Scottish and Irish immigrants to North America brought guising and souling with them, but young people began to prefer pranks over performing. By the 1920s, these pranks were starting to cause serious damage to property. The increasing violence of the “tricks” led to the more organized practice of trick or treating.

Not very organised in our part of East London. The older roaming tricksters were keen on throwing eggs for several years.

The egging is another popular thing that kids do, as well. That can be very damaging, especially on a car’s finish and paint job. Doesn’t do wonders on the siding of a home either.
