Title: Adults Trick or Treating?
Post by: linsanna on November 02, 2015, 01:09:58 pm
This Halloween I had a laugh when passing out candy to trick or treaters. At the end of the night, two full grown adults who looked to be around their forties came to my door and asked for candy like any regular child trick or treating. Have you had a similar experience to this, and what are your thoughts? Would YOU do it? :)  :pumpkin:

I don't give out candy and would not go trick or treating.  I didn't get to go as a kid and now I'm not outgoing enough to enjoy a costume party.  I prefer to stay home with homemade pizza and scary movies.  :pumpkin:

Age is just a number, why not have some fun at any age?!

      Go to McDonalds for special coffee treats. Spice Pumpkin and many other flavors. Try other popular flavors during Christmas.

If you don't feel comfortable giving them candy or other treats, just don't. It's very rude to assume that someone is too old to go trick-or-treating just because he or she looks old.

Well I had someone rude when I took my 14 month old trick or treating. She was so spiteful to the fact that my daughter "cant" eat candy. It is supposed to be fun and not about candy!

Thats funny, I only got two trick or treaters on halloween and one the next day, the first one was a black cat, so I gave him some treats, then a little girl snuck up and was talking like freddy krueger, then the next day a little girl came down and wanted all the candy.

If they are with children I can see that.  If they are by themselves that's shameful they are old enough to buy their own candy.

LOL! I think that if I went out trick or treating that my neighbors would laugh at me and tell me to grow up! lol ... I could never do that. But every one is different. So to each his own! :)

Most of my adult trick or treaters came with children. And most of them didn't carry any receptacle for candy.   But I wouldn't mind giving candy to adults....Adults just want to have fun.

A lot of adults really get into Halloween with the costumes and drinking of course.  I have never been one for Halloween.  What Halloween really means - is All Hallows Eve.  Not to be a celebrated.

Yeah I think trick or treating should be for kids only, I know adults want to have fun too who doesn't? adults can have a costume party and put their own spin on it. Adults have their own money because they work a job (get your own candy!), kids get free candy, it's a childhood perk, don't mess with tradition.

Trick or Treating is a kids activity....parents take their youngsters out around the neighborhood.

Adults can have a costume party and play games....

I live in a subdivision.  For many years people used to drive their children to the neighborhood and we had many, many trick or treaters.  However, for about the past 4-5 years, hardly a soul comes to the neighborhood.  Last year, for the first time, I bought no candy and did not turn on my porch light.  At 66 years old, I have decided I am done with trick or treat, whether children or adults.  Around here the community has many events for the children to go so it is safe and supervised.

Are you serious?  I probably would not have answered the door.  I don't participate in halloween any way.  It doesn't surprise me and you can expect to see more of it in the future I am sure.

If you don't feel comfortable giving them candy or other treats, just don't. It's very rude to assume that someone is too old to go trick-or-treating just because he or she looks old.

lol.  It's not rude.  Trick or Treating is a KID thing.  No 8 or 9 year old KID is going to look like they are 40.

Can you 14 month old walk?  Did you have other kids?  I wouldn't think it appropriate to carry a baby house to house trick or treating.  Because that is basically YOU trick or treating.  But people are what they are and if people are going to hand out candy then they need to expect anything and just participate or don't turn your lights on.

Most people have no idea the meaning behind holidays.  I do not acknowledge halloween at all.

You seriously think it is okay for a 40 year old adult to go door to door dressed in a costume and ask for candy?

Eh, I'm non judgmental on it. If they come to the door with a kid and they're wearing a costume, I'm alright with it.

My costume this year cost $50. If people gave me a tiny Snickers bar for my troubles, it would be nice.  ;)

1- I haven't passed out candy for a few years now because my children are grown and I don't have grandchildren.

2-If I was passing out candy and adults show up at my door......

I would treat them the same as I do with small children.  Some adults have mental health disabilities and I wouldn't want to "shame" anyone.  Also, we all have an inner child who wants to have a little bit of fun.

Very wise to feel that way CG.It is very easy to see spiritism and the presence of satan in Halloween now.The bible clearly states "friends with the world is enmity to God"And this system is ruled by Satan.Its certainly not hard to see that.

I understand many would feel its harmless to dress up and go trick or treating,but if 1 case arises where an innocent child was poisoned...that should be 1 reason to do your research on such a demonic day.

I don't get trick or treaters where I live, but I don't think adults should be out trick or treating. Thats for the kids. But I guess in this day and age, there are a lot of homeless, so it may be a form of food for some of them.

My sons friends come by and trick or treat they are in their 20's but  they know me.  It is kinda strange for a grown person to come to the door alone with no kids.   They  have parties for grown people,

No but then we don't get trick or treaters of any kind.  I think that is crazy though.  Man I think if I want candy I would go buy it.  If I want to dress up I would do it and stay at home and hand out candy and eat what I want of it lol.  Wow I guess it takes all kinds.

 I think its for kids but if there trick or treating for the kids to be safe than its just fine !!!! :) :) :) Besides I think we would look cute dressing up with our children

I have had adults ask for extra treats when they are with their children. They looked as though they were quite poor and so I did it. I just felt sorry for them.  :'(

When I'm home alone and answering the door for a couple of teen boys or older that are trick or treating, I don't like it at all. It makes me quite uncomfortable.  :sweat:

I do think there is supposed to be an age limit in different areas to protect people.  If adults came to my door purporting to be trick or treating, I'm not sure what my reaction would be, but I don't think it would be good.  >:(

Don't really mind. If its before 9pm and you have a costume then it's fine for me.. Don't bother opening up the door for teenagers who don't have a costume
