Trick or treat! When said by children, these three words bring back a flood of childhood memories to most adults. Memories of masquerading as vampires, ghosts, witches, ghouls, monsters and fairies. Memories of parades, parties and playing “tricks,” like soaping the neighbors’ windows, “decorating” their trees with toilet tissue, sharing scary experiences or watching horror movies with family or friends.
Trick-or-treating – going from office to another office of Meycauayan College in search of candy and other goodies – has been an annual traditional of the Child Study Center and the Elementary Department. The party tagged as Mid-Year Together Party was highlighted with sing and dance presentations as the teachers and the pupils, gathered around at Dr. Jose R. Locsin Multi-Purpose Hall last October 29, 2015 wearing different Halloween masquerades.
Watching their bags fill up with all sorts of candies, apples, nuts and other goodies, in their Halloween spook costumes is so fun! So when they say trick or treat, it essentially means “give me a treat or I’ll play a trick on you”.
Hearing the words “trick or treat” from little children can cause us adults, to wish we were kids again. Right?
