I remember a different, kinder, gentler time when we knew all our neighbours and it was safe to get things like fresh apples, candied apples, popcorn balls (my grandmother made 250 one year- and ran out!) and all sorts of other home-made goodies. There was even a man on our block who worked for Canada Packers and handed out individually wrapped wieners!
There were 40 houses on our street & we would collect enough loot at one go to half-fill a pillowcase. It got so heavy we would unload at the halfway point and then do the rest. Very few houses had their lights off.
