Halloween trick or treat is one of the most awaited events for kids. This has been practiced since the 1950s in the North America. Other countries such as Great Britain, Ireland and countries in Asia have followed this tradition. Two months from now kids will come knocking on your doors asking “trick or treats?” Only a few will answer trick, as it is accustomed for homeowners to prepare their goodies for those little super heroes, princesses, monsters and Disney characters.
