History of Halloween
Trick or Treat
Trick or Treating began in America around the 1920s. It wasn't called trick or treating until the 1930s. Before trick or treating there was guising.
Guising was an old practice where children would be in costumes and go door to door asking for food or money.
Costumes were originally massed produced in the 1930s.
Dressing up in costumes became popular in America around the 20th Century.
A reverend believed that you dress up in your fears to be able to conquer them.
Halloween has many religious influences such as Christianity and some scholars argue if it has any pagan roots as well.
With Christianity it's suppose to be a holiday for saints and the dead. Before the commercial Halloween Christians would go to graveyards to pay tribute to the ones that passed.
A similar holiday still practices this on November 1st. It is The Day of the Dead.
In the 19th century the Irish and Celtics began to migrate to America.
When they came they made Halloween a much celebrated holiday. By the 20th century everybody was celebrating Halloween.
