Halloween is approaching quickly. The streets will soon be filled with costumed children knocking door to door asking for treats.

Every year the same argument arises. How old is to old for kids to trick or treat? Should there be a age limit when it comes to trick or treating on Halloween?

Many people believe that children should stop trick or treating once they hit a certain age. A town in Cumberland County, in South Jersey even set a law in place. They will now charge kids with a misdemeanor if they go trick or treating beyond the age limit of 12.

Is this law going over the top, or should it be accepted?

Vote below to state what you believe the age limit or if there should be one for trick or treating on Halloween!
