Halloween 1976


I was looking at the sales flyers last Thursday and saw Halloween candy in them already. It might've even been in the ones from the week before. Does it seem like the Halloween stuff is out even earlier this year than last year? When I was a kid I liked this holiday but I haven't really enjoyed it in a very long time. My brother still does. He likes giving out the candy. I'm just glad when the day is over so I don't have to hear all the knocking at the door. That sounds so mean.

Our favourite Halloween was 1976. Mark was dressed up as a fireman. He had on his Emergency! helmet. That was one of our favourite 70's shows. I was an angel. This was my costume of choice three times. In the pictures we are trick or treating at our grandmother next door's house and also our neighbours Sandy and Rob. She used to help me with my math homework- fractions and percentages.

thomsans - I wish that I still had that pumpkin - it was made so nicely unlike the ones from these days.

Pam - thanks. Mom made my costumes most of the time. She did a Raggedy Ann one too.

Great costumes. :) I don't think I have any pics of my costumes from Halloween back then. What a treasure to have these pics!

Chelly - Thanks. Sorry to hear that you don't have photos of your costumes. There are many things from my childhood that I wish that I had photos of also.
