Trick or Treat in Spanish is Truco o Trato - Spanish Translation of Trick or Treat | Spanish Halloween Vocabulary
How to Say Trick-or-Treat in Spanish | Halloween Vocabulary in Spanish

October 30, 2020

The Spanish translation of "trick-or-treat" is "truco o trato", pronounced as "troo-koh oh trah-toh" even though "treat" doesn't exactly mean "trato" in Spanish.

The way people really say certain things in certain situations may be different than the exact translation of words. In this case, the exact translation of "treat" in Spanish would be "dulces" or "golosinas" depending on the country but it's not very common to hear someone say "truco o dulces" on Halloween.
