Trick or Treat!

What's Halloween without trick or treating? The tradition is hundreds of years old and apparently originated in Scotland. Beggers would go from door to door asking for food or coins on All Hallows Eve (the night before All Saints Day) and in return the begger would say a prayer for the souls of that person's dead relatives. Later this changed to children asking for sweets or cake and in return they would perform a trick or sing a song. Today children ask for sweets and 'threaten' a trick if nothing is given!
Interesting, right? :)

Here's some trick or treat candy in 1:12 scale made from Polymer clay. So much fun making dollhouse miniature halloween food!
