HALLOWEEN SAFETY

Well, it’s that time of year again. Trick ot treaters at your door. Here’s a few things to consider if you are elderly or live alone. Do not open your door for trick or treaters who are bigger than you and have masks on. Due to the day and age we live in and the insane things we see on the news, this is an inherent danger. You can leave a plastic pumpkin in your walkway filled with candy for the little ones. Hopefully, a teenager will not come and dump the whole thing in their bag,. This happened to me one year. Hence now lights are off, blinds closed. Usually, I don’t get any knocks on the door anymore, so it’s effective.

One year, when my children were much younger, we’d go all over the neighborhood. All candy had to be inspected before eating. One year my six year old opened a mini mounds bar to find straight pins inside. Alarming? Yes it was! From that year forward, my friends and I would take turns having Halloween party at home. All children came in costume, played games n won prizes. Dunked for apples, musical chairs, pin the leaves on the pumpkin or eye on a skeleton etc. All got goodie bag on the way home and had lots of fun.

Most importantly, they were safe. While its a little late posting this blog, it is something you may want to plan next year. Turn your house into a haunted house, rotate at different friends homes each year.
