Growing up we all loved Halloween. The candy, great costumes and the opportunity to be publicly silly or scary. We become teens and the allure of Halloween soon diminishes. It is no longer cool to knock on doors and beg for treats, unless we are taking our younger siblings in tow. You’re told you’re too old for Halloween! As adults, it suddenly becomes ok to celebrate Halloween again.
Now we are dressing up and being silly with kids of our own. We are vicariously enjoying the fun with our children and “testing” their candy. Our children grow up and now it’s our grand-kids who are getting ready for Halloween and the ritual costumes. We standby as spectators as we are told we are too old for Halloween.
I don’t miss the candy but I do find myself yearning for the dress up and the delight of being silly and scary myself. The older we become the more we desire and feel the need to release our inner child. I finally released that peer pressure and decided I am not too old for anything including Halloween.
This year, I’m dressing up and I don’t care if it’s cool or not!
My house is decorated with skulls and pumpkins. It’s fun for me. Halloween is for everyone and at any age !! Be safe and enjoy your treats.
They say you are too old to Trick or Treat when:
10. You keep knocking on your own front door.
9. You remove your false teeth to change your appearance.
8. You ask for soft high fiber candy only.
7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.
6. People say: ‘Great Boris Karloff Mask,’ And you’re not wearing a mask.
5. When the door opens you yell, ‘Trick or…’And you can’t remember the rest.
4. By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.
3. You have to carefully choose a costume that doesn’t dislodge your hairpiece
2. You’re the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker
1. You keep having to go home to pee.
