    The last time I went trick-or-treating, I was 19, but I am short so it wasn’t too apparent :]. But I believe any older than 14 is too old.

  2. Kirsten Says:

    As old as you have the nerve to do it…I am not denying anyone candy who knocks at my door.

  3. Sarah J. Says:

    Never too old, as long as someone isn’t rude about asking for for the treats!

  4. Erin Ashworth Says:

    I think you can trick or treat as long as you are still not too embarassed to wear a costume.

  5. Jo James Says:

    According to my kids, 13 is too old. But as long as you’re wearing a costume and come to my door, you’re getting candy :)

  6. Beth B Says:

    i believe 13 is too old, unless of course you are trick or treating for unicef :)

  7. Jamie C. Says:

    I live in a very small, rural community. It is generally accepted that even the HS students trick or treat…of, course they are usually taking younger siblings or neighborhood kids so the parents can stay home and pass out candy!

  8. rick casolari Says:

    I think through Jr High is fine, when they enter HS then it is time to stop

  9. Shauna Says:

    16 unless taking siblings

  11. Shannon Dodge Says:

    you’re only as old as you feel! so if you feel like trick or treating, do it! :)

  12. Erin Ashworth Says:

    You have to be in a costume to trick or treat. If you meet that criteria, feel free to ring the doorbell. It works best when you come with kids, though. :-)

  13. Anne Lehnick Says:

    I think once you hit your teen years and you’re not willing to put on a costume, you should stop trick or treating.

  14. Ashley LLloyd Says:

    Well I believe as long as it’s done respectfully 18 beacause now your an adult. Me personally I was little do I got to go longer than my friends. I gave it up at twelve I didn’t eat the candy so no point in going

  15. Kathy Says:

    I’d say that 18 is the age to stop trock-or-treating, but you are never too old to dress up and have fun! This is the one time every year in which you can be someone other than yourself and just let loose and be whatever you want. Although I was never really into going door to door asking for candy, I have always loved dressing up and being with friends and family to share ghost stories, and play Halloween games!

  16. Chelle Says:

    My mom made me stop once I was 12. I was so mad because all of my friends got to keep going. I would have to say 8th grade is probably the limnit for our family. I’m not in a position to limit the age yet so it’s a tough question to answer. I think Halloween is awesome so I don’t know if I would put a limit to celebrating, but maybe just a limit to going door to door asking for treats.

  17. Dusten Says:

    I remember going once I was in middle school (13 years old or so) but I felt like a moron. I think that’s probably a good time to stop (or just before then).

  18. Robin O Says:

    I would like to say one is never too old, but, honestly, I think that once kids are in high school that is the limit!

  19. Alea Shinn Says:

    I think trick or treating should be for young kids. In my opinion, 8th grade should be the last year you trick or treating. I think once you get into high school, you should do Halloween parties or other fun activities. I don’t like seeing high school kids pushing past younger kids and not really watching out for them as they run down the street door to door with most of them not in costume.
    The only exception is if you are taking younger siblings or younger kids who have no one else to take them.

  20. Rebecca O Says:

    I agree with others who said 8th grade. Kids are about 13 after that parties or high school events. The only exception is if they are lucky enough to be babysitting!

  21. Yvette Rogers Says:

    My kids all think you should stop trick or treating at age 20!! A little old in my eyes but shows their enthusiasm. ( they are ages 6,10 and 12)

  22. Michelle L Says:

    I don’t think you are ever too old to trick-or-treat… most kids stop around 16- but then there are Halloween parties… Then once you have kids you get to kind of do it again! :)

  23. rosanne Says:

    my 17 year old still like trick-or-treating lol …. if him and his friends are willing to dress up they are welcome to go

  24. beth Says:

    16-17 (up through highschool).

  25. Kevin Says:

    Probably around 13

  26. Amber Saxby Says:

    as long as you make an effort to show spirit and dress up, I think it’s okay. It’s the kids that show up in street clothes that get rejected from me!

  27. monica Says:
