Wut wuuuuuut it’s time for another Tidbit Tuesday!
I had a discussion the other day with my coworkers about how we trick-or-treated. There was talk of plastic orange pumpkins, shopping bags, and pillowcases (my weapon of choice). One girl even used a McDonald’s Happy Meal box. Then we talked about how awesome candy is and everyone should eat candy all the time and then not get obese and die.
But why do we trick-or-treat for candy on Halloween? Where did that tradition start? When did it start? Why candy?
Well, it started in America. To understand why it started we need to talk a little about the beginning of Halloween in North America. Very, very briefly.
