Giving out candy to costume wearing Trick-or-Treaters wasn't always a Halloween tradition. Trick-or-Treating didn't become an American tradition until the 1920s, but giving out pre-packaged fun size candy bars wasn't until the razor blade panic of the 1970s. As for children going door to door, that tradition has been around since the Middle Ages.
