Halloween has Changed Since You Were a Kid
Remember when you went trick-or-treating as a kid, and 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.
My latest article for Considerable is up, called 10 ways Halloween has changed since you were a kid. Check it out and share it if you like. And don't get me started on bobbing for apples!
