Best wishes on Halloween

Miss Orondo IMG

Ghosts and goblins will soon be knocking on your door. However, these days, it’s probably superheroes, princesses, witches, vampires, and zombies.

Be sure the front of your house is lighted and doesn’t have any items in your driveway or on your doorstep that children could trip over. And, remember not to place candles or jack o’ lanterns where children’s costumes may brush against them.

For other safety tips, see “Tips for Keeping your Halloween Celebration Safe and Healthy.”

If you’re looking for ways to get rid of too much Halloween candy, see “Leftover Halloween Candy: What to Do With It” for suggestions, such as dole it out or donate it to a food bank.

Another idea is to donate it to a dentist participating in a Halloween Candy Buy Back program. The idea is to reduce the amount of candy kids will eat after Halloween to help prevent cavities. The candy is sent members of the U.S. military.

Happy Halloween. I hope your celebration is the best ever.
