Trick or Treating - History and Origin

Trick or Treating came from All Soul’s Day(also known as Hallows Eve) parades in early England. The poor citizens of England would line up on the sides of the street as the richer members of the community paraded by and threw them pastries called soul cakes. The starving citizens would accept these cakes in exchange for praying for the richer class’s dead family members.
