How to Go Reverse Trick-or-Treating

While teens knocking on the door with lame costumes can get annoying, you really are never too old to go trick-or-treating.

I once went out in my 30s with a colleague for a bit for our morning radio program. We wanted to see if people would hand out candy to people who were well and good beyond “reasonable age limits.” Well, they did. It was a wonderful night to feel like a kid again.

Locally, there is an effort on Halloween called Trick or Eat. College kids get costumed up and take their bag door to door asking for cans for the Food Bank. What a great way to still experience the joy of dressing up for Halloween, meeting the neighbors, and then paying it forward.

Then there is something called Reverse Trick Or Treating.

Instead of knocking on doors and getting candy, you knock on doors and give candy. One story was shared on Metafilter by user np312. He told of how some college kids dressed up as grannies and did reverse trick or treating in his neighborhood. Docpop loved the story so much, he turned it into a comic.

You’re never too old to experience the community and sharing and giving spirit of Halloween, check out this great story of The Best Halloween Costume Ever:
