Many across the nation wonder the question, “How old is too old to trick-or-treat?”  I asked a few of my class members and peers just how old they thought that magic number is.  This was a very controversial topic between everyone I will have to say, but most of us finally agreed that the age 16 was too old.  A few said the age of 18, a few said that you’re never too old, and a few said that once you hit high school you shouldn’t be trick or treating anymore.  I personally lean more towards once you get into high school, you’re too old.  Everyone has their own opinion though, and everyone’s opinion is different.  This is completely okay.  If you enjoy Trick-or-Treating, don’t care what others think, and go out and have fun! Happy Trick-or-Treating and be safe always!
