“Trick or candy!”
“Trick or treat!”
That’s the shout you’ll hear when you open the door on Halloween, which falls on October 31 every year. Of course, no one asked for “tricks” and sweets were immediately given to the sweet children along with their cute and scary costumes.
However, it seems that this year’s Halloween celebration will not be so festive, considering the world is facing a new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic that is forcing everyone to stay at home. The origins of the Halloween tradition can be traced back to the history of the Celts, a pagan people who inhabited Great Britain and Northern France since 2,000 years ago. According to the Gaelic calendar they use, the new year falls on November 1, while on October 31, the Celts celebrate the Samhain/Calan Gaeaf celebration.

Trick or Treat and Halloween Tradition
1. Do a dance to ask for food or candy
Most experts attribute trick-or-trick to the practice of mumming in Europe, where participants don costumes and go door-to-door then perform choreographed dances, songs, and games in exchange for prizes. According to Celebrating The Family, Elizabeth Pleck, this tradition arose in America, where it often occurs on Thanksgiving.
In some early versions of the trick-or-treat, men parade door to door, and boys often follow, asking for coins. Most of these early trick-or-treats were done by those who really needed the money, but the rich kids got in on the fun too.
Door-to-door visiting was largely discontinued in the 1930s, but re-emerged in that century to distract children from making fun of Halloween.
2. In the past, people who celebrated Halloween wore animal skins and heads
According to ancient Roman records, the tribes located in Germany and France traditionally wore costumes of animal heads and skins to connect with the spirits of the dead. This tradition continues into the celebration of Samhain Day, the Celtic holiday that inspired Halloween in America.
