I don't remember trick or treating when I was a kid, but I didn't let my kids go trick or treating after they turned twelve. I believe this tradition should belong to the little ones.

I stopped trick or treating at 14, mostly because I started going to more costume parties, and the thrill of going house to house for candy lost its appeal, especially when I was old enough to buy just the candy I wanted on occasion.

I stopped trick or treating around 16 but I took my brother a couple years after that he is 6 years younger than me. But I kinda like being on the giving end now. I can have as much candy as I want and stay in a warm house and watch fun halloween movies and listen to halloween music. And I get to see the smiles I get from kids when I give them glow sticks and candy. =)

I can't remember when I stopped regularly going, but I do remember going out one last time when I was 20 with my younger brother. We dressed up and had a riot as it was drizzly that night and the roads were almost bare. We each got almost 2 full pillowcases of candy that night.

I think this tradition of trick or treating ceased for me when I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade.  It was fun getting free candy donned in costumes when I was in Kindergarten. That was my earliest memory.

I think it was probably around 9 or 10 years old, when I stopped getting enthusiastic about Halloween costumes and started to reuse the same one over and over (witch), which just ended the Halloween spirit for me.. I've never been too fond of receiving candy from strangers.

I stopped Trick Or Treating when I turned 18, kinda late I know but at the time I lived in a small town where it was normal. Now I enjoy passing out candy to kids:)

I have never stopped so I guess the trick is on me.  But I am much more into the treating part than the tricking part of the holiday that I was in when I was a teen terror.  :)

During elementary school, probably around 10.  Too long ago to remember.
