate "Fasching" in February and got to dress up and eat lots of "Pfannkuchen" which are kind of like donuts but better. These were jelly-filled unless you got the surprise one - the secret ingredient was often mustard or ketchup. Ewww, not a tasty combo!

It was an overwhelming experience of the most pleasant kind to come home the night of Halloween and empty out the candy-bag collected. Deciding what candy to trade or eat and when... stood out for me. Chocolate covered marshmallow anything was my preference followed by any candy collected. I do not remember NOT liking anything

I loved it .... the fact that we could run around in the dark til 8 or so was a treat. In those days, no worries of someone trying to hurt you. 

Just pillowcases full of candy bars.

Back when you could still do this, our neighbor down the street gave out the best homemade cookies!!!!  We headed to his house first. Other than that, it would have been anything chocolate.

The little chocolate bars!  Hardly ever got those.  Or popcorn balls were pretty cool too.  I suppose these days they wouldn't be allowed unless you knew who made them.

We had a similar lady.... we called her the "cupcake lady" because she handed out home made cupcakes.  It was always my favorite stop and yes, we all had to come out from behind our masks so she'd know who we were.

Andrew,

I was never big on sweets, and the kind of chocolate I liked was too expensive for people to give out on mass.  Halloween was not something  important in my life.  A

Chocolate! and money! I would trade my sisters other candy for these items.  Oddly enough, we had a lot of people give dollar bills and change along with candy. As for today, I look forward to having a mounds bar or butter finger as an adult.
