We simply LOVE Halloween each year and hope all of you do, too! Most important thing to remember, though, deals with surviving THIS year’s Halloween to enjoy next year’s Halloween, too!

So, without further ado, please enjoy the following Halloween safety tips we found on the CDC (Center for Disease Control) web site using all the letters in the term ‘Safe Halloween’… (with our comments in parentheses!):

  • S – Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible. (Think of it as.. do not run with scissors, pencils or other sharp, pointed objects because falling on them would SUCK!)
     
  • A – Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult. (Scary Halloween spirits and fellow Halloween revelers w/ bad intentions tend to avoid large groups and trusted adults!)
     
  • F – Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you. (If they cannot see you, then they cannot avoid you. Getting crushed by a car on Halloween – or any day! – would SUCK!)
     
  • E – Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat. (Wait until you get home and look over your candy stash carefully w/ an adult before diving in. No need to get sick or worse by ingesting candy whose wrapper has come open by accident or on purpose!)
     
     
     
  • H – Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t run from house to house. (See previous comment about not getting crushed by a car!)
     
  • A – Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation. (Not all makeup undergoes the same testing before hitting the market… and some may cause unpleasant acne, bumps, rashes, etc!)
     
  • L – Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible. (You should look both ways and use crosswalks whenever possible EVERY day and not just on Halloween!)
     
  • L – Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses. (Prescription lenses require a prescription not just because of their ability to alter/correct a person’s vision, but also because prescription lenses must also meet specific quality criteria… and non-prescription contact lenses available in costume shops, online and in convenience stores do not!)
     
  • O – Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe. (Again, see earlier reference regarding not getting crushed by a car… because that would SUCK!)
     
  • W – Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls. (Having the ability to SEE where you’re going and also not have to worry about tripping over a loose-fitting costume makes Halloween safer and MUCH more enjoyable!)
     
  • E – Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. (Commercially wrapped Halloween treats in sealed packaging offer the best protection against accidental, incidental and intentional tainting!)
     
  • E – Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers. (These rules ought to apply EVERY day and not just on Halloween!)
     
  • N – Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes. (Fire and flames do not take a day off because of Halloween so steer clear of them both and keep your costume away from them, too!)

We want everyone to have lots of fun on Halloween — just like we will! — but we also want everyone to survive the frights and scares of Halloween 2013 so they can get frightened and scared all over again next year!

As usual we had a bit of fun around our place with loud scary music, loud creepy sounds, strobe lights, black lights, spider webs made of yarn, big fuzzy spiders suspended on yarn spider webs, orange porch lights, fog/smoke machines, ‘dancing’ laser lights through fog/smoke… and Sasquatch made his first appearance this year!

Though he did not stay long, he did scare the crap out of babies, little kids AND adults during his visit. Check out these exclusive photos of the ever-elusive (and actually very well-mannered) Sasquatch!

A hearty thanks to all the trick’or’treat visitors last night and to Sasquatch for stopping by. We hope to see everyone we saw this year in a year’s time!

In the meantime…

Other holidays (like Christmas, for example!) loom right around the corner and if you have not already found the perfect Holiday Decorations, lights, ornaments, Christmas Tree, wreath, garland, etc., then we highly suggest you check out the Christmas Blog on FroggWear.Com!
