But how old is too old for trick-or-treating?


In my opinion, I don't care how old you are... if you come to my door on Halloween, I'm going to give you a piece of candy. Particularly, if you're a teenager and you're going door-to-door asking for candy, there are a lot of poorer decisions that you could be making. But instead, you're out on Halloween getting candy? Here's a piece of candy.

Laws About Trick-or-Treating

I know there are people who are out there who feel differently than I do. And not just feel differently... they've made laws about how old you can be to trick-or-treat. Take this one Canadian town, for instance.

According to BBC News, Bathurst, New Brunswick has a bylaw that states, "No person(s) over the age of 14 yrs. shall take part in door-to-door soliciting (trick-or-treating)". It also says that any trick-or-treating has to finish by 7 pm. And if you get caught breaking those rules, you could pay a fine equal to about $149.

But that's Canada, not Michigan.

Michigan Trick-or-Treating Laws

In Michigan, you might be surprised to learn that we actually don't have any laws regarding age and trick-or-treating. So no, there is no age limit on trick-or-treating. So, trick-or-treat away, kids! Just make sure to be safe!
