  • Never. If you're 35 and come to my house in costume, I will gladly give you candy. There is no age limit on fun!

  • I think too old is when the child thinks they shouldn't be going anymore. Some adults go trick or treating and they look like they are enjoying themselves. Some of the costumes I've seen are pretty creative too.

  • I did this as a poll a while back...

  • I don't think you can hit an age to be too old. Our older daugter had a friend who wasn't allowed to trick or treat after 4th grade.

  • I agree with Sabrina. I personally feel weird trick-or-treating, but that's one of the many (many many many) reasons I'm glad I have my daughter. Gives me an excuse to get free candy!!!

  • Never. My aunt fell out when my son wanted to at like 6. I say too old is when you are dead, then, we will be celebrating you that day. LOL

  • High School. Period. I am not going to state and age since kids reach high school are various ages.

  • I believe the kids are too old when they feel they are too old! But we will see how I feel once my son arrives lol!

  • If you have on a costume then it doesn't matter. I think parents that are with kids should get treats.
