Have A Safe and Fun-Filled Halloween

Halloween is known for tricks, treats, and costumes of all colors, but as October draws to a close, the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, make sure you and your family have a fun-filled, safe Halloween with these tips from USA.gov:

You want the thrills without the chills
Check your local weather report before you head out for some Fright Night fun, and be prepared to bundle up underneath those costumes. Dressing for the occasion will help prevent maladies like hypothermia, and will allow you to enjoy your night, no matter what the weather.

Lost in the graveyard
If you and your family will be participating in the age-old tradition of trick-or-treating, be aware of the area you’ll be visiting and watch out for traffic. Whether it’s your own local street and town, or a theme park with family specials, getting lost in an unfamiliar area can pose a danger to the enjoyment of the evening and your personal safety.

Ghouls, goblins, ghosts, and strangers

If you live in a neighborhood, odds are that you are going to get some visitors this Halloween. If you choose to hand out treats and exchange tricks,be aware of the people you allow inside your home. If there are guests that are unfamiliar to you, hand out candy on your doorstep, and keep the night’s activities outside. Make sure to protect your home from real life scares. Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy, safe and sweet Halloween!
