Chant Tea: Costumes and candy for children versus college students

“How old is too old to trick-or-treat?”

“Honestly, are you really ever too old to trick-or-treat? Like honestly right, that’s valid. Like everyone needs candy, ya’know? So, If you’re going to a house with your kids I would still grab some candy for myself. But, if they don’t want you to take the candy, that’s okay too. So any age I guess.”

“It’s never too old. But if I had to pick a certain age, I’d probably say 17. Probably, that’s when I stopped anyway. That’s when I just started watching movies in the house and hanging out with people pretty much.”

“I would say it depends on the group. It depends on who is the youngest in the group, because it’s a group experience. I am a junior in college but I still take my baby cousin trick-or-treating. So, as long as you have the right person. If I was to put an age to it, I would say 18.”

“I think as long as you can either pass for a high schooler or if you have a baby. The in-between is college students I guess. But age 22.”

“Never. Free candy is free candy.”
