HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STOPPED TRICK OR TREATING????

HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STOPPED TRICK OR TREATING????

I remember when Halloween was ALL about how much candy you could score in one evening. I didn’t do many “trick” things, just mainly went after the “treats”. We used to use our pillow cases and always made our own costumes. I think my last “get up” trick or treating was when I was 14….

For example, if it’s tacos, I gotta get the taco supremes from Taco Bell. You know the ones…
