    Halloween / Safe

    Halloween was never safe when trick or treating.  Now a days, it may be better cause there's more services then before.

    Kind Of Blame Myself For Letting Halloween Get Bad

    When I was a kid between 5 and 14 Halloween was safe and fun. When I turned 15 -  I started hearing aren’t you a little big to be trick or treating and stories of razor blades in apples and poison in candy. When I turned 16 I decided it would be my last year trick or treating...

    In the 70's I Guess

    But in the 80's my mom would freak out about what I got in my bag. "That apple might have a razor blade in it!" "someone might kidnap you and take you in their house!" Yep.

    Trick Or Treaters Are Sick

    I find the whole idea completely abhorrent. A stupid American tradition that's moved over to the UK. From my understanding trick or treaters should only call on houses with a lantern in the window, these thugs don't adhere to that tradition though. I have them knocking until 10 o...

    At One Time, It Was

    When I was still young enough to go "trick or treat" we didn't need to haul our parents around with us, nor were my parents afraid to let us go together after dark. People weren't afraid to open their doors on Halloween night, and kids were home at a decent hour, before curfew...
