Halloween Masquerade 25/10/21


As for the trick or treating, or “guising” (from “disguising”), traditions, beginning in the Middle-Ages, children and sometimes poor adults would dress up and go around door to door during Hallowmas begging for food or money in exchange for songs and prayers, on behalf This was called “souling” and the children were called “soulers”. Souling ultimately gave rise to guising in the U.K. starting in the 19th century, with children dressing up and begging for things like fruit and money. To earn these treats, they’d often tell jokes, sing songs, play an instrument, recite a poem. Trick or treating instead of guising on Halloween popped up in North America in the 1920s and 1930s. Halloween’s popularity saw a huge spike and within five years trick or treating had spread throughout North America. Trick or treating has since spread to the U.K., beginning around the 1980s. It is now a very popular custom where children in costumes travel from house to house, asking for treats with the phrase "Trick or treat".
