When I was 16, I was trick or treating with my best friend and her love interest. They looked older than they actually were. So we were at one door and the lady said:

"Aren't you a little old to be trick or treating?" and they replied:

"We're taking our little sister out." I am the only other person on that door step, and I am actually one year older than my best friend.

"What are you dressed as?" the lady asks me. I have five seconds to decide whether my pride or candy is more important to me.

"A fairy."

The fact that anyone even went for that made me stop trick or treating.

I'm going to say 13.

At this point, you're a teenager, not a "child." I consider the teenage years the training period to be an adult. Trick-or-treating is not for adults, it is for kids.

On the same token... parents should definitely allow teens to have fun on Halloween. There's always parties, movies, or whatever to celebrate. Also, sometimes dressing up just to hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters can be a good time, too. I think that's what teens need to focus on.

If I have a teen show up on my door-step (given he/she doesn't suffer from a mental handicap), I'm going to embarrass the shit out of them. Sorry, I'm old school, and I believe humiliation is still a valid teaching tool.

I quit trick or treating at like 11 so around there

Its more fun to stay home alone and watch a horror movie while my parents take the rest of my siblings out

I would agree with 'when you can buy your own candy.' Then it is time to move to parties and random cosplay action.

Only when you become too ashamed to do it. But why would you be?

It's a great idea to offer trick-of-treat services for neighborhood kids. Just guide them around and make sure they don't get abducted while their busy parents slave away at work. You get money and treats and a good time.

People still trick or treat? Not sure when, but sometime between graduating high school and owning my own home I noticed the streets are empty on Halloween. Last couple years I've had between 0 and 2 visitors per year to my home in the suburbs of Los Angeles and Las Vegas. I always buy candy just in case, but most of the time I just end up eating it myself.

I think 13 was the last time for me. After that I was going to Halloween parties or gatherings.

12 should be your last run. Unless you have some younger siblings that your chaperoning.
