Trick or Treat: How Old is Too Old?
Mon, 10-29-2012 - 12:25pm

People across the country and the blogosphere  are asking when kids should stop with the trick-or-treating. After all, a cute little princess or power ranger on your porch is one thing. A six-foot-tall teenager, who can’t be bothered to paint his face or wear a plastic mask in return for some Smarties, can start to feel like something else — perhaps not entirely in the spirit of the holiday.

Is 12 too old to trick or treat?

What do you all think? How old is too old to go trick or treating?
