The second September disappears, Halloween season unofficially begins.

For some, that means pumpkin carving and decorating the lawn. For others, that means all the candy your heart could want and your hands could possibly hold.

Sure, you can buy oversized bags of individually wrapped candies at nearly any store, but nothing is quite as satisfying as earning them one-by-one by walking door-to-door in your best costume.

Well, I guess it depends how old you are. There must be a certain age when it’s no longer acceptable to request free candy at the doors of your neighbors ... but at what age is that so?

WDIV Insiders, help us settle this debate: How old is “too old” to go trick or treating?

Take the poll below and let us know!

Stay tuned for the final results soon.


Introducing Insider Debates!

There are a lot of us here in the Local 4 newsroom, and you can bet we don’t see eye-to-eye on everything. Whether it’s about food, pop culture or destinations, our newsroom debates can get pretty heated (usually just in jest ... usually).

So, we’ve decided to launch a new series that allows our most loyal viewers to offer their input and help us settle these debates once and for all.

We can’t promise that everyone in the newsroom will accept the majority opinion, but here’s hoping this series can bring us all some peace and closure.
