Forty, fifty, sixty years ago, trick-or-treaters roamed around with no adult supervision on Halloween night, because any family that didn't already have four or five kids always had the kids next door to lead you around. There was always that one house where a grandmotherly type invited us in to pick our own treats from a table full of lovingly crafted homemade candies, cakes, and cookies? That doesn't happen anymore, since kids aren't allowed to go into stranger's homes, or take any treat that isn't store bought and individually wrapped. Besides, the parents are choosing which houses to visit now anyway. Halloween is still fun for kids today, but it's different. Some of those changes are for the worse, and some for the better. Read about what changed in a list I wrote for Considerable.
