12, unless the older brother/sister is escorting the younger siblings.

I don't care how old they are. I was called out for being too old when I was 10 because I was tall, and looked old for my age. I will NEVER call out a kid for being a kid - for that reason & because I like kids. If they are older teens - more power to them!! I'd much rather have them trick or treating at my door than running amok on the streets.

I had a fully grown woman (30's) come to my door one year. No costume... very nice.... polite.... wanting candy. I gave her a huge amount. Figured she had her reasons... and they weren't mine to question. Nor are my reasons for so doing anyone else's really.

11-12/ 9:00 pm.

I will allow middle school agers to Trick or Treat for Unicef only on Halloween. (We live in an area that allows both nights)

No age cut off just be in costume. And 9pm

Brayson87 said...

Hey if they make it past the concertina wire and punji sticks they get the candy, I don't discriminate or check the clock. But come dawn I release the Dobermanns.

WickedBee said...

I agree wholeheartedly.
There's too much shit going on in the world making kids grow up too quickly so if I can do something so small and insignificant to keep kids (teens/adults) feeling youthful, I'm in.

If you come to my door before 10pm, you'll get candy. I always have too much.

japcap said...

id say, 48 same age as me, nothing after 8.00pm

hothotheat said...

No age limit here. Some of the older ones are escorting the little ones and dressing up for them.

I'll give food anyone who comes to my door asking for food. Including critters.

LogoGirl said...

My light goes off at 9PM. I don't care what age.

David Howes said...

When my children were young, I would give (fun size) candy to everyone -- even the parents who waited patiently on the sidewalk as they guided their children through the neighborhood. (Hey, it takes energy to wrangle trick or treaters!)

Besides, I didn't want to be a victim of any teen's mischief post trick or treating!

=)

As long as there is REAL effort put into their costumes, I say any age. But 8pm cutoff time.

TVAnnie said...

Darling: I'm with you. I was tall too. I don't care how old the person is. We have candy, some adults want beer or shots. We have both. Normally, I look to the neighbors, when their light goes out, so does ours. Generally 8pm. We have a ton of decorations, my husband has skeletons, grave markers and all kinds of stuff. Our neighbors really do it up right too. Lots of fun. Our lab Sammie, greets all the families. She loves Halloween.

12. Teenagers just look like leeches trying to get free candy.

Ronaldus Magnus said...

12 and down only. 8pm cutoff if unaccompanied by an adult. 9pm with gun carrying adult.

Dahling said...

@Ronaldus M...toolazytogobackandlookatyourothernamehandlethingie

LOL

Dahling said...

@Gator LOL. Teenagers look like leeches all if the time. They are pimply, smelly, dorky wannabe hooligans! (I do happen to like the one I own - snark & all - but I may be the exception.)

I used to do regular trick or treating for years but when I was living in a very large building in NY with several neighboring high-rises, I got bombarded because the parents dropped off the kids & they would just go door to door to about 300 apts. But the thing that really pissed me off was that I worked from home & kids would start coming at 3:30. I tried many options, but what worked best for me was focusing on the kids who lived on my floor and the others who I knew in the building. I’d make goodie bags for them including pumpkin & ghost shaped cookies and different types of candy and little toys. And I’d give them to them on the 30th. They were always thrilled. On the 31st, I’d post a sign on my door, ‘baby sleeping, please do not disturb’ (no, I do not have a baby.)

I honestly think Halloween is more of a suburban holiday. People can mingle in the streets. Age cut-off: 12, Time cut-off 9.

Cee Kay said...

I think 12 should be the limit, but really I'll give candy to whoever shows up looking for it. It's cold in Alberta at the end of October, so they've earned it! The light goes off and the pumpkin comes in at 8 though.

Melody Clark said...

No age cut off. I have friends who used to trick or treat to get extra sustenance.

Time is 9:30 pm

Unknown said...

in other countries outside the U.S there is no age limit lol just doing it is painful enough

mud said...

any age. i give candy to parents & grandparents with little ones, teenagers saddled with their younger siblings, teenagers not dressed up, i'll buy candy in the store and rip it open and give it to people around me.

i've got family on the autism spectrum and both of them still want to trick or treat even though they are well into their teenage years. i don't want people to deny them candy.

MichiganMama59 said...

Any age, 9 p.m.

mercyprosperity said...

We lost our house in the suburbs. Siyonara.
I'm on a dark, country road. I wouldn't dare open the door for nobody, any time. (especially Halloween)
