My kids loved Halloween...Lindsay was a darling Tiger Swallowtail butterfly one year in a costume her mother skillfully handmade, and Jerry saved the princess as Link!

Most years we've had about 100 trick or treaters at our home in West Richland, but covid jacked over Halloween 2020, even though it was on a Saturday and with the time change, it still wasn't the same.

This year my wife started feeling poorly with a cold and possibly the flu, so our house was dark for the first time in my life. I kept looking out to see if the streets were full of kids, but I didn't see that many.

That's why I pulled up some trick or treaters from a fun Halloween past...hopefully next year will be better! Look how many folks were out before covid in 2019...

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
