Good manners & Trick-Or-Treat!

Very important for your children to know and do before and during they trick-or-treat?

To plan for this festive day, we’re establishing some general ground rules for those on the “receiving” end.

Children stay on the walkway to the front door. You don’t want to mow down your neighbors’ prize mums.

Ring the doorbell twice, if it is not response do not insist,  go to the next home.

Be careful with the homes that are dark, should not be approached. Perhaps they are either not at home but if they do not wish to participate in Halloween you need to respect their decision can be for religious believing.

Always carry a flashlight so cars can see you and you can see where you’re walking.

And parents can add reflective tape to costumes and candy containers.

Be courteous when someone answers the door, say “Trick-or-Treat” nicely.

Be sure to say, “Thank you” after receiving your treat. Only get one candy to be respectful with the homeowner and other children. They will be more children after you looking for candies too.

Never go into someone’s home. If anyone invites to go inside be polite but decline the invitation.

Only eat candy that is wrapped. Candy unwrapped can contains something that can damage your health.

Time to start Halloween is when it becomes dark outside and not past 9:00 p.m.

Don’t rifle through the candy to find your favorite treat.  Once again take one treat unless told otherwise.

Times for Trick-or-Treating

Usually, there is no set schedule for trick-or-treating in California and Arizona. Check with your city in case that it is a time scheduled this year.  Most trick-or-treaters will arrive at homes between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., but there is no hard rule about it. Notwithstanding the fact that it is Halloween, city curfews are still enforced.

If Halloween falls on a school night, it is usually a good idea to wrap things up by 8:30 p.m. or 9 p.m. at the absolute latest.
