As we fondly reminisce Halloweens passed, we get to enjoy watching them form memories of their own. While these times are sure to be cherished, its important that we always remember to practice safety first.

While I hate to cast a shadow on my favorite holiday, I feel compelled to share the following in the name of safety. According to the National Safety Council, children are more than twice as likely to be struck and killed by a vehicle on Halloween than any other day of the year. Scary, right? If numbers and stats are your thing, visit the National Safety Council to learn more. The full article can be found here.

Statistics aside, we want to help ensure adults and children have a safe holiday. For safety tips on costumes, trick-or-treating, candy allergies, etc. we recommend giving Halloween Safety Tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics a read. You might be surprised by the number of safety tips you never considered.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
