I remember the last year that I went out trick or treating. My best friend and I were 12. She dressed up as a cow-girl and I dressed up like a punk rocker. We were both tall for our age – and with halloween make-up, I’m sure we looked older than we were. That said, we weren’t prepared for the snarky remarks from some of the treat-givers.
“Aren’t you two too old to be trick or treating?’ they said scornfully.
Talk about party poopers!
Yesterday, my six-year old daughter and I got talking about these curmudgeons and we both agreed that it’s a pretty dumb societal rule that you have to give up trick or treating before you hit your teens. In fact, I think it would be pretty darn fun to have an adult trick or treat night.
Thankfully, I get to raid my kids’ trick or treat bags after they go to bed – but not everyone has this opportunity.
To help you put a little child-like fun back into your halloween, I scoured the web for some fun and free halloween printables. If you happen to be having a halloween themed wedding, you can use these. Or just use em for a halloween party.
