I seem to remember, and I know that our memories are not always accurate, when I was a kid we used to trick or treat in the dark. It was the 1960s and we still were supposed to be suspicious of razor blades in apples, but we couldn't imagine trick or treating in the daylight. I lived out in the country so my mom would drive us into town and dump us off. She didn't even follow behind us to watch. I guess that, having nine kids, she wasn't afraid to lose one or two. Those were the days!
