Almost everything in life comes with an age recommendation, whether it be films, games (0-99!), sex, smoking, driving a car, but most of them are a start by age – aside from games, which have both start and finish, and are a great disappointment to all those who have made the full century. Aside from rebukes from parents, teachers and boyfriends, there are few things where it can be said you’re too old.
Now, it would appear, someone wants to change all that, and they’re starting with the traditional Halloween Trick or Treat. Made it to fourteen and thinking about beginning your driving license, as some States allow? Sorry, no more sweet or sour for you!

Just coming into your second childhood, or believing that life begins at forty? You’re out of the fold too.
I always thought it was only Christmas that some green people with comical ears and noses wanted to spoil, now it appears that the Grinch is expanding his work and attacking Halloween. Better warn the Easter Bunny, before it’s too late, because once these Grinch people get going, there’s no stopping their meanness!
