    A trick or treater over the age of 12 is too old to be trick or treating.
    They should participate in Halloween parties and give out candy to the little kids.
    I’m a child at heart, but I can’t see myself trick or treating in high school.
    The important thing is to keep the spirit of the holiday in your heart and spread it to others.

    Why on Earth would you set an age limit for that? My friends and I trick or treated when we were in high school. Now I live in Scottsdale, AZ and get older trick or treaters all the time. Another ridiculous law that wasn’t needed.

    Let kids be kids! Why is everyone so trying to make kids grow up so fast these days? I loved trick or treating until the age 16. These kids could be out doing way worse things that they shouldn’t be doing! Why stop them from doing something so innocent?

    Would we rather be drinking and doing drugs?
