On Halloween, kids
dress up in costumes 4) that
are often scary and go "Trick or Treating." They usually form a small
group and visit many houses, ringing the doorbell at each house. When the owner
approaches, all the kids say "TRICK OR TREAT!"
The homeowner gives them candy, and they move to the next house.
Common costumes are
ghosts, skeletons, witches, and vampires. Smaller children may wear outfits that
are not scary, such as a bunny, mouse, or their favorite cartoon character.
Since trick or
treating takes place at night, and often involves knocking on the doors of
strangers, safety is a concern. Parents or other relatives usually escort young
children. If parents are concerned about safety or if the weather is bad, they
may bring their children to indoor parties instead of going trick or treating
outside. In the past, homeowners gave out homemade treats, like cookies and
caramel apples 6). But most people now give away store candy in
sealed wrappers for safety. With a
few simple precautions, millions of kids have a safe and fun Halloween every
