3 Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween can be a fun time of the year. Since it is right around the corner, you’re probably trying to figure out what or who you’re going to dress up as.

There are probably all types of parties going on that you’re thinking about attending, not to mention the trick or treating.

Hey! I don’t care what anyone says, you are never too old to go trick or treating. Well, maybe when you get a certain age, but that’s when you use a younger family member as an excuse.

This time of year can be fun, but it’s also a time of year when you should be cautious. Here are 3 Halloween safety tips to follow to ensure you’re safe while having a blast.

Travel in Groups

If you plan on walking to and from your destination, make sure you have someone with you. Have you ever heard the term, “The freaks come out at night?” Well, they really do.

The last thing you would ever need is someone rolling up on you in the middle of the night while you’re by yourself. Be smart and travel in pairs.

Don’t Drink and Drive

I think we all know that the legal drinking age in the United States is 21. In other countries it’s different. If you’re unsure of what the legal age limit is where you live, be sure to check.

I was a teen once too and even though I never drank, I had friends who did. I don’t recommend you drink if you’re under the legal age limit. However, if you do have a driver’s license, please don’t drink and drive.

I can’t tell you enough how dangerous it is not to mention the lives you’re endangering. Even if you’ve only had a few drinks and you’re positive you can drive… DON’T!

Look After Your Siblings

If you were forced to take your little brother or sister trick or treating, please look after them. As much as you probably hate to do it, they are your family.

It’s easy to let them run off and tell them to stay close. The thing of it is, if you’re with your friends having a good time, it’s easy to look away for a split second and when you turn back around, your young one has vanished.

Your sibling(s) as well as your parents are depending on you to keep them safe. After all, Halloween only comes once a year. How much trouble could it be?

So, dress up goofy, eat some candy, party like a rock star, have the time of your life and be safe.
