Last year I had a kid come by my house by himself, no costume... He was probably about 13 or 14. Because he obviously wasn't dressed up, I asked him "What are you supposed to be?" And he said, without skipping a beat, "I'm a kid who goes to school all day." So then I said "Soooo, you just wanted candy?" "Yeah, pretty much." Kudos for your honesty, kid! He made me laugh, so he got candy.

Back when I lived in a neighborhood with trick or treaters, we would always get adults trying to scam extra candy....i.e. holding an infant and saying they were collecting "for the baby," or even better, "for my kid who's sick at home" (and they already have three or four other kids collecting). If your child (if they even exist) is truly THAT sick, then perhaps they shouldn't be gorging on candy; or if you MUST collect nonetheless, then you rally mean to say that the four other kids couldn't each donate a handful or two? No child needs 10 pounds of sugar in one sitting...

if an adult or older teen comes to my door during trick or treating, I'm not going to be rude. I'll give them a piece of candy. I was raised to be polite. It's not my place to determine whether or not they should be out trick or treating. If they are having fun - good for them! We all need to be a little less judgmental and just accept people for who they are. I'll leave the judging to a higher power

You know the most pathetic thing I see each year is, low classed parents pushing a newborn or small baby from door to door trick or treating and the
mother is collecting the candy & goodies! They look cute dressed up, but we all know the baby isn't eating the treats. In my opinion, if the child isn't walking-
Then don't take them out.

I agree. The whole point of trick or treating is for the kids to get the candy, NOT the parents. That's just taking advantage of the situation on their part and I think it's disgusting.

I LOVE to see older people in costume. It reminds me that Halloween is for everyone, not just the children. I haven't dressed up in years but this year I'm doing it and am so excited about it since hubby's joining me and we are going out! I decorated the house for the first time in a few years and now I've got the bug all over again. It's my fav holiday, even better than Christmas! Can't wait to do the haunted houses and pumpkin patches! It's almost here so don't delay folks. Get out there, all ages and enjoy the holiday! Happy Halloween!!!!! :)

The first year I was married to my current husband, I went to get the Halloween Candy out of the cupboard, only to find that he had eaten it all! He gave out quarters till I could go get more. From that Halloween on, I have always handed out toys instead. Little plastic Halloween rings and toys, pencils, whistles and the like. Now we live in a hotel and there is understandably no trick-or-treat.

Not giving out candy does not necessarily mean that someone is rude, as there are many reasons for that answer, such as not getting any trick-or-treaters because of where you live, if you are gone that night or maybe working, people who might not celebrate the holiday, people giving out a gift other than candy, someone who can't afford to give candy, etc.

I go out trick or treating with my kids and leave a bowl of candy out. I assume that if an adult trick or treater comes by that they take candy, so I chose yes.

.. if I gave out candy and saw an older person trick or treating and that person had a costume, I would give that person candy anyway cause I rather have adults have fun doing healthy stuff like that and then they could go home with a bad of candy all tired, rather then getting tired drinkin wind up in the news on drunk driving or some other nonsenseness

I was very tall as a kid and there were many times when people refused to give me candy because they thought I was older than I really was(11 or 12). So I may be a bit biased, but personally I think people who don't give candy to kids who are "too old" are jerks. You bought the candy to give out, you're going to get rid of it anyway, so what's the big deal? Let people have fun. So yeah, I say as long as they are wearing a costume it's all good.

If you're old enough to buy your own candy, you shouldn't trick or treat! Once someone is 16+, I don't see how it's fun anyway. By that age my friends and I just had a party and gave out the treats.
I'm usually out with my youngest son, so I leave out treats on the honor system, but everything is inside by 8pm, when all the little ones are done. There was no good choice for that(I don't physically pass out the treats so I don't really know who takes them).

The point is to engage in society. Strolling around at night with my friends in silly costumes is what i remember the most about Halloween, the candy doesn't last forever. Getting a bag of candy and eating it alone in your room does not a memory make.

LOL, I'm pretty sure the older teens/adults going around aren't thinking, "Great! This is a good way to engage in society!" as opposed to "Hey, free candy!"

I've never had someone come trick or treating so I picked the "I don't give candy" option. I usually buy a small pack just in case though I often eat it all myself by the end of the night :)

it depends on the costume I always want to believe that may be the adult dressed up because their kid was sick and couldn't go trick or treating I try to find the good in people yes that is very hard to do these days but on halloween thats what i like to think. oh but they HAVE to say trick or treat or no candy
castlesburning

Sorry, but IMO if the child is sick, it's the parent's job to make it up to them...or, they just plain lose out that year. I know it sounds harsh, but you just don't get to collect on events youre not present for.

Here in CT, a few years ago we were hit with a surprise snowstorm in late Oct. It caused many trees and power lines to fall, so that Halloween was declared officially "cancelled" simply because it was too unsafe to go stumbling around in the dark with all that. There was some talk of rescheduling, but it wasn't. Basically, yeah, it sucks, but if you aren't able to go on the actual day, your chance is done,

THE ONLY WAY I GIVE OUT CANDY TO TEENAGERS OR ADULTS IS IF THEY ARE TRICK OR TREATING WITH THEIR CHILD OR A YOUNGER SIBLING. OTHER THAN THAT, HALLOWEEN SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR THE CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 15....

We don't get trick or treaters, so I chose the option "I don't give candy to trick or treaters". I've lived in several apartments/condos over the last 13 years, and have never had any trick or treaters. I bought candy for many of those years in anticipation, but I always ended up eating it all.

Nice to see that so many people would still give out candy no matter how the tricker or treater is. I'm in my early 20's and I love trick or treating but I haven't been since I was 16. Now I just take my little sister.

SwagSupa, it's not that an adult wouldn't enjoy it, or not like getting free candy...it's about reaching a certain age where you realize that your time for something has passed, and graciously stepping down. The world does not owe adults free stuff, especially when it takes away from the ones the event is intended for, the little ones. Candy in bulk can be pretty expensive, esp. if someone is getting name brands, and many people are on a budget. You seriously wouldn't feel bad, being an adult and knowing that someone may have had to turn off their lights early to the kids because your grown self took the last Hershey bar??
