Back in my day, we would trick or treat as many days as we could. That sometimes meant going to public events or making Halloween last at least two nights. Halloween is on a Monday this year, so I'm sure that we will see little ninjas and princesses in neighborhoods on Sunday, and maybe even Saturday.
The First Rule of Trick or Treating
If you want trick-or-treaters to come to your house, make sure your porch light is on. Usually, the kids will head out around 4:00 PM and they could be out looking for candy until 8:00 PM or 9:00 PM. Oh, and if you run out of candy, don't forget to turn that light out.
If you are going to let your kids trick or treat, make sure you visit neighborhoods that you are familiar with. Bring your flashlight! The light from your phone will not be bright enough once the sun sets. Of course, you should check the candy, to make sure that none has been tampered with. And as a parent fee, you might need to take some of that sugar off of their hands. See the wine and Halloween candy guide below.
- Costume Safety - If your child has a dark costume, try to add some reflective tape Make sure they can see through the mask. Check the length of the costume, too. Some of them are very easy to trip on.
- Pet Safety - If you are going to have trick-or-treaters or even a party at your house, make sure your pets don't escape.
