Trick or Treat meaning

Recommended Posts

How do you interpret Trick or Treat?

I always took it as the kid giving an ultimatum, give me a treat or I'll give you a trick. However over the weekend I overheard someone talking about buying some lemons to hand out as tricks. They interpreted it as the kid giving you a choice, give me a trick or give me a treat.

I asked my wife and she agrees it's the kid giving you a choice. Thought maybe it would be a south thing, however, her brother sees it as the ultimatum like me.

You give kids lemons, you're just asking for some serious retaliation, at the least some shaving cream all over your car, maybe a smashed pumpkin, or a roll of toilet paper draped all over the place.

This year, not a single little vamp came to my door. (Usually, we welcome around 200, and stock up on treats with that in mind.)
