Trick or Treat: It’s Halloween Safety Month

Don’t let the tricks be on you!

To a kid, dressing up and scarfing down mountains of sugar makes this one of the best nights of the year. But let’s not forget that costumes, fading daylight, and bags full of candy can also pose hazards if you’re not properly prepared. To ensure your All Hallows’ Eve goes off without a hitch, we’ve got a goodie bag of suggestions for a super Halloween night.

If you’re heading to houses where you don’t know the occupants, exercise extra caution. Throw away any homemade goodies, and inspect the store-bought treats thoroughly for any signs of tampering.*

*According to, Mental Floss,, Vox, and a slew of other reliable sources, no one has ever been charged with randomly handing out poisoned candy to trick-or-treaters.

Don't forget your pet!

The ideal situation is to put Fido and Snowball in a separate room, away from the front of the house, so they don’t get all worked up every time the doorbell rings. It will also prevent them from hightailing it out the door every time it opens.

Are you running out of room to store all your awesome holiday decorations? Maybe a new home will suit your needs better. Let’s talk!
