Ok so IM 16 and im going trick or treating this year and I was just wondering what the average age to stop trick or treating was? Now please dont picture me as a clueless loser, i mean im partially still trick or treating because of the mere humor out of it, i mean a 16 year old who still trick or treats?! thats ludicrous!...isnt it?

But yea what does everyone think the average age to stop trick or treating is?
Or what age did you stop trick or treating at?
If you do things right, then people won't know if you've done anything at all.

I'm 24 and still trick or treat... sort of. My version mostly involves beer and inappropriate gestures.

I see a LOT of teens out trick or treating. If you enjoy it, then do it.
Happy Halloween!

Both grandkids first Halloween so you know Grandma has to dress them up and show them off. I'll be with them and will graciously accept a beer when offered :thumbsup:
The only thing that irks me with the older ones that come around is when they shove the bag in your face, don't say anything like "trick or treat" and don't say thank you. If they do, I don't care how old they are. Have fun

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

I agree with the "If you like it, continue to do it" comments. That's how I feel. I stopped trick-or-treating when I was about 16/17 and not necessarily because I wanted to stop, but because my mom wouldn't help me out. I'm 22 and I don't trick-or-treat, but I would still dress up if any kids came to my house. I know a lot of people trick-or-treated until they graduated high school.

As garmanma said, if you say "trick-or-treat" and "thank you", most people who hand out candy won't mind how old you are. I think there will always be those people who think that if you are over the age of 8, they will think you are too old to do it, but as far as I'm concerned I think it's a holiday for those who want to enjoy themselves and have fun, and of course want a little candy. So, you keep doing it as long as you have fun doing it. :thumbsup:

Make sure you have a costume too! I'm not going this year, last year was my last time. I'm 15 now and I use to think it was fun, but it kind of sucks around here because its always raining on Halloween and like 40 degrees out. Not very pleasant. Halloween is still really fun and at school we usually have some parties and the day might be a little bit easier. Have fun trick or treating!

Here in OZ it's 3pm on Halloween.I have about 1 hrs peace and then all hell breaks loose.LOL. Normally about 40 to 50 groups of 4 or 5 trick or treaters come pounding on my door at about 2 minute intervals.3 or 4 groups are OK,but not when it goes well into the night.
Who thought this up???? :thumbsup:

LOL DSTM, I agree. We never did this in Germany until a few years ago. We generally have "St.Martin's."

Last year I had 3 groups of kids coming around. They where pretty greedy :flowers: . I did buy some candy for tonight, as I know there is atleast one kid in our house and he will most likely ring all 10 flat parties in our building to the door asking for "trick or treat." (Hope non of the neighbour kids will come, as I dont have that much sweets at home :thumbsup:
