Hmmmmmmm .... very interesting. My first thought was diaper rash when I was a baby, but then it occurred to me that it didn't take me a lifetime to know something was terribly wrong.

I am going to have to put on my DATonian thinking cap to figure this one out.

:D :D Funny one DATo, diaper is known as a nappy over here, either way there would be something seriously wrong if it took a lifetime to realize.
Clue: Maybe "achieve" would be a better word.

Not white hair
More clues:
Most men and women are driven by it, you can have it at an early age. It is within us all one way or another.
Crossword clue if you need it: Eight letters, begins with a vowel.

Nope. Much much smaller than a pumpkin. It has less to do with Halloween than a pumpkin but you might see it a lot AT Halloween time. But in truth it is popular ALL the time. When you do see it at Halloween it is usually quite close to the front door of people's homes.

@Nerea @Lunastella

Sorry, I missed your response earlier Nerea.

Yes, but the answer to the riddle is a specific brand of candy.
