Halloween is traditionally a holiday that can be celebrated by the whole family.

There are costumes for kids young and old, and for adults, but some parts of Virginia are now putting age restrictions on trick-or-treating.

According to WAVY, the NBC affiliate in Hampton Roads, many towns and cities in the Norfolk, Va., area have restrictions on trick-or-treating.

In towns like Chesapeake, Yorktown, Suffolk, Hampton Roads, Norfolk and Virginia Beach, you have to be 12 or younger to go door-to-door asking for candy. Parents and other adults are allowed to chaperone younger kids but are not allowed to collect candy for themselves.

There is also a cut-off time for trick-or-treating.  Police have been ordered to give out citations to anyone knocking on doors after 8 p.m.
