The practice of trick or treating stems from an ancient custom where poor folk would dress up in costume and in exchange for prayers for the dead, they would ask for food or money. This custom was brought with immigrants to America and gained renewed popularity in the early half of the 20th century. Initially trick or treating was actually an act of mild mischief, thus the term "trick or treat." There was a small bit of coercion going on as kids begged for treats, insinuating at the same time that if they weren't given an appropriate treat, a mild act of mischief or vandalism might be perpetuated on the homeowner.
