    Your teacher means the origins of Halloween. Basically the name is short for All Hallows Evening. The following day being All Hallows Day or All Saints Day. It’s a christian holy day that replaced a pagan one. The idea of trick or treat is that people (adults originally) would go around the local village dressed as spirits and demand treats from the household. This was a form of sacrifice, each household would give up something of value to appease the spirits who were roaming the land at that time of year. For those who refused to give a treat, they received a trick played on them by those dressed up. This was to punish those who refused to protect the village from evil spirits by not sacrificing something of value.

    Traditional halloween celebrations involved games using apples such as bobbing for apples. Apples were considered a fruit of the underworld and to have magical properties.
    Carved turnips were put out to scare away evil spirits. When the europeans arrived in America they discovered the pumpkin and replaced the turnip with it.
