Halloween game Trick or treat

The custom of trick-or-treating originated from the pagan belief that ghosts would cause trouble for the living during their annual visit to earth. In order to protect themselves from evil spirits, people dress up in costumes that look like ghosts and prepare bread, eggs, apples and other foods as offerings for good luck. People wear masks and ghostly clothes that confuse the spirits and go from house to house to collect offerings. The generous people light up the lights and receive good wishes, but the stingy ones are threatened.

The goblins and demons in face makeup and strange costumes dance around, and Halloween costumes, with 10,000,000 faces, are not just monotonous big ghosts and little kids. The production of the simplest ghost costume on a white sheet on top of the head, gouge two holes to stay out of the eyes; if you want to play the magician, wear black clothes and black pants, then wear a black bowler hat, and between the bowler hat and the top of the head to hide a fluffy bunny spare; children dressed in white clothes and white pants, and then tied a flashlight on the back in the head dressed as a little angel; there are also parents dressed up as their children's favorite cartoon image
