A friend, whose kids are in high school and college, posed this question on Facebook the other day.
Here's what she wrote:
What do you do when your kids have outgrown the usual Halloween trick or treat tradition? Any ideas on how to make new traditions for Halloween?
I actually trick or treated right through my senior year of high school. And I have vivid memories of local college students asking for candy too on Oct. 31. But I know that most kids these days seem to stop trick-or-treating by the time they get to high school. In fact, Oxford, N.C., says that traditional trick-or-treating is only for kids 12 and under, according to the town's website.
So how have families with older kids marked the holiday together?
