The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowingrepparttar spirit world to intermingle withrepparttar 109312 living. “Trick or treat” is innocent fun to relish onrepparttar 109313 Halloween Day. It comes fromrepparttar 109314 catholic tradition of eating and giving soul cakes on Halloween.  People would walk from village to village begging for "soul cakes," made out of square pieces of bread with currants. The more soul cakesrepparttar 109315 beggars would receive,repparttar 109316 more prayers they would promise to say on behalf ofrepparttar 109317 dead relatives ofrepparttar 109318 donors. Atrepparttar 109319 time, it was believed thatrepparttar 109320 dead remained in limbo for a time after death, and that prayer, even by strangers, could expedite a soul's passage to heaven. The Jack-o-lantern custom comes from Irish folklore.  Wearing costumes comes fromrepparttar 109321 days when Celtic villagers would dress up in ghoulish costumes and noisily paraded around, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten away spirits looking for bodies to possess. Halloween party supplies like paper plates, napkins, and cups are a nice way to complete a Halloween Party Theme.  Halloween decorations like pumpkin piñatas as a centerpiece, can also double as party prizes. Party favors like Halloween stickers or glow jewelry fit a Halloween Party Theme.
