    It'd be an interesting social experiment, for a group of older folks to go trick or treating and take note of how many people turn them away.

    I remember people giving me a hard time when i went trick-or-treating at age 13. They still gave me candy, but I heard a few "aren't you too old for this?"

    I think it comes down to the fact that people like giving candy to cute kids not annoying teens.


    I'll add that the older the trick-or-treaters are the more likely it LITERALLY becomes TRICK-or-TREAT.

    It can be intimidating for strangers to open their doors to teens they don't know--they're kind of unknowns. There can be an element of danger, or at least a seeming element of danger/risk. Not to mention, Halloween candy is freaking expensive even when it's just little kids who are trick are treating. On the other hand, dressing up and getting candy is fun no matter what your age. I would say the compromise would be for teens to only trick or treat at the houses of people they know, and make sure they're recognizable in their costumes.

    No old is too old, buuuut don't push it if people don't want to give you anything or open their doors, and be prepared to be considered either very weird or very frightening.

    We don't have Halloween here, instead children trick or treat here on the sixth of January, during Epiphany. I've never been allowed to trick or treat, because my family wasn't christian. I was so jealous of the other kids. They could all dress up like little kings, sings songs for strangers and get candy for it while I had to sit inside all day.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    They are trying to ban anyone 15 or older from trick or treating in my city. I say trying because it's really hard to figure out someone's exact age when they show up at your door in a costume.... What are people gonna do....Ask for their ID? Isn't it easy enough to just lie and say I'm 12 I don't have one.

    I think it's ridiculous, if someone wants to throw on a costume and get free candy, more power to them. Oh yeah... And if they want to walk door to door, at least they are getting a workout. My freshman year of high school, we opened the front door to a 6'7" pink bunny. It was the senior who lived down the street from me. After I stopped laughing I gave him some candy. If someone of that size can walk around in a pink bunny costume, he deserves some candy!

    I was never allowed to trick or treat because my family WAS christian, and "didn't want to promote devil worship by celebrating the night of the damned" or some crap like that. (I was actually not even allowed to participate in making witches/black cat/etc decorations in school.) And there was probably a healthy dose of stranger danger contributing too, even if supervised because you know everyone gets poisoned candy and razor blades.

    The first time I was allowed to go was when I put my foot down - grade 7 - maybe early teens? It was around the time when everyone else was getting "too cool" to trick or treat. I only went maybe 3 times, the last time I was about 16 (I definitely felt I was getting too old, and was getting told that a lot, too). I guess I probably did better without the candy but I would've been so sad if a law meant I could never go trick or treating because my parents were crazy when I was younger. It sucked to see everyone get free candy at school for weeks - though to their credit, my parents did buy us a bit of candy when it went on sale the next day - but it wasn't the same.

    I don't understand this. I've never been afraid of a trick or treater, even when we lived in a more urban area and a real possibility existed and I'm happy to give candy to older kids as well as little ones. I also don't understand the churches providing an alternative to it in parking lots where you decorate a car. Go trick or treating WITH you children. If you think some houses are questionable, don't go to them. If you are religious and don't approve of celebrating the pagan harvest holiday....how is doing it at a church acceptable?
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
