Consider yourself lucky if you were able to go trick-or-treating without the threat of getting your candy stolen by older kids. I think it started out mostly as an urban myth, but the thought of it happening made Halloween night a little more frightening. I remember the year my friend’s candy bag became the bullies’ prize. After running home, the rest of us were asked to ‘share’ our cornucopia of candy with our less fortunate friend. Maybe that’s why we always felt so compelled to eat as much of our candy as we could in one night.
