Wow - how fun was that? Thanks so much for sharing that vintage journey. It made me think of the Halloweens in the little town I started out in (high in the Adirondack mountains). Of course, back then you could get a caramel apple from a neighbor and you could actually eat it. We'd get popcorn balls and homemade treats too and not think a thing of it. Remember those awful plastic masks that made your face sweat and the elastic band pulled your hair? My grandfather grew pumpkins in his garden for me every year and would give me a set of his old work clothes to make a fall leaf stuffed scarecrow dude to sit on the front step. He gave out full-sized Hershey bars (of course, I don't think they had mini's back then). He always put one in my plastic orange pumpkin before we left to trick or treat - to start me out. I don't think I saw one single kid carrying one of those plastic pumpkins this year. When I and the other grandkids got older, he would make us each a special trick or treat bag filled with good candy, fruit and little unexpected goodies. Yeah, he was pretty cool, my Grandpa was.

Thanks for sharing the memories BJ...your Grandpa sounds like quite a guy, and yes I remember the sweaty-hair-pulling masks, the awesome plastic pumpkins, AND full-size candy on Halloween! Good stuff...
