Staying Safe for Trick or Treating in 2012
I remember trick-or-treating held during the day time on a weekend day in the fall for my entire childhood. In the last few years trick-or-treat in Manchester, has been held on Halloween evening. This has brought some mixed feelings about having trick-or treat at night, we “Manchesterites” are used to having trick-or-treat during daylight hours. If we wanted to trick-or-treat in the evening we would have to visit the neighborhoods of the surrounding towns. Whether there are trick-or-treaters lining your streets on a crisp fall day, or a spooky autumn evening, we still must keep safety our #1 mission during the trick-or-treat season. Here are a few safety tips that never get old!
- Trick-or-treat with friends and family, not alone.
- Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
- Check your candy before you eat it. Make sure there are no holes or openings.
- Trick-or-treat with flashlights so drivers and other trick-or-treaters can see you.
- Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks when you can.
- Use sidewalks! If there are none, do your best to stay off the actual road.
- Accept, but don’t eat home-made treats.
- Only go into homes (even the cool haunted ones) if you’re with an adult.
- Stay away from fire while you’re in costume, especially open candles.
