So, how about a vintage Halloween photo to bring back a few memories of Halloween in the 1970s?
Here I am, as a skeleton, with my sister as Little Red Riding Hood, in 1970. Gotta love the vintage canisters in the background, and the general late ’60s/early ’70s vibe the kitchen has going on. How many kitchen floors like that do you see nowadays?
From the looks of things, I’m guessing we bought our masks and created the rest of our costumes. I know you’re envious of my awesome shoes. Many of my childhood memories revolve around hideous shoes …
I love the plastic pumpkins for collecting candy, too. So vintage and so … refreshingly small. I remember a few years ago, one of my children had her (fairly large) candy receptacle break all over the yard in the midst of trick-or-treating. Thankfully, a kind neighbor brought her out one of those large fabric bags that seem to be given out everywhere. Seriously, trick-or-treating today results in SO MUCH CANDY. Kind of refreshing to think of giving kids a simple Tootsie Roll or two. That would never fly today.
How about you? Halloween memories? Or perhaps a fun story from last night?
