According to this 1977 Halloween Safety Film, You Might as Well Cancel Halloween

Vimeo Link

A blogger named Jason Willis tracked down this 1977 Halloween safety video in which he appeared at age seven. The video, a Centron educational film, pretty much takes issue with every aspect of children's rituals for the holiday. Don't wear black. Don't wear a mask. Stay away from your razor-spiked, dangerfest of a candy sack. Perhaps this film is what started the descent into shopping mall trick-or-treats and parking lot trunk parties. "Remember, there are a few people who will do things to hurt kids." Particularly if the kids are dressed in white robes and white, pointy hats, with reflective accents to make sure their getup is seen far and wide! -Via Dangerous Minds
