Halloween isn’t complete without knocks on the door, candy, and children yelling, “Trick or treat?”
It is the carnival where children of all ages knock on your door to collect trick-or-treat candy. Unlike thousands of years ago, when this practice had people bolting their doors on this day, you cannot keep your door shut for an extended period of time on Halloween in the present era.
But how trick-or-treating became a tradition? According to the fifth edition of Holiday Symbols and Customs, it was common in England as early as the 16th century for the poor to go begging on All Souls’ Day, and children gradually took over the custom. It was common at the time to gift youngsters “soul cakes” with crosses on top in exchange for prayers on their behalf. Later, it became popular in the 1800s, when Irish American immigration boomed.
In the 19th century, “tricks” like shaking windows and tying doors shut were frequently designed to appear as though supernatural forces had conjured them. Some folks distributed sweets as a deterrent to pranksters who might cause havoc by removing farm equipment and reassembling it on a rooftop. Furthermore, the fast expansion of suburban communities made it easier than ever for children to wander from house to house, which fostered the tradition’s rise.
Coming back to our list, these Trick-or-Treat jokes teach children a lot about humor and can even motivate them to share happiness and make hilarious Halloween jokes when they grow up and have youngsters trick-or-treating at their doors. Humor and jokes are also ideal for parties and family gatherings such as Halloween. You can set up a game with prizes and have the kids tell jokes that will have everyone in stitches.
