If you you open the door on October 31th you probably will face some spooky creatures yelling “trick or treat”.
The phrase is a subtle suggestion that if a treat (like candy) is given, then the child will not perform a “trick” (mischief) on the owner of the house. This popular Halloween custom has its origins in the ancient practices of “souling” and “guising.”
Our cute little golden ghost with its big pumpkin is a peaceful creature, which becomes a friend and an ally of the children and a perfect gift. Times when ghosts were considered to be horrible creatures that make children’s hearts beat faster are over.
Nevertheless you better get yourself prepared for your Halloween guests and top up your stock of sweets!
