Halloween - A Seasonal Treat or Trick?

A rather confused thought about Halloween - Why entice ghosts with sweets?

As I was walking along this Hallows eve dressed as some headless man with a chimp in a pumpkin out-fit on my shoulder and my little sister moaning because you couldn't see her tail properly, or that people were being stingy with sweets, a thought occurred to me...

Pumpkins are carved and placed outside doors on Halloween night to ward-off evil spirits like skeletons, ghosts, devils and witches, so why on earth do little children dress up like these things, then wander around the streets late at night; knocking on strangers' doors; where they are welcomed with handfuls of sweets...

I may not be an evil spirit, but I do love sweets...
