Stay Safe on Halloween

Randi Goldman, Staff Writer

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because well, you can be whatever you’d like for a day. Halloween is fun, but halloween is also a time where people think that they can do things to hurt people. There have been many stories of children getting candy that has been tampered with, people who have been chased or even people being killed on Halloween. Here are some tips to help you stay safe, while you have fun!

  • Never go trick-or-treating alone.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             -It’s more fun to go with friends anyways.
  • Walk on sidewalks whenever you can                                                                                                                                                                                                                 -This can help you avoid getting hit by a car.
  • Wear glow sticks                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     – They help with visibility.
  • If someone is following you/ making you nervous, let an adult know.                                                                                                                                                       – People are crazy, it’s better to be safe than sorry
  • Check candy/ candy wrappers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          -People often tamper with candy when trying to be mischievous on halloween.


Halloween is supposed to be fun and being safe is not only easy, but it will help you make sure your night isn’t ruined by someone’s lame attempt to harm/scare you. Whatever you decide to do have fun, and be safe.
