It's Halloween!Posted Monday, October 31, 2011, at 4:15 PM
It's Halloween! Goblins, witches, princesses and unicorns are everywhere!
I don't know why people love Halloween so much, but I'm guessing it's a once-a-year opportunity to step out of the confines of the roles we play every day and have some silly, outrageous fun!
Also, the candy is a pretty big draw at our house.
Trick-or-treating is still en vogue, but lots of folks are opting for other events like the local Treats Without Tricks at the community center, 4:30-7:30 p.m., for kids age 12 and younger; or trunk-or-treat events, or a family get-together instead. Less scary that way, for parents.
But if you're trick-or-treating this year, please stay safe.
Here's some tips provided by the Nevada Police Department
-Carry a flashlight to help improve visibility;
-Plan a route to take and share it with family members;
-Wear light-colored or reflective clothing;
-Only cross streets at crosswalks or street corners;
-Only visit homes where a porch light is on;
-Never go into any stranger's home;
-Immediately report any suspicious activity or treats to the police;
-Drivers should use extreme caution when traveling through a subdivision.
Exploring the obvious and the not so obvious in search of the oh, so elusive "something to do' that's all around us.
