How Old Is Too Old To Do Trick Or Treating?

DancerDancer Bog Off Justine!Posts: 5,929 Part of The Furniture
I was wondering what age everyone thinks should be the cutoff age for doing trick or treating. My mum wouldn't let me go after 11 years old (well last year I was busy that night and my mum just bought me 2 tubs of sweets for myself- nobody came over.)

I'm a fruit loop. 🍊➰

There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Depends on who youre going with

    you can go trick or treating if you have kids obviously and just join in lol and cause obviously need someone to come. So no age limit in that sense. But i feel like if not with anyone any younger than 12 and its like begging

    It's just a bit of fun tbh. There is no age limit, go out and enjoy yourself. Great way to build relationships with the community and get to know neighbors tbh. 
    With youths labelled as thugs and all that crap, trick or treating is a positive and productive thing and just shows not all youths are bad.

    I get well pissed off when teenagers come to the door by themselves begging. Lol maybe just me.

    I'm sure anyone would much rather teens knocking for a couple sweets, over having their houses egged and floured lol

    Why does it have to be one or the other? Like stay in and buy your own sweets. Leave the sweets to the actual kids

    You are classed as a child till the age of 18 :) anyone has the right to go trick or treating. I did until a late age and many actually enjoyed having conversations with us when we stopped by their houses.

    For me my mum doesnt let me go so if you have the opportunity to, id say go for it!
    It just depends how confident you are in yourself to do it <3

    p.s. me and my sis always have a secret haloween away from our mum

    Thank you to everyone for your opinions. I am not going trick or treating this year but I am giving sweets to any trick or treaters (lollies, haribo, milkyway and stuff like that.)

    I don't necessarily think there should be an age limit for trick or treating but it feels like once someone is working or has a decent income there's not much point to it. I'm sure I'm not the only one who stopped trick or treating once I realised I could just go to the shops the day after and buy sweets on discount. Then not only do you not have to wander from house to house all night but you can pick and choose all your favourites! :yum:
