    I went trick or treating with my neice when I was 18 and one lady told me I ought to be ashamed of myself. Most people didn't say anything, they just gave her handfuls of candy and me one piece

    The Shimer College students here in town would be Trick-or-Treating next to us, I thought it was neat since they were behaved and had some neat minimal costumes.
    No costume = no treat.
    As I remember it they would sometimes all be singing and putting on sort of a show for their candy. Not a mean show just entertaining.
    It was a liberal arts college.
    Maybe this made a difference?

    I say as soon as you stop taking the time to come up with a costume, then you should stop. I HATE when you get stupid teens who should have a job, begging for candy in the street clothes. I save the dum dum and smarties for them (the suckiest candy you can get on halloween)

    In general, I think if you are younger than a teenager, then trick or treat, older than that, then its probably time to have a costume party at Mom and Dad's place instead.

    However, that choice should be up to the family treat or treating, not the people giving away the candy. Comments should not be made.

    I am 6'5" tall, my wife if 5'9", my 11 year old daughter is almost 5'11" tall. She went trick or treating with her younger siblings and several old hags made comments about her being too old. What a nice thing to say to a young lady taking her siblings around the neighborhood. When she got back out to the road and told me what happened I started up the driveway, all I got out was she's only 11 you old before my wife's fingernails caught up to my arm.

    Of course the heart-filled answer that everyone wants to hear is: "Ya see Timmy, as long as you keep Halloween inside your heart and believe in the spirit of the holiday you will never be too old to enjoy the fruits of its beauty." Of course many of us know that this is not the case. However, it is not without its own rewards. The process itself is just like maturing in real-life. And with maturing, our purpose changes from going house to house, to becoming the house. In that respect we don the responsibility of becoming the suppliers.
    In turn when we felt the excitement of approaching the cob-web and black-lit drenched houses and the surprise of the skeleton man hiding in the bushes with his bowl of endless candy, we now create those feelings of excitement for the rest of the world.

    Or just wear a mask that conceals your face entirely and try to speak as little as possible, and punch the vendor in the face, take the bowl of candy, and run.
