According to CBS news it is. In a lead story on this Halloween morning they outline their five ways that Halloween has changed. In my hometown, it's a mix. In some neighborhoods it seems that nothing has changed while in others it barely exists. A few years ago I had more than thirty five trick or treaters at my door, a few people I know had as many as two hundred. Last year that number fell to just seven. It would seem that Halloween is dying. Or is it?
Across the nation, it seems that Halloween has followed the children of yesteryear into the adults of today. While many parents are reluctant to take their children door to door, they have created quite an industry for costumes and parties at the adult level.
How has Halloween changed for you? How is it different in the parts of the country or the world in which you live? Will Halloween continue to exist? Or was this just a phenomenon of 1950's America, destined to go the way of the dinosaur?
