"In October 1952, Katherine Marcus taught first-graders at a Manhattan community center how to play "proper games" for #Halloween. "The list included no breaking or soaping of windows, no marking walls with chalk and no starting fires," @nytimes reported. Elsewhere in New York, another group of children listened to the tale of an ancient witch who chased a child through the forests of Russia. Others learned how to play a game called, "You Can Scare but Don't Touch." The @nytimes photographer Patrick A. Burns photographed Mrs. Marcus and her pupils. This series of #halloweekender photos came from our newsroom #archives, known affectionately — and spookily — as the "morgue." #🎃👻" By nytimes on Instagram.
