Halloween is a week away. Each year we fill pumpkin bags with leaves and spreading them out on the roof of the garage. It won’t be long before we are, like many of you carving real pumpkins. My partner Joe Crumley’s family always made it an art form as his kids grew up.
We all still need to keep an eye out for safety.
– Keep knives away from children
– when using candles:
- Don’t leave them unattended.
- Be thorough in your leaf removal efforts, so there’ll be less around to catch fire.
- Don’t leave them on your deck, patio or porch during trick or treat, as kids’ costumes may be flammable.
– Think about using glow sticks from party supply stores instead.
– Rotting pumpkins can make slipping hazards. So make sure the porch is safe for visitors.
– While you’re at it: remove hoses and other tripping hazards that treat seekers could miss in the dark
It’s a great time. I remember driving from Northern Minnesota during a trial to be with my oldest son for his first night out. this one will be his eleventh. So have fun and be safe.
