I am in stage three of trick or treating.  Stage one involved trick or treating from three in the afternoon until ten thirty in the evening. I did that up until I was fifteen.  When my children were born I began stage two of trick or treating by taking them house to house until they were eleven and thirteen. Now they are thirteen and fifteen and want to go out on their own while we hand out candy and drink wine with the neighbors. I am sure that, in ten-fourteen years, stage four will hit when I take the grand children out trick or treating.  I will have come full circle!

some people at a certain ago stop trick or treating because its not cool what about you guys...?

I THINK YOU should quit at age 12

That's the age I quit when my family and I were still celebrating Halloween.  I remember that year a couple of houses I stopped at told me I was "too big" to be trick-or-treating.  I felt so embarrassed, I went back home with a half of bucket of candy. lol Then in high school, I was called "boring" by one of my friends for asking her if she was still trick-or-treating at her age.  We were fifteen at the time.

 8) Well, I'm 59 and I haven't been trick or treating since my children were young however I loved both dressing up and handing out candy until we moved to a rural area and no one ever comes out here trick or treating because houses are too far apart so now lol I just buy my own candy and eat it.  :wave:

I don't trick or treating. It is one event that my family does not participating in. I believe that halloween is a celebration of the dead or the underworld. It is my personnal opinion and religious belief. I hope  that I did not offend anyone.

I don't remember when I actually stopped trick or treating, but I might have been around 10 or 11. I was discouraged by my parents to eat much candy to minimize cavities and this took the fun out of getting candy during this type of ritual. I spent the next few years, however, helping out passing out candy when people rang out the doorbell until the audience got older than I was.

   I stopped when the people started putting turnips, sweet potatoes, and persimmons in my pillowcase that I carried. It was right after World War Two and actually BB-Bats and Kits and maybe a Holloway sucker was all that was available. Oh, yes and popcorn *bleep* or puffed wheat *bleep*. Those wern't the good old days! :notworthy:

The last time I went trick or treating, I was 17. Definitely a little old, but a bunch of friends and myself had bought costumes for a Halloween party that got canceled, so we made the best of it!

Before that, I think I was 12 the last time I went trick or treating.

But I still love Halloween. I'm always the one passing out the candy because I love to see everyone in their costumes!
