Simple enough question - how old is too old for Trick or Treating?
Thanks in advance for your answers!
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.
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).
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.
Just gives me another reason to write.
