Halloween is not only a time for candy and celebrations, but it’s also a time to express yourself. Or, if you’re a kid, a time for your mom to express herself. This Halloween, I pay tribute to the Ghosts of Halloween Past—ourselves as kids—all dressed up and ready to haunt our neighbors’ doorsteps for treats.
Halloween candy back then came in all shapes, flavors, and sizes. This is still true today, but you just don’t see some of the classic Halloween candy anymore. If you were lucky enough to be a youngster in the heyday of trick-or-treat, candy such as this should look familiar to you.
Some of you might think, “Oh, big deal—candy corn and pee wee jelly beans.” But it was a big deal, and people have Halloween memories to last a lifetime.
Enjoy this gallery of us, the trick-or-treaters of yesteryear who are still kids at heart!
