Hey i get that feeling too but I ignore it. I am a junior in high school and I still go trick or treating, and I have fun. Don't let age take away the fun stuff.

Lololol I'm 15, a sophomore in high school and I love trick or treating! I mean come on, it's free candy! I usually go trick or treating with a couple of my best friends then go to a party afterwards. Stay young as long as you possibly can!

I still rricker treat and I'm 12 my buds and i decided for fun to go with the cheesiest costumes ever were going to be bumblebees
by swan32 on 5/22/2012 7:01:30 PM
I'm 15 and I still trick or treat every year and I plan going this year too! Why do you think they make sexy costumes? They don't make those sleazy police officer dresses for 13 years olds!
by actualpain on 4/15/2012 7:09:51 PM
I've never gone trick or treating in my entire life and I'm 13
by Dancergirl30 on 4/13/2012 1:51:15 PM
Everyone on here is right. No one is too old to trick or treat. But if you still feel self concious, go with a group of friends. Then you wont be alone if some jerk answers the door and is like,"arent you too old?"
by tacomaoretaco on 4/8/2012 8:13:58 AM
Your never too old to trick- or- treat! Who cares what people think?! They are just jealous cause they don't have the courage to step up and go trick- or- treating.
by silver_wolf on 11/2/2011 8:45:38 PM
No no no! The worst thing is when people at the door look at you confused and say 'arn't you a bit too old for trick or treating?' I don't understand how someone can be too old for having fun, I think people nowadays should be happy to see older kids making the most out of their childhoods! They should complain about the 8 year olds getting botox and the 6 year olds plastering themselves in makeup and fake tan instead! Girls, go trick or treating, have fun and make the most out of halloween before it's too late, the age you are now is the youngest age your ever gonna be, I mean you can only get older. ;)
by cindy5218 on 10/27/2011 4:43:52 PM
I'm in 8th grade, 13 years old, and that isn't too old to trick or treat! Where I live, even the high schoolers and some even college students go trick or treating! some of my friends aren't trick or treating this year, but I bet they will next year, once they see what they missed out on and how many even older kids are going ;)
by oceanlover69 on 10/25/2011 10:19:22 PM
I am not going trick-or-treating this year because I am in 7th grade and I'm afraid what people might think. Don't be like me. Go for it. I have people tell me to live my own life but I'm not popular and I think trick-or-treating might put me down lower on the food chain. How about you just trust your gut on what you want to me. That's coming from a girl who never has because I'm afraid to. Don't worry, you're not like me!
by hitthemall#1 on 10/24/2011 7:21:48 PM
I am in 7th grade i went trick-or-treating last year and i went with a friend and her 26 yr old uncle dressed up and went with us he came as super man and last yr i saw a a lady who dressed up with her kids and was carrying a pillow case for her self! your never to old to trick-or-treat!
by domino1301 on 10/22/2011 11:46:11 AM
trick or treating is the best! yay candy and cheap walmart costumes!
by maiya.pup11 on 10/18/2011 2:38:25 PM
OK I'm a sophisticated moron (let's just face the facts: that is what "sophomore" means) and I am still TRICK-OR-TREATING!!!!!!!!! I agree w/ swimmerchic96: if you've got tonsa makeup or a mask on, who is gonna know? I think trick-or-treating is cool up until about age 20. Then, unless you are taking younger kids, it's kinda creepy-stalker-ish. I think it is a misconception that once someone gets to Junior High that trick-or-treating MUST END but that is just the way our parents grew up. THIS IS A NEW ERA, PEOPLE!!!! YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WAT!!!!! SO GO TRICK-OR-TREAT THE STUFFING OUT OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!!!!!!!!!
by Emerald_Sparkles on 10/18/2011 1:11:25 AM
I know college kids that go trick or treating. ya'll are fine. I didn't go last year though, but that was just because I was sick
by katie10marie96 on 10/17/2011 9:13:25 PM
How old is too old for halloween? i'm in Grade eight, can I still go this year? It'd be my last.
by Back to December on 10/17/2011 8:25:04 PM
by Back to December on 10/17/2011 8:19:20 PM
ok... no offence but, its weird that you think that just because your in 6th grade, you have to stop trick or treating! i mean come on, im in highschool and even I still trick or treat! have fun girl! go prank someone! go grabs some laughs! have a great night! Just dont have to much fun! thats my job!!! jk! luvs yall anyway. ;P <3
by tortor369 on 10/17/2011 1:19:11 AM
you're never too old to trick-or-treat..I am in 7th grade. Trust me there is no age limit you're getting free candy...who's too old for that?
by Cutesweetie2017 on 10/16/2011 5:41:01 PM
I stopped Trick-or-Treating this year and I'm a sophomore in High School. It just wasn't very fun to me and I don't need all of that candy anyway.
by CourtneyPink28 on 10/16/2011 2:36:09 PM
I go bowling with my family or friends on halloween and we all dress up, it is really fun.
by peanut0389 on 10/16/2011 2:05:47 PM
i heard that some towns have an "under 12" rule. i think that around 13 or 14 is when you should think about handing out candy instead of going out- which, btw, can be just as fun if you are in costume while doing so. what i really cant stand is the teenagers (and some creepy- and not in the good way- adults) that don't dress up but still go out (i hand out candy and save the old nasty stuff for those people). i get it if the older teen/ adult is with a little kid, but them going out for themselves? yah, um, no thank you.
by beingbek on 10/16/2011 12:59:08 PM
I'm 15 and I think I'm going to go this year, but I'm pretty tall so that kinda stinks for trick or treating.
by fallsb-ball on 10/16/2011 12:20:31 PM
by miaboo123 on 10/16/2011 9:18:56 AM
If you want to go trick-or-treating whose stopping you!?
So maybe you don't have to go around asking for candy, but you could always walk around with your buds!
by orangeache on 10/16/2011 8:29:46 AM
your never to old for trick-or-treating unless your over the age of 18
by ms.momiji on 10/16/2011 7:53:58 AM
I'm 13 and decided not to trick-or-treat this year, but I'm still going to walk around the neighborhood with my parents and little bro.
by allyson1124 on 10/16/2011 12:11:15 AM
junior high? are you kidding? my sister is 19 and she still goes trick or treating, and I am 14 and plan on going for a while. But we are a weird family, I suppose.
by beachgirl324 on 10/15/2011 10:55:21 PM
I don't think I'm dressing up this year...I had a halloween party last year but I can't have one this year, so I'm skipping this year and having an awesome one next year(:

by spicyllamachick2120 on 10/15/2011 9:40:15 PM
I'm almost 14 (in November) and I plan on going this year. Maybe all the way through high school even. In this day and age, it isn't so uncommon for older teenagers to trick-or-treat. It's especially fine if you're going with a group of friends, I see it all the time in my neighborhood! Love love love Halloween. <3
by Athelas on 10/15/2011 9:39:50 PM
I stopped trick-or-treating when I was in the 4th or 5th grade, but that doesn't mean I've stopped celebrating Halloween altogether! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love watching scary movies, going on haunted hayrides through the woods, and dressing up and going to dances/parties. (:
by babygirl1999 on 10/15/2011 9:27:34 PM
One of my friends stopped trick or treating when she was eight. But If I were you girl, just embrace your inner halloween spirit and have a good time! If it's just putting on a a Halloween shirt or transforming into Hermione, enjoy yourself! Or go with some friends and all of you can dress up as the same person ! Whatever you do on Halloween just enjoy yourself!
by Jessy4132001 on 10/15/2011 9:13:18 PM
I think that once you hit the age of 13 you might not want to go trick or treating.

Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday- a night when i can become someone else entirely and get free candy out of it! I say that when ya reach college, ok, that's too old. But just cuz ya hit puberty or are in high school doesn't mean you should stop going door to door! (Although Halloween really goes against everything we've been taught our whole lives- yeah, let's all dress up weird and get candy from strangers at night, kids!)
Everyone, have a safe halloween!
by i♥drama on 10/15/2011 5:15:28 PM
Your so not to old to trick or treat! This year i decided not too but my friends still are. And if u decide not too u can give hand out candy or throw a party like they said! whatever u do i hope u have bunches of fun! )

by haleyhay3 on 10/15/2011 12:01:33 PM
I'm almost 13 and I think I'm too old to trick or treat, but I still want to dress up and pass out candy
by Sheyenne on 10/15/2011 11:33:01 AM
In our town, they passed an ordinance that says that kids over 12 can't go trick-or-treating. No candy for me .
by Harry-Potter-Fan on 10/15/2011 11:26:51 AM
um..never nobody can really tell how old you are especially if your wearing a mask or tons of make-up
by swimmerchic96 on 10/15/2011 10:24:41 AM
Im not stopping till im a senior in high school! Im not kidding. Im in 6th grade. its free candy!!! come on! who doesnt love that!
by foodiejr99 on 10/15/2011 9:43:38 AM

by JaneAusten on 10/15/2011 9:30:45 AM
I'm 14, and a freshman in highschool, and I'm still trick or treating this year--and I don't plan to stop anytime soon ;)
by annabann7 on 10/15/2011 9:03:10 AM
I will trick or treat until high school at least.
by kewauneegal on 10/15/2011 8:59:07 AM
I don't go trick or treating, one, because I live in the country, and my neighbors are like a half mile away from me, two, my grandparents give me candy anyway, and three, I live in Wisconsin, and by Halloween it's like 40... and that's a little cold.
But, I love carving pumpkins.

by claraton0202 on 10/15/2011 2:09:47 AM
I just started seventh grade at a jr high, and I feel exactly the same way! Im just going to go around with a friend, and maybe find some of my neighborhood friends and hang out with their group! Atleast I have someone to do it with! Besides, we are probably just going to hang out.
by LAS625 on 10/15/2011 1:44:53 AM
OK chicas, let us get one thing straight. You're going in to middle school yeah? So like 6th grade? YEAH? I'm a freshmen and my friends and I have already been trick or treating out Junior High years away. This year we are having a halloween PARTY and then going trick or treating. I don't know if it's different where you live or what, but until you're 18 and people still want to trick or treat with you, I say go for it!
by mdo556 on 10/15/2011 1:37:45 AM
i went trick or treating in middle school. your never too old for free candy xD im in high school now and wondering if i should or not lol
by oreo9347 on 10/15/2011 12:40:11 AM
That's right, you're never too old to <3 Halloween! This year's my 1st year of middle school, and I considered not going trick or treating this year. But I love my candy so I"m going to trick or treat this year. Even though this will probably be my last year trick or treating,I'll still love Halloween! <3
