In The middle ages,
Kids and adults would dress up in costumes
They would go house to house
Offering a song and prayer
In exchange of food or money.
This was called hallowmas and was celebrated in the middle of fall and winter.

Today,
We look at this holiday
And think of kids dressing up in costumes
On october 31st,
Going house to house asking for candy using the phrase “trick-or-treat”.
People spend up to $6 billion alone annually in the U.S alone
With that money they spend it on candy for the trick-or-treaters,decorations or costumes.
