Halloween Is for Kids

KSAL Staff - October 25, 2016 7:32 am

I have a confession. I hate Halloween.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great holiday for kids. Dress up in a silly costume, get free candy. What’s to hate about that. But I feel there should be a cutoff age. For me that age was about 11. You could probably talk me into extending the age limit to 13 or 14 but once you hit High School, the free candy party is over.

If you own a car, you shouldn’t be trick or treating.

If you have kids of your own, you shouldn’t be trick or treating.

If you’d prefer a rib-eye to Laffy Taffy, you shouldn’t be trick or treating.

Now as an adult if you want to put on a silly costume, have at it. As for me, I’ll pass. After all I look silly enough the way it is.

Its to bad you feel that way, I’ve had tons of teenagers and others above 13 or 14 who come to our house to trick or treat, they are dressed up and are in the spirit having fun. What else is there for them to do? Halloween is a time fro everyone to have fun and to laugh at our fears. Who are we to tell someone they are to old to have fun. What difference does it make who we give the candy to? Eighty percent of it ends up in the trash any way. You look like a royals fan, how would you like it if we said you should stop, because your to old or because you don’t live in Missouri. I say let people enjoy the small things, if i can generate a smile on Halloween by giving candy to tanager then it makes me happy
