I had to roll my eyes as I flipped to the news this week and once again the featured stories were dishing out a whole lot of fear. It seemed a bit overdramatic and completely morbid to sit around watching the form of a little kid in a goblin costume go up in flames, but there it was.
On second thought, though, it had me thinking maybe I should move that jack-o-lantern on my front step to a different spot. So I’ll give the newscasters the credit they deserve. Perhaps they saved what would have been a toasted kid or two on my front steps!
As your little ones head out for festivities this weekend and into next week for Halloween, it’s good to keep some trusty safety tips in mind to make sure spooky fun doesn’t turn into spooky nightmare. Here the CDC put together a list for a Safe Halloween. Some of it may have you rolling your eyes for the obviousness, but on second-thought it might have you making some changes that will leave this holiday a treat instead of a trick.
Happy Halloween and Fall Festivities!
