This photo above looks like we did back in the early 1960s. My Nana made me the clown suit and I had a hobo suit too at different times. Used burnt cork to be a beard on our faces too. My sister had a really cool costume of Zorro!
We took to the neighborhood streets and the number of kids and dressed up parents were enormous. A huge mob moving through and running up to each house.
Trick-or-treating is a Halloween ritual custom for children and adults in many countries. Children in costumes travel from house-to-house, asking for treats with the phrase "Trick or treat".
The "treat" is usually some form of candy, although in some cultures money is used instead. The "trick" refers to a threat, usually idle, to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given.
Of course, we got to wear costumes to school!! Not anymore..no fun at school allowed!
Trick-or-treating usually occurs on the evening of October 31. Some homeowners signal that they are willing to hand out treats by putting up Halloween decorations outside their doors; others simply leave treats available on their porches for the children to take freely.
