Trick or treating: how old is too old?

By: Haley Shaffer [Vox Executive Editor]

Halloween is the scariest day of the year. Most people celebrate it by passing out candy at their house, watching movies, or dressing up. For little kids, trick or treating is how they spend their night. But at what age does trick or treating come to an end?

Some people have a strong opinion that once someone hits a certain age, they should not trick or treat anymore. Going from house to house, pleading for candy, while dressed in some crazy costume is something that just seems childish. Yet, some teens still enjoy the tradition. The majority of teens don’t trick or treat, but everyone should have the right to trick or treat if they want. No matter what age someone is, everyone loves candy and having fun. Trick or treating is a nice combination of both! Although it’s understandable that parents think that their candy should be given out to young children who thoroughly enjoy the holiday, and not teens who at the end of the day just want candy, everyone is entitled to celebrate the holiday however they want. There is no death date for trick or treating. It’s simply a fun, exciting, way to spend Halloween, and get candy too. Yes, trick or treating was made for children, but that doesn’t mean teens can’t enjoy it too.

Halloween is here and trick or treaters with be filling the streets tonight. Most will be young children with their parents, but some will be those crazy teens that just can’t seem to get enough of the holiday.
