Tricks, or Treats?

The squirrels want to know. Do you like your Halloween scary or sweet? Is the best part of Halloween dressing up in your favorite scream mask? Or, is it the five pounds of candy slung over your back in a pillowcase?

This year we know Halloween is a bit different. You might not get to scare as many adults or get as much candy. But we discovered that Halloween has always been changing. For those who like their Halloween sweet with lots of sugar loot, we looked back at how trick-or-treating started. For those who like it scary with blood-curdling screams, we looked at old-time horror movies.

The squirrels, BTW, like their Halloween with a dash of pumpkin. 

Happy trick or treating. Stay safe.

For your sweet tooth, how trick-or-treating got started

It was more trick than treat.

Halloween started as a night of devilish pranks and turned into a parade of kids marching up the street demanding candy. 

  • Evil costumes gave way to princesses and superheroes.
  • Everything was homemade and then it was store bought.
