I wrote this a few years ago, but I think it’s worthwhile reposting.
This is my first year goblinless.
My kiddo is officially too old to go out for Hallowe’en, and even more than that, too tall.
At just over 6′ tall, the tallest in the school, he is not welcome on Hallowe’en doorsteps. Other kids the same age will be going out, because they’re small.
So, tonight, when the big kids show up on your doorstep (not the ones who show up at 10pm with beards and a pillowcase), be kind, and remember, they’re just kids on the inside, even if they’re tall on the outside.
