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.
