Are you ready for Halloween?

Written On October 25, 2017

The spookiest night of the year is just around the corner patiently waiting to surprise you!

Whether you are trick-or-treating alongside your little ones, spending the evening on door duty, or looking for a night out with friends, we want your Halloween to be as safe and enjoyable as possible.

For those of us chaperoning mini monsters and tiny witches, trick-or-treating wouldn’t be trick-or-treating without a few traditional obstacles.

Storage – Make sure to bring extra bags or convince your little ones to play tricks instead! You can always dig into the leftovers yourself, or bring a bag to work.

Stamina – As your little ones eat more and more loot, their energy tends to spike. Ten houses can quickly become twenty, and sometimes a whole other neighbourhood is added to the list. Make sure to bring a scarf or down jacket. Better yet, brew a hot cup of tea or coffee and bring it along. This can be chilly business!

Planning – Running from door to door in the dark on a sugar high is a challenge for kids and adults. Try crafting some sort of plan before you set out for the evening. That way you don’t knock on the same door twice!

For those of us on the other side of the candy bowl – don’t be afraid to dress up and decorate! It builds suspense for the kids and helps the adults survive the evening. Chocolate is so much better when it’s been given to you by Wonderwoman. When choosing your treats for the evening, make sure to have options for everyone, including those with food allergies! Stickers, glow sticks and other non-food treat options are always a good idea. In honour of Food Allergy Research and Education’s Teal Pumpkin Project, paint one of your pumpkins teal to let trick-or-treaters know you have safe options for everyone! To learn more about the Teal Pumpkin Project, visit: www.foodallergycanada.ca/teal-pumpkin-project

If you’re planning to spend Halloween with an adult crowd, be sure to check out Casa Loma’s Legends of Horror. It’s back this year with a bang, or several bangs, shrieks, and cobwebs. With a $1.5 Million budget, Liberty Entertainment Group has designed and decorated the classic Toronto landmark to scare each and every one of you. This haunted tour includes both the castle interior and the gardens. It’s well worth screaming over.

Whichever night you’re planning to have, be safe and have fun!
