It’s not just the Trick or Treating that makes Halloween fun for me; it’s also my birthday! My husband is one of the few men that can say he’s married to a real witch, and get away with it!
As a child I spent my birthdays Trick or Treating, and as an adult I spent it walking with the kids as they went door to door. The number one rule for us was only going to houses with their lights on. Well times have definitely changed, and I want to share some safety tips with you to think about.
1. When picking a costume with a mask, check the following:
Can you easily see out of it?
Can it be quickly removed?
Is it well ventilated for easy breathing?
2. Does your costume have a bottom?
Is it easy to walk in?
If it’s an adult costume, can you drive in it?
3. Before you head out knocking on doors, take time to check the national sex offender registry for your neighborhood. Most local city and county agencies have this information available. Avoid these homes.
