Trivia: Which comic helped popularize trick-or-treating in the U.S. after WWII?
Dennis the Menace
Correct Answer: Peanuts
So why is this answer correct? : Trick-or-treating first gained popularity in the U.S. during the 1920s, but fell out of fashion during World War II due to sugar rationing. Many companies began trying to bring the tradition back after the war, and in 1951 three Halloween-themed “Peanuts” strips helped get people excited once again.
