How Old Is Too Old To Trick Or Treat?
I remember when I was about 12 years old; I went trick or treating with a friend of mine who was a year younger then me. We went to a house where this woman who, mind you wasn’t the friendliest of people, said “Don’t you think you’re a little too old to be trick or treating Teri?” This really bothered me, seeing as though there were lots of other kids my age who were trick or treating, and I was only 12 years old. Was I too old?
I see a number of kids every Halloween that vary in age, some are the little tikes all decked out in their best costumes, looking so adorable. Then there are some kids who show up at my door who, I’m guessing are at least 16 or 17 years of age, but I’d never say anything to them, I figure that hey, they might be teenagers but they’re still kids, and they should enjoy being a kid as long as they can.
But still the question remains, how old is too old for a kid to be trick or treating? What’s your opinion?
