Additional Information

“How’s tricks?” is an idiom used to informally greet someone and to ask how they are. Additionally, “tricks” plays into the term “trick or treat”. “Trick or treat” was first documented in print in the Lethbridge Herald on November 4, 1927, in reference to youthful mischief-makers demanding sweet treats post good-natured mayhem making.
