It’s the day of ghosts and goblins, and tricks or treats. It’s Halloween, a favorite holiday for many, especially the young ones.
It’s the day when kids get to dress up in a costume, celebrate at school and walk around the neighborhood in search of candy.
What more can a kid ask for?
For parents, though, it can be a little more complicated. The most important thing, when the sun goes down today, is being safe. And that goes for everyone..
The most common injury on Halloween is pedestrian injuries to children. Watch out for little trick-or-treaters.
And, of course, be careful with the candy. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents to carefully inspect for signs of tampering, and then allocate portions to be eaten in the weeks after Halloween.
Too much in one night can cause unwanted problems.
