    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.

    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...
