Ways To Make A Safe Halloween

It's the time of the year for witches and goblins large and small, along with reminders that can keep Halloween safely scary.

Experts say kids should wear brightly colored costumes that are easier to see, or reflective material should be added to darker themes.

If the kids are wearing masks, parents are urged to make sure they don't hinder visibility and makeup should be of the nontoxic variety.

Other common sense advice includes making sure you or another adult is with the kids when they're out trick-or-treating.

Also, check the candy once they're home.

Since many adults like Halloween celebrations, experts remind party goers and hosts about the dangers of excessive drinking -- and driving home later.

    TO: I Love Jesus: What gave you the idea that Halloween is to "celebrate the devil's holiday"? Do you know where and when it originated or are you just assuming. I guess you also consider "The Day of The Dead" celebration in Mexico a holiday for the devil.
