Halloween Safety Tips

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.

Ok, this is actually very accurate. Though, I will point out that I have been on here for almost 4 years, and I feel like the level between boys and girls is fairly equal. I will say, that recently, I believe there have been more girl newbies, but the matter of who you see around most, it cuts pretty close to a tie

Don't ask why, but it does, You are probably a girl reading this right now, and at some point we all meet a lesser spotted guy in the forums. You don't really know they're a guy unless they have a lamborghini for their profile picture. Then you get one in your roleplay, and since you're a little embarrassed to have smooching and girly talks with a REAL LIFE guy in the room, everyone rushes to make their character a tomboy. But soon you will realise that this guy is cool, and he may even become your best friend and you'll be on all the same RPs. Then it's a race to get your character to have a love story with his character. If you meet a guy before you get into RP, sometimes you'll become the dynamic duo that goes around flipping everyone off in the comment section like "WE DON'T GIVE A HOOT!". Basically, this guy is the firetrucking best. Guess who has always had a Lamborghini as a pic :D

So school for 2014 has ended and a lot of you have probably had your graduation. I had mine and hugged all my friends at the end and cried afterwards. I was wondering, who else has cried at or after their graduation? It's actually sad because you realise you're probably never going back there again and if you were in Primary School and most of or even all of your friends are going to different high schools, you're probably never going to see them at school again.
