Have a Happy and Safe Halloween

Happy Halloween from Louie

OCTOBER 31, 2015

Tonight, around sundown, trick-or-treating begins across the nation and in a few other countries in the world.  The most popular time for children to be out is between 5:30 pm and 9:30 pm.  The average age of trick-or-treaters is 12 years and younger.  Most teens enjoy private parties and spooky events of their own.

Here’re some tips for enjoying a safe and fun Halloween night.
1.    Make sure to trick or treat with an adult, especially if you are 12 years or younger.  If you want to go with an older sibling or babysitter, make sure a parent approves.
2.    Observe all traffic rules.  School crossing guards will not be monitoring crosswalks during trick-or-treating.  Make sure you cross the street at corners and observe traffic signals and crosswalks.

a.    Hold the hand of the adult with you.
b.    Look left, right, and left again to make sure there are no cars coming from either direction.
c.    Keep looking left to right while you are crossing.

3.    Stay on sidewalks or paths.  Avoid walking on the street.
4.    Don’t carry or use electronic devices while trick-or-treating because they are a distraction.  (The device could easily be dropped and broken as well.)
5.    Make your costume bright and colorful.  Add some reflective tape to belts, shirts, shoes, or candy bags.  The idea is to be visible!!
6.    Avoid using a face mask, if possible, as masks are hot and sweaty and can obstruct your view.  Try face paint and makeup instead.
7.    Glo-sticks are easy to find and cheap and provide extra visibility for trick-or-treaters.  Try Wal-Mart http://tinyurl.com/nb4rbk9.    Also, try a dollar store, like Dollar Tree http://tinyurl.com/qjj6hhy.
8.    Check local churches for events, such as “trunk or treat”, which has become popular in the Southern U.S. in the past few years.  There are also many churches with fall carnivals and are alternatives to door-to-door trick-or-treating.  These festivals provide candy options and many times have rides, bounce houses, big slides, and photo opportunities.

Have Fun!!!!
