There are several ways to improve on Halloween safety. Each has its importance, and must be considered.
Halloween safety is important, since younger children often dart running with little concern for their surroundings. It important to have your home, at least outdoors, well lighted so the children can see any tripping hazards. But, there is also a desire to use lighting that is not in conflict with the spooky decorations. It is a balance that must be maintained, but it is an important balance.
A second side of Halloween safety is to have the children themselves easily seen, even though the costume may be dark. They must be easily seen by oncoming traffic. Handheld lights that are Halloween themed can help here, and it is an easy thing to add. But, is the lights are not directional they can be seen from many angles, a fact often overlooked.
Finally, can a child trust the candy from a trick or treat venture? If the child stays in an area where the neighbors are well known there is usually no problem, provided you really know the neighbors well. But, if not, which piece of candy came from which house can be a problem? So, the way to help this issue is to substitute for the candy. But what?
Hence, Halloween safety has many aspects, and it is wise to ignore none of them.
