Day Twenty Nine: Halloween Safety
We’re getting closer and closer to Halloween. My wife and I took our daughter to an event at the mall today to let the kids trick-or-treat. She’s been a bit under the weather, so we thought this would be a good way to lift her spirits. At first, she was a bit overwhelmed, but she got the hang of it and put a smile on her face. But, the older kids (and crazy parents) were treating the event like it was kill-or-be-killed-zombie-armageddon-we-need-the-candy-to-live. In the process, we all got bumped and shoved. I couldn’t believe how people were acting – it was a free candy feeding frenzy. So, since no one cared about the well-being of a 21-month-old cutie dressed up as a monkey, I thought it was time to drop some safety tips. And, if you don’t follow the rules and traditions of Halloween, all you have to do is look to the movie Trick ‘r Treat to see what happens when you break the rules.
To help you with the rest of the safety tips and rules, here are some cheesy safety videos I found on YouTube.
Sadly, we only have two days left. Tomorrow will be a post about Devil’s Night, and Monday will be a Halloween post. My wife also mentioned today she was bummed I didn’t do a post about fun sitcom Halloween episodes, so if I can squeeze a double post in, I might just do that. Have a great night!
