Hard to believe that it's time for Halloween. I know that my house is full of candy, the pumpkins are carved, now all I am doing is waiting for the witching hour.
In preparation for tonight, here are some safety ideas for parents and kids alike:
1. Go out in groups with at least one adult chaperone.
2. Don't wear masks that obstruct your vision.
3. Don't wear long costumes that you could trip over.
4. Allow knock on doors that have their porch lights on.
I grew up knowing that last rule well. If a porch light was off, that family was no participating in Halloween. Same goes if you run out of candy. Turn off the porch light. Heck, I've even done it during dinner time.
If you have pets, make sure they are in a nice, quiet room to themselves. Halloween can be frightening for them.
Happy Halloween! Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful costumes tonight. Stay safe.
