Halloween is supposed to be fun and exciting, but it's not really supposed to be scary.
There's a lot of stuff going on -- especially for parents. Costumes, carving pumpkins, handing out candy and taking the little ones trick-or-treating all have to be done.
I live in a destination neighborhood. We have neighbors that really get into the spirit (pun intended) of Halloween. They set up haunted houses and give hay rides. Basically, they pull in kids from all over town. There are kids and cars everywhere -- a recipe for disaster, just add alcohol or distraction.
Be safe this year. Follow some basic rules: wear bright clothes, make sure there's an adult with the kids at all times and only cross at corners and crosswalks.
Halloween is my favorite holiday. Keep it safe and have a good time.
