Age are you too old to trick or treat?

Asked by cdwccrn (3605points) October 31st, 2008 from iPhone

at 10 or 15 or 20 or never? Just seems that the older kids get lazy and don’t even dress in costume!

itvoar16, did you go out on this bewitching night? Are you an adult?

You should probably stop trick or treating at about 26 years old. At that age, you start to lose that teenager look.

Never. My mother is in her fifties and she went today. (Only to a few houses, and she wore a mask that covered her head completely, and took off her wedding ring so people wouldn’t be on to her, but she went.)

I’m seventeen. I went a little, but only to a few houses. I was lazy and didn’t really wear a costume, only a beaten up hat. That was wrong of me. You should wear a costume, and put a little effort into that costume, if you’re going to trick-or-treat.

i think 15. (although when i was 18 i was dressed as a witch and went to one house for fun and said trick or treat, and got a chocolate bar out of it. the chocolate bar came in handy when i got pulled over later by a cop later that night, i ate it and it took the alcohol off my breath.)

You’re never too old, it’s just that at a certain age you stop but when your dignity runs out you start up again.

I’d say around 16–17, as long as you can be classified as a kid. I think Halloween should be for everyone but trick or treating is for children…

14 is probably the limit for the thrill of the whole thing, but if someone of any age shows up in costume and says “trick or treat,” I won’t deny them.

Did you see that episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”?

At my mom’s house, if she deems you too old to be out trick or treating, she gives you an apple….at about 14 or 15, I’d say.

The “good” candy is given to the little kids.

snoopy, that’s a great idea!
