What Age Should Kids Stop Trick Or Treating?
With Halloween around the corner, many people are busy getting decorations out and preparing for the onslaught of trick-or-treaters. And no matter which end of the candy you’re on – I think everyone has posed this question before: What age should kids stop trick-or-treating? It always seems like there is a grey-area that surrounds this perennial Halloween question.
A city in Canada has aimed to answer the question once and for all; Bathurst, New Brunswick recently established 16 as the cut-off year and also arranged a curfew of 8:00 PM. The penalty? A fine of $200.
What are your thoughts? What age did you stop trick-or-treating? Or – if you stay home and hand out candy, have you ever had someone knock on your door that you’ve taken issue with?
