I think there should be a age limit on trick or treaters. You've got adults going around getting candy. Get a job and buy your own leave it to the kidsanf young teens

Good luck with that! We had probably 100-150 "adults" trick-or-treating. We've got a very simple rule: if you're not younger than 12 you get no candy. My hand goes in your bag but I drop nothing in it. Trick-or-Treat is for the KIDS, not the bum parents and teen-agers who don't bother to wear a costume. As Jld stated - get a job!

i know right? old enough to work, too old to trick or treat. thats my rule.

if you are 16 and have nothing better to do than trick or treat, i highly suggest you examine ur social life.

We laugh at the ones who come to the door with two bags in their hands, get candy in the first bag, then shove the second one at you and say "this one is for my nephew (or brother, sister, baby cousin, whatever)". Our reply is "if they want candy they need to be here. See ya!". I have no use for bums or thieves.

yes, i totally agree with you all on this! What would even make a teenager want to go trick or treating? its funny, kids want to grow up so fast, but dont want to stop doing childish things. dont worry though, soon they will realize how pathetic they are, and will stop participating in a childs event.

Get real. Halloween is a fun time for all ages. The costumes and the atmosphere is fun. Adults do it simply to enjoy the holiday not to cheat you out of your candy! If the cost of a little candy is a burden for you then don't participate in the affair but don't try to take the fun out of it for others! There is nothing saying it is for kids only and if there isn't a little kid in you down deep then your the sad one!

I agree with Get Over It! Halloween is fun for all ages. Where I live we are some of the ONLY people to even decorate. Half the people didn't give out candy at all! Old people getting too stingy for their own candy cuz their too lazy to even go. People shouldn't mind what age you are & if you do just turn off your light like all the other old people
happy go lucky

i agree there should be an age restriction on trick or treaters i always was told if you were 15 or 16 that was to old,i take my 6 yr old and i end up holding the bag while she says trick or treat then thanks the people i'm glad i live in an area everyone knows me i would hate for people to think i as an adult was getting candy for myself.while we were out we did see a few adults with bags right along with their kids their bags did look empty guess joke was on them.

Really! A LAW regulating the age of trick or treaters? Are you kidding me?
If you think they are tood old, just simply tell them they are too old and refuse to give them candy.
But dont waste a buch of tax dollars, and Law enforcements time by passing a law to limit the age of a trick or treater. Cant you domn people do anything yourselves?

Do you realize how moronic you sound? Adults going door-to-door asking for candy? How stupid are you?

Has it not occurred to you that these old people may be living on a fixed income, and cannot afford extras? A lot of them have only Social Security for an income. Go to the grocery and watch. Younger women that are more than able to work zip through the check out line with cart(s) filled with name brand items and a food stamp card. Baby daddy or new man is either helping load the cart or is out in the parking lot sitting in a newer vehicle than most working people can afford. Does this describe you? I have observed the elderly buy store brands and discounted items; they count their pennies and put things back on the shelf because they cannot afford them. Shame on You!

Look this is not hard to figure out , really just a few things should come to mind when deciding if you are too old.
1. IF you have boobs then yeah you are too old.
2. IF you have to darken your facial hair to get your hobo 5 o clock shadow or IF you do not have to darken it then yeah you are too old.
3. IF you have to ask yourself if you are too old then yeah you are, so stop begging door to door, get a ounce of self dignity ( even if you have to borrow it ) and get a job!!!

When I was a kid it was embarrassing to go if you were past the age 12. I saw these two older ladies dressed like hookers or something actually asking for candy. I thought they were out with their kids, but no! They were asking for themselves. I think the one was suposed to be Alice in Wonderland or something. My nine year old was smart enought o make the comment that it was tasteless and said that there should be a law against that. I am not sure if he was commenting on their age or the fact that the one woman was about 250 wearing next to nothing and thigh highs!

Yeah, I agree that these people need to get a life and grow up. They walk around with plastic sacks glaring at the parents walking with their kids while pushing past them in the lines. Very stupid. Oh, and to the older kids, if you ARE going to go trick or treating, walking around in your dirty clothes acting like a pissed off teenager isn't a costume so at least put some friggin' effort into it, jeez. Yeah, Halloween is for all ages but trick or treating is for the kids. Go buy some candy and have a party at your house.
is right

If you can't afford enough candy to give to everyone you failed at life. Seriously, that's one of my favorite things, seeing everyone I went to highschool with having an open bag. It's like "yes, I win."

I have a college diploma, a high paying career, and a very nice home ... You have facepaint and an open bag. Social Darwinism you never fail to deliver.

So to the people who get on here and complain about your candy rations, to me you're just as insignificant as the peasants knocking on my door. Especially "laughing" who not only is too poverty stricken and greedy to relish in how pathetic these people are, you don"t even have a spine to take a stance on your belief that "adults"'shouldn't get candy.

God, I love Halloween.

You know you are trying to make yourself sound really educated and better than everyone when really, you didn't. You actually left out a couple words so some of it doesn't even make any sense but whatever. No one said adults shouldn't get candy...they sell it in the store, so if you want some, go buy it. If you are so pathetic that you have to don a costume, or better yet, can't even bother with that, walk around as an adult and put yourself in the same category as a child and beg for candy then sorry, I think those people are the ones who have failed at life. No one said they couldn't afford to give candy to adults. I think if the adults are going to make asses out of themselves, then considering they are too low to go and purchase their own then the people that are giving it out have every right to choose not to give them any.

God, I love how people try to put themselves up on a pedestal with how much "education" they have and try to make others feel inferior and ultimately FAIL. That happens every day, not just on Halloween.

Your comments reek of ignorance and self-pity. Obviously, you are one of the freaks who choose to make a kids holiday experience an adult one. Sad. You give yourself away by bragging on your education, job, and "very nice home". If you are what you claim to be you don't have to brag on yourself. I work for everything I have and it is my right to not give candy to adults and it is also my right to complain about the loser bums that try to take away from what should be a joyful experience for the kids. Crawl back in your hole and leave this discussion to those of us that actually have an opinion.
