Trick or Treat age?
Me and my wife were wondering how old is to old to
trick or treat? Is there a certain age that is designed by law? Or
just up to the individual?
TB mumbled something like this:
Traditionally it is pre-teen (12 and under)
Roxy shared her views:
There is no age limit on Halloween. It's
up to the individual. I know lots of people who still trick or treat
and their in college but then again I know a lot who don't. I still
do! Who doesn't want free candy? Of course I don't go in a fairie
costume anymore or anything like I used to. Now its more like a
french maid or something more age appropriate. if you want to still
go trick or treating I say go for it as long as you don't care what
other people think. Which you shouldn't!
Todd responded with this:
Trick or Treat forever. As long as people give out
candy you should keep going. Many people stop giving it out to
"older" kids though. I am 16 and last year many people refused me
candy. This year I'm not going to go trick or treating. I don't
think there are any laws that set an age to trick or treating. So...
HAPPY TRICK OR TREATING!
Patti helped out with this:
You are never too old to trick or
treat!! I am 50 years old and my husband is 56 and we still dress up
in costumes and trick or treat. Its a good idea to go with your kids
and grandkids trick-or-treating. You and the kids will have a fun
time together. An adult should be there to watch that everything go's smooth...... PARTY ON!!!!!
Renae pointed this out:
if there was a law which there probably isn't there
is a big loop-hole if you have (a) young child or children because
you go trick or treating with them (most of the time right). so your
going trick or treating.
Smartie did some research and said this:
Trick or treating age is any age, as
long as there is a parent along. ("Awww, look at da wittle baby in
the pumpkin outfit! I'll just give the mommy some candy to celebrate
her adorable child.") For the child to go alone, wait until he/she
asks you if they can go with their friends, and not you (the age
varies, but if you let them it depends on your neighborhood and
whether or not there will be another parent along). If you don't
want to drag your kid along for those youngest years, hand 'em over
to some other parent who will be more than happy to eat the kid's
candy for you.
all fools night gave us this information:
there is no law against it if you are 5 and want to
trick or treat you can and you can if you are 99 you can, age is not
a factor it is up to you yourself if you think that you are to old
to go out
P3P51 muttered this:
i know that in Virginia beach, virginia
if u are older than 13 u are not allowed to trick or treat even
though many people still choose to do so
TrivialNut reported this:
Trick or treating is designated for children ages
4-14. Though this law is not enforced or known in many areas, the
Federal Center for Holidays recognizes this day as, and I quote "A
day for children aged 4-14 to ask for candy at various homes
throughout their neighborhood, or a neighborhood that is deemed to
be fine for their trespassing. The people in homes willingly give
out candy, and therefore, no trespassing laws may be enforced on
this day." As you can see, the ages to go trick or treating are
Mr. Obvious came up with this simple answer:
Anyone can trick-or-treat, provided they are
prepared to be ridiculed by everyone around them.
jack o lantern concluded with this:
The oldest age for a person to trick or trick is 13,
Because 13 is a traditional evil number like 6. and also because 13
is already a teenager.
