    Vintage Halloween ad

    I don’t remember magazine ads promoting Halloween. Maybe I didn’t read the right magazines. Anyway, Halloween has always been big business, especially in the candy industry. Halloween’s the one day where the whole country agrees to let their kid eat like crap and feast on as much candy as possible before passing out while watching slasher flicks.

    It seems like in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, every product tried to pass itself off as “great for Halloween”. Even cigarettes. Why am I thinking people passed out smokes to trick-or-treaters? I’ve been watching too much Mad Men.

    Here is a cool photo gallery of vintage Halloween magazines and newspaper ads.
