How Old is Too Old to Trick or Treat?

I was talking to my friend Branden a few days ago, and he was sharing scary tales of past Halloweens, of knocks on his front door, of large, tall looming figures of fright. Also known as teenagers.

Branden's experiences isn't unique. I had noticed at 13 there were quite a few kids knocking on my front door who were older than me, which struck me as odd. And corny. Now it seems, the overgrown Trick or Treaters are a problem nationwide, and one town has struck back with a ban. From NBC:

How old is too old?

Good question.

Not really a big fan of Halloween so I can't really add anything to your post, except to say I believe the children with facial hair are too old.

I'm going to agree with you. Unless they have some sad hair overgrowth hereditary disorder, if you're taking a Gillette to your face, it's time to sit down.
