I throw this out as a service to all parents. My kids have been complaining that all their teenage friends trick-or-treat, so why can't they? You are too old to trick-or-treat if . . . . . . you have to take time off from work to go. . . . your mask tickles your mustache/"man fuzz." . . . you can drive yourself into town for ToT. . . . you already own the makeup. . . . your voice cracks as you say, "Trick or treat!" . . . you used babysitting money to buy your costume. . . . you can stay out after the siren sounds at 8 o'clock. . . . you're taller than the people handing out the treats. . . . you know better than to let your dad "inspect" your candy. . . . you stop at one house 3 times because there's a total babe handing out the treats. . . . you'd consider taking a personal check in lieu of candy. Hope this helps!
