History Tuesday: As Halloween approaches, do you wonder where Trick-or-treating began? In the Middle Ages, poor children would go begging for food or money In return for these gifts, they would sing songs or say prayers on behalf of the dead The term “trick or treat” was coined in 1927 Children would demand treats with the (amusing) threat of a trick. Tricks usually consisted of moving gates, wagon wheels, barrels, etc. Tricks eventually were so damaging that in the 1930s communities formed trick or treating traditions. This practice was put on hold during the world wars because of sugar rationing. This year, if you want to help keep your littles (and you!😉) digesting all those sweets without a tummy ache, you’ll need to grab some Tummy too!
