Fully grown adults going trick or treat

I have an ex co-worker on my facebook page who just proudly posted that she went trick or treat. This girl is 26 years old and went with a few other people, all age 20 and up, none of them have children. "You're never too old for free candy". I even saw a few groups of people that were about the same age when I was out with my son. I thought this was something for children, not adults with full time jobs.

Why do you care? Did it affect you? Cost you money? Time? Dignity?

I stayed home since I can't keep up ... I'm 37 weeks. I always look to see first before opening the door. I guess it is habit. There were 2 adult men in black t- shirts and masks. Scared the crap out of me! They had like pillow cases they were using. They knocked and rang the bell several times before leaving.

Not something I'd do, but no big deal to me either... It's just for fun.

I had a couple who said they had a sick kid at home.  He said it and held out a bucket I gave him some candy and then she- looked awkward but did it too.  It was odd.  That many sick kids at home -they should be there too.  It isn't about candy as the experience.  Go to the store and buy them some if they have to miss out.

I think 12 is the cutoff age.  Anyone older than that is just being ridiculous.

Preteens are fine....but it gets weird when they are old enough to drive themselves to trick or treat. We always get older teens....and they try and take the whole bowl sometimes. We have people using their backpacks to put candy in...some dont even wear costumes. Then there the couples who bring their infants who are too small to eat candy. We had a couple tonight they both asked for candy.....for one infant in the stroller! They were both dressed up to go with his costume so we gave them some. A lot of the older kids come much later so when we see they smaller kid traffic is dying out we go inside.
