Trick-or-treat! Ah yes, trick-or-treating, the Halloween tradition of dressing up in costume and asking strangers for candy - weird, but sorta wonderful! C'mon, everyone has looked forward to getting a bag of sugary loot on All Hallow's Eve at one point or another. But imagine being told that you are no longer allowed to venture out on your holiday candy endeavors - spooky, right?
That is exactly what's happening in Upper Deerfield Township in New Jersey. The Cumberland County community is joining others across the country in implementing age restrictions on who can go door-to-door on the scariest day of the year, calling it a misdemeanor if anyone over the age of 12 is caught in the pursuit of candy.
It makes sense why some people would prefer not to give candy to older kids and teens who maybe don't put as much effort into getting dressed up. But at the end of the day, Halloween is a holiday meant for costumes, candy and fun!
Hmmm, it is going to be very interesting to see how October 31st plays out in New Jersey this year! What do we think - is this absolutely ridiculous or totally fair? Let us know!
