Most couples come across the child in themselves every year when Halloween comes about. They get into the spirit of our haunting season with as much gusto as our little ones.

Fundamental custom of Halloween is “Trick or Treat”, a custom practiced by the youngsters throughout Halloween. Deal with It Halloween is for the Kids, Parents and Grandparents.

They go from home to home usually in their own neighbour hood with this famous question, “Trick or treat?”.

This tradition originated in England, All Saints Day in which poor people pies offered in exchange for promises that they would pray for the souls of the dead family.

Custom greeting is like our “Trick or does not give us”, except that in this case, if the homeowner doesn’t give anything at all, the kids do various tricks.

 

The Haunted House: Halloween is generally known as a scary exciting time. So what would Halloween be without having a haunted house, yard or front entrance.

Trick or Treating Tips For Parents

Halloween, the holiday that delights children of all ages with its roots in keeping away the souls of the dead, is the night before All Saints’ Day, a holiday in the Christian tradition.

Enthusiastically and energetically celebrated in the United States and Canada, it is a holiday that many new immigrants find delightful as well. Let’s consider how to fully embrace and celebrate the holiday in a safe and fun way with your children.

Halloween offers a fun time for parents to go out with their children as they trick-or-treat, ringing doorbells and eagerly accepting treats from neighbors. It’s a nice opportunity to get some fresh air and exercise while meeting others in your building or neighborhood. If your neighborhood doesn’t feel safe, many shopping malls offer the experience, or you could join a friend in a different neighborhood.

Costumes are a great way for children to express their creativity and try on new identities, but they should be safe as well. Be sure your child can see well out of any mask or hood. Room underneath for warm clothes is important, particularly in our chilly fall climate. Sturdy shoes and sure footwear keep little goblins on their feet the whole evening without tripping or falling.

Make sure your children can be seen clearly and easily. Incorporate some reflective paint or tape into the costume design so your child will be visible to others on the road.

Have them carry a flashlight or wear a headlight; clipping a flashing bicycle light to costumes also enhances visibility.

Just like it’s a safe idea to teach children to ask before they pet a strange dog, they should learn to ask before they eat a new treat. This gives parents an opportunity to take a quick look at what they’ve been given. Homemade treats and unwrapped goodies should be set aside for very careful scrutiny at home unless you are certain they’ve come from a trusted friend.

“Everything in moderation” is great advice for all, and children can practice on Halloween. It’s helpful and healthy for children to learn to eat a few treats and save the rest for later. It also offers children a chance to learn to be generous and share their goodies with family or friends.

Costumes for Trick or Treating

It is very important to be mindful of life-threatening food allergies, as anywhere from 5 to 7.5 percent of children suffer from one. This means that at least one or two children in a school classroom will have to be exceptionally careful about what they eat. Follow their parents’ lead. The parent of a child with food allergies is the expert and will have thought ahead about how to handle an event such as a Halloween party.

For some of those children, the safest decision is to fore go trick-or-treating; a special trip to a haunted house or other fun activity can substitute. Other children may be able to participate but need all treats especially carefully screened by parents before trying anything. Some savvy parents who want their children to experience the fun of going out in costume carry along their own allergen-free treats to put in their kids’ bags at each house. Having a party at home and asking friends to bring particular allergen-free treats is another way to enjoy the holiday safely.

Halloween is a holiday made for children, with all the essential ingredients: the ability to pretend and dress up, time outdoors with family and friends, and some goodies, if possible.

Enjoy the evening with your children and keep your little ghosts safe at the same time.
