When should kids stop Trick-or-Treating

Posted by GoGo Goodie on November 02, 2012.

Back to the Goodie Bag business because another Halloween is in the books!  But every Halloween night I'm always surprised how many older teens go trick-or-treating and usually without much of a costume!  We even counted five adults trick-or-treating without kids!  So, that begs the question, how old is too old for trick-or-treating?  

For me I have a sliding rule for the answer, if an older teen (say 15 years old or more) has a good costume then I'm fine, but if little or no effort goes into the costume then I don't like to see them trick-or-treating.  But anyone older than 17, good costume or not, I think they have overstayed their trick-or-treat welcome!

Sound off and let us know your thoughts!
