Halloween Nation

Included within the book are tons of wonderful commentaries by an enormous amount of Halloween buffs. One in particular:

"...In the city, there was a lady - she had her kitchen upstairs - and we'd knock on the door, trick-or-treating, and she'd throw pennies and nickels down. We'd run and grab them. But she was up there putting them on the stove. She was a nasty, nasty lady. We got an empty milk bottle and passed it around and all the boys donated a bit [of pee] and we left it at her door. Next morning the bottle was gone. We like to imagine that some time that day she opened the door and the bottle tipped in."

I read that quote yesterday and got a good chuckle out of it.

How great that someone made a book just for us!
