How old were you the last year you Trick or Treated?

I think I had just turned 13 and I hadn't been in a couple of years, so my friend and I decided to go one last time. I had so much fun that year. I scared the crap out of this guy that was like 5-7 years older than me, because he started picking on us really bad, and got kind of physical. He kept calling me a whore and shoving me back into this rusty old wire fence. I was in boots, so I dug them into the mud to stop myself, braced myself with my hand on his shoulder's and kneed him so hard that he rose about 6 inches off the ground (he towered over me and weighed at least 70lb more than me). I'm not one to go for violence, but he was seriously hurting and scaring me, and he'd been warned lol.

We got SO much candy that year lol.

    I had really waffled that year, about whether to go or not.
    But I wanted one last year, so I dressed in black, with eyeliner 'cat whiskers' and
    a pair of 'ears', and out I went.

    Went okay til some old biddy said to me 'aren't you getting to old to do this?'
    Completely broke my heart, and I went home sobbing. (I was a sensitive kid)

    I knew it was time to quite, but I wanted one last hurrah, so to speak, and she
    ruined it for me. I have never forgotten it. (obviously)

  • I think I was 13 or 14. I had younger siblings, so I always had a group to make me look younger. However, I technically went my first year of college - my roomies and I took a friend and his little sister. We didn't ask for candy... we just wanted to show off our costumes. We ended up with plenty of people telling us to "take a little something too". I think we got as much junk as our little friend!

  • 15. My friend and I threw together the most ridiculous costumes and went around the neighborhood. I'm pretty sure people were more focused on the seriously crazy outfits we had on more so than the fact we were way too old to be trick or treating lol.
