Halloween Safety Tips at Little Creek
October 15, 2013
We all know what happens on October 31: little ghosts and goblins suddenly rule the streets, and sweet treats can be found behind every door. As long as you use common sense, trick-or-treating is one of the safest and most enjoyable family activities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has some reminders to keep Halloween happy for everyone. They include:
– Never trick-or-treat alone, or without an adult present.
– Mark costumes and bags with reflective tape to make sure drivers can see you.
– Slow down. Walk. It's easy to trip over costumes or run into things in the dark!
– Resist the temptation to wear novelty/decorative contact lenses. They can damage your eyes.
– Never enter a house without a parent or guardian.
– If you see bats, witches, or flying skeletons, duck.
OK, we made the last one up. But check out the full list here, and don't eat too much candy!
