Halloween is originally a Christian holiday that is celebrated the night before All Hallows’ Day, which is more commonly known as All Saints’ Day. The word Halloween means “All Hallows’ Eve” in Scots, a language derived from English that was spoken in southern Scotland and continues to be spoken in Northern Island. Over the centuries, Halloween has evolved into a holiday focusing on costumes and sweets.
A few rules for safe trick-or-treating should be observed.
- Never allow children to go trick-or-treating alone.
- Always trick-or-treat in groups led by a trusted adult.
- Use reflective accessories on costumes and bags to alert motorists.
- Never, under any circumstances, allow your children to handle much less eat something they were given by a stranger no matter how normal they may seem.
- Finally, under no circumstances should children ever enter a stranger’s home when trick-or-treating.
