How old is too old when it comes to trick or treating???October 31st, 2013 at 12:03 AM #1299
I’d say you’re never too old! However, society might have a different opinion on that.
I think anyone of any age, considering they’re still in good walking health would have fun trick or treating, but we all know how most would react to a 40-year-old for example walking up to their door saying trick or treat, they’d likely give them a piece of candy quickly and close the door or refuse.
I think for those of us that have children that’s about the only way to “safely” enjoy the tradition anymore.
To put it in a number, probably 13 is close to the social cut-off.November 2nd, 2013 at 7:26 PM #1350
I hate to restrict Trick-or-Treating but if you are over 4.5 feet tall maybe you are too old (even if you are only 11 or 12). We had some pretty tall and scary (full mask or hockey mask) “kids” at our door and some of them scared me. If I had been alone I would not have answered the door.November 3rd, 2013 at 1:31 AM #1361
Haha, I’ve certainly scared a few parents in my day.November 10th, 2013 at 3:58 AM #1421

I’ve trick or Treated in my late teens/ early 20s and only had a couple ppl question my worthiness of their candy. Personally I get a little nervous when a group of teenagers are out trick or treating nut I wouldn’t refuse them candy. I think if you put in a good effort to get dressed up for trick or treating then you deserve some candy. Teenagers that think they are tool cool to dress up but not too cool to beg for candy are lame and should stay home. When you’re dressed up it’s trick or treating, when you’re not then it’s begging.October 26th, 2018 at 9:39 AM #32704
What Black said. If you’re rather short, you can just cover up your face to trick or treat. I sometimes go out with my nieces for that nostalgic feeling.
