Better late than never :). I remember those days as well, Mac - when we walked around getting candy without being fearful. In New York City we had tons of places to visit. I was allowed to go to the apartments in our large building as well as one across the street and one next to us. That was the limit my folks set. I remember we always had a party at church with the usual things - bobbing for apples and so on.
It's funny because I know I wore a number of costumes over the years, but I only really remember one. I guess it was my favorite because I wore it for three or four years. It was a cloth tiger outfit that zipped up the back and it had a long tail. How I loved that tail. It came with a hood with cutouts for the eyes and it had ears. The first year it was too big for me (I think it was a hand-me-down from someone), and I remember crying when a few years later I couldn't fit into it any more. I think my mother passed it on to someone else.
Today I saw news clips on the TV about how people helped children to enjoy Halloween in spite of Hurricane Sandy. One family took their kids around in a rowboat. The indomitable human spirit .
