I don't remember Halloween parties at school either. I do remember watching my dad and brother try to carve a pumpkin, and being allowed to light the candle, with supervision. When I was under the
age of trick-or-treating it was my responsibility to hand out candy when the door bell rang.
Now most costumes are store bought and kids carry plastic pumpkins to put the goodies in. The age of trick-or-treating is getting lower and lower, I've even seen a newborn in costume. In the city where I live now it's strictly allowed from 4 to 6 pm on the Sunday before the holiday, even if the holiday is not until the following Saturday. Kid's can only go to houses with the porch light on, and sometimes the participating houses are so far apart the parents will drive the kids from house to house. Funny how traditions persist through changing times.
How was Halloween different when you were a kid?
