Signs You’re Too Old To Trick Or Treat
Tomorrow is Halloween and it's going to be a cold night with temperatures around 45. It's definitely a warm costume evening, in fact, it's cold enough to wear my Tigger outfit.
My daughter, Tara, is going to be 14 years old on Saturday and she still LOVES to trick or treat. Last year, she was turned away from one house because the lady said that she was too old.
I say that if kids take the time to dress up in a costume and want to go door to door then let them. Our kids grow up so fast and before you know it, they'll be gone. Besides there are many other things that they could be doing instead.
So how can we really tell that they are too old to trick or treat? Here are the signs:
You ask for high fiber candy only
You have to choose a costume that doesn't dislodge your hairpiece... or your hip
You get winded from knocking on the door and then you say "Trick or...can I just sit down on your porch?"
You ask other kids to chew the candy for you
You avoid going to the house where your ex-wife lives... also awkward if you knock on a door of an ex-girlfriend and the kid looks a little like you.
Happy Halloween to all young and old and have a BOOtiful night.
