How old is too old to Trick or Treat on Halloween?
This topic came up in my house the other day, as my cousin, who’s just entered high school, planned on Trick or Treating with his friends. His mother didn’t think it was a good idea, and his father couldn’t see the issue with it.
So we asked you what you thought.
Dave Lapointe texted to say “We have always felt in my house if someone goes through the effort to get dressed up and go door to door they deserve a treat. In the case of my house my older son dresses up and takes his younger sister trick-or-treating so in my opinion there’s nothing wrong with some of the order kids being out and getting treats. Look how involved some adult Halloween party to get with elaborate decorations and costumes. Why should the kids in between that stage and being able to trick-or-treat door to door have to sit out?”.
Stuart Armstrong noted “For me it’s about effort. If you show up in a costume you put real time and attention into, then you’re walking away with some candy. However, if you show up in jeans and a hoodie wearing some cheapo mask, you’re still likely getting candy cause I don’t wanna put the effort into cleaning eggs off my house.”.
Shannon Whitehorn added on Facebook “You come to my door for candy on Halloween, I’ll give you candy. There is no age limit for enjoying life and having fun.”.
What do you think? Is there an age limit for trick or treating? Let us know in the comments below, or you can add to the original Facebook post, by clicking the link below.
