Is trick-or-treating not on your agenda this year, but you still kind of wish it was? Feel like you’re too old to trick-or-treat, but wish you weren’t? Trust us, we know how you feel.
Realizing you’re too old to trick-or-treat can feel like the end of an era: no more shivering in your costume, going house to house, or stuffing your face with candy after a long night of hard work.
Being too old to trick-or-treat isn’t the end of the world. Once you accept your new Halloween role, the holiday can be a whole new kind of fun (yes, DIY decor and festive breakfasts, I’m looking at you). Read on to see that being too old to trick-or-treat is a journey of emotions we all go through.
Your initial excitement that it’s Halloween
That knee-jerk reaction to figure out which houses give out the best candy…
… only to realize you’re too old to trick-or-treat ?
Attempts to convince yourself you won’t miss it
Watching Halloween movies with candy you bought yourself (that never tastes the same as when it’s trick-or-treated)
Resentment when you have to hand out your precious candy to greedy children
Eventual acceptance that you’re too old to trick-or-treat and appreciation for your new adult role
