When you get older, your relationship to Halloween changes. As a kid, you care about the candy. As an adult, you care more about the costume and how you can make it either sexy or a terrible pun (or a sexy pun, but those are the only three options). When you grow old, though, all you want to do on Halloween is stay at home and chow down on some nice pumpkin with friends. At least, that's what these Galapagos tortoises at the San Diego Zoo are happy to do. The tortoises age in range from 90-something to 130-years-old (except for one spry under-90 youngin' who's probably, like, 87), and if they're any indication, slowly eating pumpkins is the best way to spend Halloween when you've lived for about a century.
