In the 1800, America started to celebrate Halloween. They wanted it to become a fun holiday. People started having parties for children and adults, They had food and dressed up in costumes. There was nothing scary about Halloween at that time. But in the 50's. Things changed. Trick or treat stated to happen. Halloween got scary. Parties were fun and people dressed up in scary costumes Today people spend billions of dollars on Halloween.. Especially on candy.

They do not celebrate Halloween very much here in Latvia. Children do get dressed up at school and young adults go party in bars. It is a shame they do not pick up on the idea of trick or treat here because there are many safe places that children would enjoy going house to house. I love seeing movies where Halloween is celebrated in small towns in the US it always looks like such fun.

I have heard that many kids don't go trick or treating anymore, instead they go "trunk or treating," which just doesn't sound like fun to me. I have noticed that less kids come to my parents' house on Halloween in recent years (I never get trick or treaters here at my apartment, so sometimes I go over there to celebrate.)
