Although I’m not down with our intern Trevor “Trick or Treating” at 21 with NO COSTUME, I do think this is going a little too far.

Did you know that in some cities any child over the age of 13 who is caught trick-or-treating could be sent to jail for up to 6 months, and fined? THAT’s INSANE! As surprising as it may sound, some towns have a strict no-no policy against children over the age of 13 participating in the popular Halloween tradition, trick-or-treat.

In as much as there is no official age restriction in trick-or-treating, some cities like Chesapeake city in Virginia, some parts of  South Jersey, and various North Carolina cities, observe a strict age policy in trick-or-treating. They also enforce a curfew of 7p.m or 9p.m.
