Trick-or-treating?going from house to house in search of candy and other goodies?has been a popular Halloween tradition in the United States and other countries for an estimated 100 years. But the origins of this community-based ritual, which costumed children typically savor while their cavity-conscious parents grudgingly tag along, remain hazy. Possible forerunners to modern-day trick-or-treating have been identified in ancient Celtic festivals, early Roman Catholic holidays, medieval practices and even British politics.

Part of the history of Halloween is Halloween costumes.

YouGov?s BrandIndex found that the perception Target had among moms rose last year after its holiday ad aired in October, and remained elevated for nearly a month afterwards.

Another likely antecedent was the British custom, dating from the 1600s, of youths wearing masks and carrying effigies (including jack-o’lanterns carved from turnips) while begging for pennies on Bonfire Night (also known as Guy Fawkes Night), the November 5 commemoration of the so-called Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament in 1605.
