Thief Returns Giant Stolen Pumpkin To Its 9-Year-Old Owner

Charlie Brown might be pleased to hear that at least one little boy didn’t have to suffer through a big Halloween disappointment. After winning a giant pumpkin at a local Oktoberfest by correctly guessing its weight, a nine-year-old boy was upset when someone stole it off his porch. All’s well that ends well, though — the thief apparently realized the error of his ways and returned the gigantic gourd with a note of apology. “I’m really sorry about taking your pumpkin. It was wrong of me. You earned the pumpkin.” [York Dispatch]
