Since we're nearing the end of October and I keep finding things to share I figure I'll just pop these additional blog posts out.
So, how old is too old for trick-or-treating? Well, according to this article, Mayor Mark Eckhert of Belleville, Ill. thinks that anyone over the age of 12 is too old AND he is talking about creating an ordinance banning anyone over 12 form trick or treating AND threatening them with a $100 fine if they ignore the law. Woah! I wonder, how in the world are the police going to deal with THIS on Halloween night? Also, doesn't this discriminate again kids that LOOK older than they are (and those who look younger can get away with TOTing for a few extra years)? Heck, my kids are HUGE. My son would get fined probably around age 8 for goodness sake.
Comment appreciated...let the debate begin...
(and in the meantime, how about a little Trick orTreatin' for ya?)
