To ensure a happy and secure Halloween, take into account the following suggestions.
Many of us begin to look forward to Halloween as fall sets in.
Unavoidably, a few exuberant ghosts and ghouls will rush to your door in a flurry. Get ready. Check your front path, driveway, and lawn in broad daylight for trip hazards such as exposed tree roots, concrete cracks, or missing pavers. Where possible, make repairs; if not, at the very least, block off access to dangerous locations. Keep electrical wires away from your walkways if you've decked out your front yard with decorations like animated figures and light-up pumpkins.
Illuminate the path
Make sure the entrance to your home is well-lit so trick-or-treaters can safely approach. For the sole purpose of accommodating guests on Halloween night, you do not need to build a whole system of year-round landscape lighting. From glow sticks to tea lights, there are many flimsy and inexpensive solutions for lighting. And while turning off your porch light can seem more in keeping with the eerie atmosphere of the evening, having a well-lighted path makes your home considerably safer and more welcoming
Avoid flammable decorations
Take care of your dog
Soon, a merry procession of princesses, superheroes, and ghouls will march to your home. Make a contribution by preparing the way by providing lighting and of course candy. Happy Halloween and stay safe out there!
