Back in my day, we would trick or treat as many days as we could. That sometimes meant going to public events or making Halloween last at least two nights. Halloween is on a Tuesday this year, and we've already seen little ninjas and princesses at local truck-or-treat events.

Halloween Safety

If you are going to let your kids trick or treat, make sure you visit neighborhoods that you are familiar with. Bring your flashlight! The light from your phone will not be bright enough once the sun sets. Of course, you should check the candy, to make sure that none has been tampered with. And as a parent fee, you might need to take some of that sugar off of their hands.

  • Costume Safety - If your child has a dark costume, try to add some reflective tape Make sure they can see through the mask. Check the length of the costume, too. Some of them are very easy to trip on.
  • Pet Safety - If you are going to have trick-or-treaters or even a party at your house, make sure your pets don't escape.
  • For children who are old enough to trick-or-treat by themselves, make sure they always stay in a group of 3 or more and have a specific check-in time.
  •  Children and teens of all ages should NEVER walk inside a residence and/or building, even when invited inside.
