Tradition of Trick or Treating

Tradition of Trick or Treating

Trick or Treating dates back to the time of "Souls Day Parades" in England. During this time the poor would go around begging for food. People would give them pastries called "Soul Cakes." In return for the food the Poor would pray for the families dead relatives. The tradition was called, " going a-souling" which was eventually taken up by children.
