We may all live in a great big global community, but in my Blog, it's my world.

Simple enough question - how old is too old for Trick or Treating?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Don't everyone rush to answer (just kiddin', just kiddin'...)  {Actually this is just a shameless l'il old forum bump}

You are too old for Trick or Treating the year you stop wearing a costume to go Trick or Treating. After that, you're out forever, even if you decide to wear a costume.

Barring that, 19, or 24 if you're a college student. IRS rules.

4 minutes, and someone was just about to bump you anyway. Lame! You're too old for trick-or-treating when you unneccessarily bump a post.

Heh, I'm glad someone saw the article fairly quickly, though articles don't always show up in the sidebar, which is part of what inspires that forum bumpage.

Regardless, thanks for the answer to the question.  Still hoping for several more as this topic is up for discussion in my household with some argument back and forth between myself and my wife.

Usually I categorically avoid any article with intentional forum bumping (which includes every article you've ever written ever, terp ), but I digress.

12.

That's it, man; when you're twelve, you're done. At least that's how my parents did it and how I'll do it when my kids approach that age.

Because, I'll be straight - few things piss me off more than the fifteen-year-old trick or treater. Go to a party, rondos.

What if I dressed up as a Missionary and went door to door handing out pamphlets? Do you think anyone would give me candy?

Dude, you can get a LOT of candy (and other stuff), even in March.

I know, because I did it for two years.

12, maybe 13 at the oldest.

Hey, I'm almost 40 and I still get all dolled up and go trick ot treating.  It's not for the candy; I don't carry a bucket with me and expect to get sweeties by the handful (although I'm short enough to pass for a kid especially when I'm wearing a mask)....for me, it's all about dressing up and being scary.  You have to understand that I didn't get to do this as a kid in the UK so I'm making uo for lost time.

Since we came here in '04, I've successfully made at LEAST three children cry when I got dressed up and took my young-un's out trick ot treating.  The first time I was a zombie, the second a Werewolf, and since the zombie got more cries of terror, it'll be the zombie again this year.  I LOVE it. I ADORE being able to put fake skin on  and have it looking like it's decaying and hanging off my face; I love having nails that look like I've dug my way out of the grace and teeth that are blood stained and green  It's so much fun and I wish that other people would do it. 

So, to answer your question:  You are NEVER too old.  EVER.

Heh, when you generalize, you...  never mind.

There's more than a few articles out there that I've done and never bothered to post a reply to (nor gotten any replies to).

Terp... almost all of your articles have the second half in the comments.

Matter of preference and trying to think about what users might expect if they visit my blog.

I'm about to waste an article on the topic there, so feel free to comment there.

And why do we care so much?

It's his blog, after all.


I don't care, I was giving him grief. Hopefully he took it in good nature.

Just gives me another reason to write.
