Is Halloween as big as it used to be? I remember as a kid Halloween was one of the biggest times of the year. We got to dress up in costumes. We went to parties. We went trick or treating. I remember the streets were filled with kids all dressed up out trick or treating. There were Haunted Houses that would scare you out of your skin. It seams like we see less and less of these activities. I know I don t see all the kids out trick or treating anymore. Every now and then you see a house decorated but nothing like it used to be. There also appears to be less and less haunted houses. Funny how times change.
