The spookiest season of the year is once again upon us. Halloween is finally here! It’s time to put on your spookiest costume and stroll the scary neighborhoods for candy. Halloween will always be about having fun, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be safe. So in honor of the season of house parties, and trick or treating, here are the Forge’s Halloween safety tips!
For all the people trick or treating this year, stay safe on the streets by making sure you wear bright colors that can be seen by drivers. If dark colors are essential to your outfit, slap some reflective tape on your booty and get out there and get some candy!
Older siblings all know the pain of being forced to take their younger brother or sister out with us on Halloween. If you find yourself stuck with your lame siblings ,and you know you and your friends are about to go wild that night, and Let’s be real here, the rumors that celebrities that live in Montecito hand out ipods, iphones and ipads are not true. The only thing you’re getting at one of their houses is either a king size Hersheys, or a restraining order. So, for your safety, stay away from the celebrities, you don’t want any trouble with the law on Halloween.
Trick-or-Treaters should also be wary of drunk drivers. Make sure to always be aware when crossing streets and intersections, and if you are supervising a younger child make sure you have your eyes on them at all times.CHECK YOUR CANDY WRAPPERS! You don’t want to end up in the ER because you decided to take a bite of a chocolate bar that was handed to you without the wrapper on. Check the packaging of suspicious looking candy for tears and other anomalies, to ensure your night ends without a call to Poison Control. Check the candy of younger siblings too; you don’t want their Halloween to be ruined by some rigged candy.
That concludes the Forge’s Halloween safety tips. Remember to always be somewhere you feel safe, and always be aware of your surroundings. Halloween is an exciting night with lots of fun to be had, but don’t all that fun blind you from the very real dangers of Halloween night. Stay safe Dons.
