I didn't know anything about Trick or Treating when I was a kid. My three girls were born 1956, 1958, and 1962, and they participated. It was still safe at that time.
My Halloweens were hayrides to Camp Ben McCullough about 11 miles away. We roasted wieners for hot dogs and then toasted marshmallows. We sat around the fire telling ghost stories. Some of our parents managed to slip away to return wearing sheets and rattling chains to scare the wits out of us. Sometimes we had a cup of hot chocolate before boarding the wagon for the ride home. We sang songs all the way home, including 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall. Once back at our meeting place, we were given a small bag of Penny Candy and told not to eat it until the next day.
It was great fun!
