City Editor Cambrie here. My biggest gripe about Halloween is that it’s apparently frowned upon to go door-to-door looking for candy handouts as an adult. It’s not that I miss the sugar overload (neither does my dentist) — it’s more the sense of nostalgia thinking back on how fun it was to wander around neighborhoods with friends after the sun had set, see all the creative costumes, and be a bit impish.
So City Editor Ben and I took a little walk down memory lane and found some photos from when it was socially acceptable to march up to a stranger’s door and demand candy (while silently wishing for a full-sized Snickers bar). Ah, the good old days.
What was your favorite childhood Halloween costume? We’re dying to see a photo.
