Seriously, I mean trick or treating is some pretty wholesome fun for a 16yr old. I remember AH teenagers running around egging and Official Tex Hat Merry Texmas Christmas Shirt toilet papering houses when I was in highschool. We actually had a Junior (who happened to be the Senior English teacher’s son) and his Sophomore buddy get arrested my sophomore year for bag snatching and assault (did I mention they were AHs). They were driving around in Mrs. P’s (the teacher) minivan and jumping out stealing candy when the sophomore tried to take a 13yr old kid’s candy and he wouldn’t let go. So this 16yr old AH (the sophomore) punches the poor kid in the face. Some parents see everything, take down the tag and call the cops.
Trick or Treating is a Official Tex Hat Merry Texmas Christmas Shirt totally foreign concept here in Japan. Strangers coming to your house to ask for candy? Weird! Halloween itself has caught on here, but mostly the costume and party part. However a few years back when I was teaching English I did help out at a community event for pre-school and elementary aged kids where they went trick or treating in a small area. The families in that area had all pre-arranged it so there was a set of houses that the kids all went to, maybe a dozen. The kids had a blast and all looked adorable in their costumes.
