You know it’s time for Halloween when days get shorter, colder, and rainy. October 31 marks Halloween every year. It’s a time for kids to dress up in costumes and go around to people’s doors, asking for  candy. Many people argue that once you get to a certain age — like middle school — you are “too old” to trick-or-treat.

But middle schoolers still like to go door to door and get candy.

Kennedy Clark, eighth grader, thinks middle school is still a legitimate age to trick or treat.

“I like it because you get a ton of candy,” she said. “But after eighth grade you should probably save it for the little kids.”

Gabe Howard, eighth grader, also thinks high school is the time to stop.

“I think that after eighth grade you should stop because high-schoolers seem too old,” he said.

But eighth grader Jake Van Horn thinks people can trick or treat until they are grown up.

“I don’t really think that there is technically a ‘cutoff’, but once you are an adult, it’s time to stop,” he said.  

Seventh-graders Camryn Crosby and Isabelle Donkers both love to go trick-or-treating and think the choice is up to the individual.

“I love Halloween, it’s so fun and I definitely plan on doing it in the future because everyone has their own freedom and if they want go trick-or-treating, let them,”

Crosby said.

Donkers is also a fan of Halloween.

“Halloween is so fun and I love dressing up and getting candy,” she said. “There is no age limit.”

But not every East student likes trick or treating.

“ I don’t really like it,” Clay Finch, eighth grader said. “It doesn’t interest me.”

Riley Coppinger thinks going to door is door is a waste of time.

“I’d rather go to a Halloween party,” she said. But she thinks there is no cut-off age for trick or treating.

Eighth grader Michael Booher and his sixth grade sister Addy both really like to trick or treat.

“I like trick-or-treating but once you’re fifteen I think you’re a little too old,”

Addy said.

Sixth grader David Hernandez thinks there’s no point in going trick or treating when  you’re older anyway.

“I really like the fact that you get free candy,” he said, “but once you get into your twenties there’s not really any point since you won’t get as much candy as when you were a kid or a teenager.”
