Halloween safety is the first consideration, and Halloween path markers can help with providing a safe environment. As children scamper from house to house, they often get off the path. If the path is lighted it might just encourage safe behavior.
Since Halloween path markers come in a variety of types, it is important to pay attention to the details before making a purchase. Many are battery operated, but some require wires. Wires, especially wires designed to blend with the background so as not to detract from the decorations, can themselves contribute to an unsafe situation. Wires, especially difficult to see wires, can become a tripping hazard.
I consider these as being used year to year. There are Christmas path markers, in fact there is an abundance of them. I do not know of any other holiday versions, but you could always put something together.
blackspanielgallery, Thank you for the practical information and product lines. Are the path markers expected to last one Halloween or more? Are there equivalent themes for other holidays, such as July 4th and Labor Day?
