As a child we enjoyed trick or treaing. When I got older, I realize that halloween really glorifiesd the devil. So, I stopped years ago.

I guess I stopped treat or treating when I had children.  I always thought it was kind of fun to dress up and go.

I don't do Halloween either, and when I was a kid I did not go trick or treating, my father did not beleive in it.  I did let my children go trick or treating when they were small.

I think 9th grade was the last time I went.  I still see adults come by and trick or treat.  Cracks me up.

I remember trick or treating when I was in elementary school around our neighborhood.  When I was in middle school we moved across town and there really wasn't many places to go.  I was never big into dressing up.  I do recall our mom made several of our costumes when we were kids.  One year I was a white rabbit and my sister was a pink cat.  I think our mom was inspired by the "A Christmas Story" scene where Ralph gets a pink bunny suit from his Aunt.  I felt almost the same way...   :bunny:

I quit a long time ago.  The last couple of years I gave out candy I expected to see little kids and I got 20% little kids and 80% older teens.  Oh well as long as they take all the candy I bought. :)

I stopped trick or treating when I was 15. A few years after that I would take my neighbor's little ones around a few blocks to cash in on some sweet treats without being told I'm too old  :thumbsup:

We don't do Halloween, but back in the day when my daughter was little, I dressed up and went with her.  I don't trust strangers, so we got double amount of candy.  lol

We went to someone's door, and the man gave her and me both a pamphlet and told us both to give to our mothers. He was someone running for a political office of some kind.  It took everything to keep from laughing in his face, because I WAS a parent.  He thought I was an older kid.  lol.

But since we were having a dinner at my parents house afterward, I gave my mother the flyer, and told her the man said to give it to my mother.  lol

I did it to be funny, and she just cracked up.

That was the last time I ever went.

A similar situation happened to me!  I went trick or treating with my little sister and a woman gave us pamphlets to give to our parents about Jehovah's Witness or Latter Day Saints, a religion that doesn't celebrate Halloween, I don't remember exactly and some sort of insurance.  When we left her door I said to my sister "I think we just got our first trick."

I went through 9th grade, took 10th off and gave out candy, then did Trick or Treat for UNICEF 11th and 12th and both years people gave me candy because the kids age population decreased, I was by myself and they thought it was sweet of me to do.

When I was growing up, I only got to go a few times. I think I've only gone maybe a handful of times in my whole life (and that doesn't include the few times I chaperoned kids). I knew people that still went until they were 18 or 19.

Trick or treating was never my thing.  It is not a favorite for me.  It's creepy and after reading about how it came about it's not natural.
