Trick or Treat Safety
Posted on October 31, 2013
There is one night of the year when it definitely pays to own a home in Northwest Florida – Halloween! We hope you have your pumpkins carved and are ready to walk your ghouls and goblins about or greet the neighbors with plenty of treats.
No matter what your plans are for Halloween, if you’re a new homeowner on the Gulf Coast there are some etiquette rules you should be aware of. First up, if Halloween isn’t your thing, make sure to turn your porch light off. If yours is motion censored, adjust it for the evening so you won’t be bothered by the kids looking for tricks and sweet goodies. If you do want to hand out candy, flip the light on, as well as the creepy music, flying ghosts, wiched witch inflatable and anything else fun and festive you have. Also, clear your yard of hazardous debris. No one wants the neighbors to trip and fall on their way to the door.
If you will be walking friends or kids around your neighborhood, keep in mind the lights are usually dimmed for this night. Carry glowsticks or flashlights to be sure cars and other pedestrians can see you clearly. And, above all else, have fun and a happy Halloween!
