Tips To Create The Best Halloween Ever

October 05, 2021

 It's that time of year again - Halloween! We all know it takes a lot of work to get ready for such an awesome holiday. But with these tips, you'll be able to create the best Halloween ever.

Treats By The Buckets 

First off, make sure you have enough candy on hand. Everyone loves getting free sugar during this spooky night and will definitely come knocking at your door if they see signs like "free candy" or "trick-or-treat." It is also good etiquette to buy some more than usual because people usually bring their friends along. And what kid doesn't want more free goodies? So stock up early and often. The top tip is to book your kid's dental services the next day to get all the cavities scrubbed off. 

Did You Know? Halloween was originally called All Hallows Eve, which means "eve of the holy evening." It was a day to remember all saints.

Too Much Spook?

Also, decorate your house. Kids definitely appreciate a home with creative and appealing décor. But make sure you don't go overboard. If it looks like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie, they might not want to come in at all. Instead, try some spooky spider webs or fun seasonal lights for the kids' safety. Another great tip is to get decorations that can be used year after year. This way, you won't have to go out and rebuy everything for next Halloween. For example, try some cobwebs or fake spiders in your house windows. These are not only easy to use but will add a spooky touch when light shines through them at night too.

Dress-Up Fun

Make sure everyone gets into the spirit by wearing costumes from head to toe! Have fun with it. Especially if they're kids because this could lead to their favorite TV shows characters like SpongeBob SquarePants or The Muppets (just kidding). But really, though, there's no limit to what you can dress up as. Be aware that costumes are always great and dangerous because children can get tangled up in them very quickly. Make sure no strings are hanging down around their neck area too. If possible, have someone else dress them so you know everything is safe and secure before any nighttime trick-or-treating begins.

Did You Know? The original Halloween costumes were worn for protection from ghosts and other nasty things that went bump in the night.

Safety First

And don't forget the kids' safety while trick-or-treating. Make sure they have a flashlight or glow sticks so cars can spot them easier if it gets dark out earlier than expected (which happens every year). Also, make sure they stay together with their group of friends. But definitely not too close because then there's no room for any "surprises" like candy apples covered in peanut butter (gross!). Finally, always remember to carry extra money on hand if your little monsters get hungry after all that candy consumption!

Did You Know? There was a time when trick-or-treating wasn't allowed because many thought it would encourage children to lie and steal. So it took a while for people to accept this holiday as a fun, safe night of spookiness.

And finally, have an amazing Halloween! Don't forget the most important thing, dress up in costumes that will scare even yourself from all those scary movies you watched earlier today (and no joke). Also, remember not to do anything dumb like going out into the woods by yourself after midnight or walking around alone on dark streets at night. Remember safety first! Have fun with your friends and family.
