Stay safe this spooky holiday
Halloween’s roots can be traced to the Celtic New Year of ancient Europe. Mostly ignored by early Protestant Americans, the holiday made its way into American culture and was celebrated as a secular occasion by the 20th century. Today, children and adults alike dress up to revel in the spirit of All Hallows’ Eve by taking a binge in sugary sweets and mostly harmless mischief.
Although good, clean fun is encouraged during this time of year, it is also wise to acknowledge safety concerns while little ghosts, goblins, witches and princesses make their rounds through neighborhoods seeking candy from residents.
