Back in 1957 My cousins and I went treat or treating, we would grab a paper bag as we never used costumes and began our search for many treats, or so we thought!
We just went house to house as always then we had an idea to travel to this apartment building so in that way we could knock off a lot more treats, going up and down the flights door to door and we were doing great, till we got in the elevator when it came to a big stop!
we were stuck and my little cousin about 5 years old started crying and we had to calm him down. We pushed the alarm and after about 45 minutes the janitor came and helped us out we were stuck between the floors.
We were on our way home about 5 blocks when we ran into a few kids that were older and they were going about town just looking to cause trouble and as they were coming near to us they said “here’s your treat” and pulled out these small pies and threw them at us My cousin got one right in the face! I ran up the block fast as a rabbit! and my cousins followed just as fast. Yea it was a fun time and a halloween memorie I’ll always remember.
That’s a great story, could definitely be a movie. I’ve also heard kids would go even without costumes back then. Great post as always! I love Halloween!
