Halloween in the second largest retail holiday as far as candy sales is concerned. It’s no wonder, as millions of kids hit the streets to trick or treat each year. Buckets of candy make their way home and at times the loot can last well into December. With so many families wandering the dark streets and neighborhoods, it’s easy for a fun holiday to turn dangerous or deadly. There are some precautions that parents and children should take to ensure a safe evening of trick or treating fun.
A few of these safety measures are outlined below.
It is important to remember your child’s safety when choosing a costume for him or her. Consider that it will be dark outside and choose something light-colored, or accessorize with glow sticks. Reflective tennis st louis cardinals sweatshirt or treat buckets will also help your kids stand out in the dark. The flammability of costumes is also important. Though there are laws regarding the fire resistance of clothing, costumes and other dress up clothes do not fall under these laws. Though you may not expect to be anywhere near a flame, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Choosing a Place to Trick or Treat
Just as important as what your children will be wearing is where they will be wearing it. Many small communities are strapped for money, and therefore streetlights go unfixed and remain dark. Choose a location that is highly frequented, well lit and has adequate room to walk from home to home. Large subdivisions are a great place to trick or treat. Park the car and take an hour to walk around the block and your kids’ buckets may already be filled. Staying in a highly populated part of town is your best bet. Ask around and you are sure to easily find out the hot spots for trick or treating in your city.
Inspecting Your Child’s Candy
Though we like to think the best of our society, the truth is that people still do stupid things that they know will hurt others. Please be sure to inspect your children’s candy before letting them eat any of it. Most hospitals will offer a free x-ray of your child’s loot, to check for any unsafe “additions” to treats such as razorblades or needles. To avoid getting sick, toss out any homemade treats if not received from a well known and trusted source. Candy that appears to be opened should also be tossed in the garbage.
The above precautions are not an all inclusive list of safety measures that you can take, but they will go a long way in keeping your Halloween safe and enjoyable – for you and your kids. Happy Trick or Treating!
