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.

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:

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.

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!

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?
