Halloween is a holiday where kids go out in silly overpriced costumes and go door to door threatening people for candy. I remember going trick or treating when I was in a kid, and enjoying the various candies I got from neighbors. In middle school I used to debate looking like an overgrown kid to go get pounds of delicious candy, but I usually contained myself and stole from my parents' stash. Last time I went trick or treating was in 7th grade, but I didn't get that much candy because my costume was a Trader Joe's bag with holes cut out for eyes.
That brings me to my thought, at what age should kids stop going out trick or treating?
I think around 6-7th grade should be the cutoff.
It's not that I feel embarrassed to be seen from the people giving me candy, but I am embarrassed to be seen next to a bunch of 5 year olds.
But candy is delicious and I always think of going trick or treating when Halloween comes around every year.
