On October 31, there are many kids who go out trick-or-treating. Some of them are middle schoolers. Some adults may question them

‘Aren’t you too old to trick-or-treat?’

How old is too old? There are many people who think that kids should stop trick-or-treating at age twelve, but many students disagree.

“Kids should stop trick-or-treating when they feel they are too old,” said Evan Robinson, a seventh grader.

Others believe there is a certain age to stop.

“People should stop trick-or-treating when they are fifteen or sixteen,” said Lauryn Selby, an eighth grader.

Most students agree with her.

“You should stop trick-or-treating when you are a teenager.” said a sixth grader, Ben See.

Ciara Swenson said “fourteen” is a good age.

Why do kids trick-or-treat? There are many reasons kids decide to trick-or-treat: free candy, spending time with friends, and wearing a costume.

Free candy is a seventh grader, Skye Landaz’s, favorite part of Halloween.

“Everyone is giving out free candy, and it is really nice,” said Landaz.

A great part of Halloween is the candy, but Swenson had a different opinion.

“I like Halloween because I get to hang out with friends, get candy for free, and we just get to have the best time of our lives,” said Swenson.
