Halloween Safety Tips

Oct 30, 2015

From wearing a safe Halloween costume to checking your treats before eating them, find out how to stay safe on the spookiest night of the year!

Getting Dressed

It's important to wear a costume that will scare a few souls, but it's just as important to wear something that'll keep you safe. Choose a costume color that's visible at night like white, but if you want to wear a dark color, stick reflective tape on your costume, loot bag and props (like swords or brooms). Your costume should also be just the right length so that you don't trip and fall all over yourself. If you're wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough to see out of and the mouth area is roomy enough for you to breathe easily.

Trick-or-Treating

You should always trick-or-treat with a group of friends, as well as your parents or another adult. Carry a flashlight or glow stick to light your way, and stick to the sidewalks of well-lit neighborhoods instead of taking shortcuts through backyards and alleys. Only go up to houses that have their lights on and never, ever enter a house to collect your treats! Most importantly, look both ways before you cross the street to check for oncoming cars, bikes and low-flying brooms!

Digging In

We know you want to dig into your goody bag ASAP, but your parents need to check your candy before you eat it! Throw out anything that's unwrapped or homemade, unless you personally know who made it and gave it to you. If you have a younger sibling, it's a good idea to get rid of any treats that could be easily choked on, like gum, peanuts and small, hard candies.

That is an offence punishable by cannibalism. One does not simply misspell Hanni Lecter's last name.

A phone is the core to life. It gives us a way to live. Some say that if you bury it, anything could grow. A tree could grow, providing oxygen. A kind of food could grow. But, you never know for sure what'll you receive. That's the true magic. What is after death?

Air is something we cannot, I repeat cannot, live without. We have to eat it with everything we eat, and we can eat it when we aren't eating anything. It's a biscuit but Idk what it's made of. If we don't eat it, we'll turn into sticks. What is a phone?
