Halloween Donut Party

Throughout the 1950s, the donut industry tried hard to make Donut Parties a Halloween tradition. Their PR men also claimed that donuts could help make Halloween "more nutritious."

Those donuts (or doughnuts, depending on your preference of spelling) are probably better nutritionally. I prefer to buy from a local donut shop in the small town I live in - they start with fresh lard every morning and are finished selling what they have cooked by 10 a.m. They make a wicked, crispy Old-fashioned. Oh, I don't dunk.

Not a good sign that the very first word of the newspaper article is misspelled.

What kind of a party has a rule of “don’t make too much noise”?

When my daughter was a teenager, it scared me when she and her friends were quiet!
