  • When they stop wearing a costume and come to my door with nothing more than a Pick N Save plastic bag.

  • IDK...but I had a ton of teenage trick or treaters come to my house yesterday. I ended up running out of candy...I've never had so many kids before...I made 100 treat bags and ran out in the first hour and had to turn my light off. What made me really mad was that all the teenagers were quicker than the little ones so they ran from house to house and got all the candy before the little ones did. One group of teens in particular didn't even have costumes on. I was so mad! At least put a freakin costume on if you are going to hog all the treats.

  • As long as you are in costume, I don't care what age you are. But I'm not too fond of the teens who don't dress up, they just beg for candy.

  • I think that setting an age limit is sad. I used to work with mentally handicapped adults and they LOVED to go trick or treating. I used to set it up in advance with certain neighbors so that no one looked at us strangely.

  • I have mixed feelings on the subject because of the different activities the kids can enjoy at different ages but the door to door should be left for the kids under 13yrs is my opinion. I guess it's up to the person at the door if they give out candy to a teen. I do love to dress up myself and used to go to the parties at one time. Lol

  • I was 10 or 11 the last time I enjoyed it. Was sick the year after and passed out candy then went the year after that but felt too old. I think my 10 yo is getting to that point.
