Symbols of Halloween:
Jack-O-lanterns were traditionally carried by people dressed up on Halloween to frighten the evil spirits. There is a popular Irish Christian folktale associated with the jack-o-lantern, which in lore is said to represent a soul who has been denied entry into both heaven and hell.
Trick refers to "threat" to perform mischief on the homeowners on their property if no treat is given.
