I seem to recall this was also the impetus for changing Daylight/Standard time from the last weekend in October to the first weekend in November - allow for an extra hour of Trick or Treat.

I don't think it was for an extra hour of Trick or Treat, but so it's more daylight while the Trick-or-Treaters are out and about. Makes them a little more visible.
