Today's social dilemma came about after my friends and I were talking about the new law in some towns in Virginia that have made it against the law for anyone 13 or older to go trick or treating. Seriously....against the law. In fact the stiffest penalty could be six months in jail for mom or dad. I thought it was the craziest thing I've ever heard. Yet some of my buddies in the neighborhood thought while jail time is a little tough, they like the idea of taking the older kids out of the mix. I don't have a problem with older kids trick or treating. Every kid ages differently. Heck, I would still trick or treat now if I didn't think I'd get laughed out of the neighborhood. I'd donate most of the candy, but there's something about the fun and innocence of dressing up and going door to door. So I say let anyone trick or treat who wants to. Just a couple of caveats...you must be dressed up, and you must be kind. No playing toilet paper or soaping tricks on anyone. So what do you think? Virginia has it right making it against the law, or do you agree that anyone should be able to trick or treat? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
