The night everyone anticipates for one whole month of October is finally here. Halloween. Trick-or-treating is a fun way to spend time with your friends and family, while stocking up on your favorite candy. It’s also a nice way to be involved in your community if you decide to stay in and give candy to the eager trick-or-treaters. To make the night a safe and enjoyable one, here are some tips and tricks:

  • Plan a route in advance. It’ll make your trip a lot easier and stress free if you know where you’re going.
  • It’s best to walk in a group. Being with other people makes it a safer environment.
  • Wear comfortable shoes. You’ll be walking around the whole night, so wearing comfy shoes will keep the outing enjoyable.
  • Bring a flashlight or something that will keep you visible to all. It’s important to stay lit up at night, so drivers will be able to see you.
  • Don’t forget to check the candy you receive. If the candy is opened or not it its original wrapper, it might not be safe to eat.
  • If you decide to hand out candy, make sure your front porch light is on so trick-or-treaters know that you have candy for them.

With these tips kept in mind, Halloween night can be a pleasurable one this year. Have fun and stay safe.
