Halloween (Introduction and Origin)
In the early 20th century, Irish and Scottish groups revived the ancient international custom of “guising,” someone might dress in costume and tell a funny story, recite a poem, or carry out some other trick in exchange for a piece of fruit or another treat. This led to trick-or-treating, in which children dress up and ask neighbors for treats, becoming popular in the United States. Trick-or-treating for candy had become one of Halloween’s most well-known traditions by 1950.
