Hello all. Thought I would sign up to spread a bit of knowledge and gain some on the fascination of the tradition. As I recall the first time I went Trick-or-Treating was 1969 and only for a couple of years, maybe a total of 4 times and never with parents in tow. We use to stay up very late at night and even played pranks afterwards like setting a purse with fake money hanging out in the suburb road with a string attached to pull it under a tree when someone would stop their car to check it out. Anyhow, I was doing some research on a different subject and then switched to mythology to pursue a tangent and ended up finding out what Halloween is really all about. I would be interested in knowing if anyone else knows, I know of only one other person in the world so far.
