You're Never Too Old to Trick-or-Treat

The leaves are changing and the air is getting crisp, which means it's the season of boots, scarfs and hoodies. We can nearly contain our excitement about fall, pumpkin spiced lattes and most of all, Halloween.

Halloween is going outside and hearing the crowd of people walking up and down the streets, the crunching of falling autumn leaves underneath you and the sound of screams and giggling when someone gets pranked by a friend. It's a time when you can dress up, making your own costume or going shopping with some pals, so you can all match. You can dress up as your favorite fictional or nonfictional character and attend a Halloween party or trick or treat. It is indeed quite a holiday, but how old is too old to go around asking for candy?

Well, I think you know when adults open the door and start looking at you weird. Or they don't even greet you with a "Happy Halloween." Or they don't even compliment your amazing costume. How rude and sometimes it can be embarrassing especially if the adults comment about your age. Why? You're not hurting anyone by dressing up with your friends and going around asking for candy. So why are some people making such a big deal?

Adults are always complaining about how children grow up too fast nowadays, so why not let them be kids for a night? Some cities ban trick-or-treating to children over the age of 12. I think that's ridiculous, like why are you judging teens? If they want to go out trick-or-treating who are you to stop them? They're just trying to have fun and have a good night. Of course, they could always spend it at a Halloween party like most teenagers do.

In my opinion, I think you're never too old to trick-or-treat as long as you feel comfortable and you're having fun. Why should you stop? Just because some stuck-up people judge you and think you're "immature" for trying to have fun? I don't think so.
