At what age did you stop trick-or-treating?
If you answered anything over age 12, you could have face jail time in some of these cities!
Towns like Chesapeake, Virginia have set restrictions on who can trick-or-treat even going as far as saying anyone over the age 13 caught trick-or-treating can be sent to jail for up to six months!
In Newport News, Virginia, kids can trick or treat until 7th grade or until they turn 12. After that, it’s a misdemeanor.
Honestly these are pretty hefty, ridiculous punishments for dressing up and going out for free candy!
What happened to the days of just reluctantly handing candy to a kid who’s obviously “too old” to be out for the holiday but at least he or she made an attempt to dress up.
Here’s to all the 16-year-olds who just throw on a Jason mask and head out…thanks for the memories.
