Trick-or-Treating has always been a big part of Halloween celebrations. Halloween all started back in the 20th century where is wasn’t very popular and people didn’t know what it was. But as time when on in WWII, Halloween celebrations were toned down due to sugar rationing and the sober mood that the nation expressed.

As the 50s and 60 came along, Trick-or-Treating became a more important Halloween ritual like they are today. It became the main focus of what Halloween is all about because it is seen to be an activity in which all the members of a family can do together. It remained popular through the 70s and 80s but it started to change around the 90s.

Many factors that changed the holiday included apartments, free standing houses, and non-traditionals houses. As parents became busier, more and more children began to stop Trick-or-Treating in which malls began to open to pass out candy and coupons to the kids who are not able to go around their neighborhood. Events like these proved games, activities, and performance that were related to the Halloween holiday.

Have a fun and safe Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
