    Tips for trick-or-treating
    It’s hard getting candy nowadays with the current economic situation, and with people growing grouchier. But, there are still ways you can get your fill of candy on Halloween night:

    1.Appearance- Customs don’t have to be overly weird, but they still need to attract enough attention to get candy and be memorable. You don’t have to go all out like Lady Gaga did during the Video Music Awards, but dressing along the lines of a cookie or a banana would work great. You also might want to look as young as possible. Think about it, would you rather give more candy out to a high school junior or a 4th grader? If you really like candy, bring an extra custom, so when you’re done first time round, you can change and start over again. As well as having a memorable custom, make sure it’s light and flexible, so you’re able to move quickly as you receive your candy.

    2.Plan- Before you start the night, plan it out. Make sure you know what side of the neighborhood you should start with. Also make sure you start early, but not too early, you wouldn’t want to be the only person asking for candy at 10am. A plan would also consist of skipping houses you know would only give out toothpaste. Plan on visiting streets not many people go on, because they might have a lot of candy. Don’t stay up too late, but if you want, you could wait till midnight and get the leftover candy from the houses. To stay safe, you should trick-or-treat with friends, but not with too many people. The less people the better, because the less people there are, the faster you can move and the more candy you can receive.

    3.Trade Candy- If you know one of your friends don’t like a “Twix” offer to trade with them. The more people that come along, the more candy you can trade. You can trade two for one, one for two, as long as your friend is content with the candy they receive.

    4.Have fun- Halloween shouldn’t just be focused on the candy, don’t limit yourself and if you really don’t care much for candy, you can drop by houses that feature Halloween parties, haunted houses, and other attractions. They are usually pretty crowded, but they are worth it and are usually free. If they spent months making attractions, why not drop by and have a good time?

    Halloween is a great time for people of all ages, but the most important tip is staying safe. Don’t eat any candy that’s unwrapped or looks suspicious. Always go with a group of people and watch out for cars. If you know for a fact that the owner of a house is unfriendly, don’t risk it. Make sure you don’t go to houses with the lights off, because sometimes their not home or they don’t have candy. But besides that, follow the above tips, and have a great Halloween![center]

    Tips for trick-or-treating
    It’s hard getting candy these days with the current economic situation, and as the economy grows worse, people grow grouchier. But, there are still ways you can get your fill of candy on Halloween night. Some are creative ways, while others are logical and thought out. Whatever you try, just make sure it works before you try it, or you might just be making yourself look foolish ion front of other people.

    1. Appearance- Costumes don’t have to be overly odd, but they still need to attract enough attention to get candy and be memorable. You don’t have to go all out like Lady Gaga did during the Video Music Awards, but dressing along the lines of a cookie or a banana would work well. You also might also want to look as young as possible. Think about it? Would you rather give more candy out to a tall hairy high school junior or a cute little fourth grader? If you really like candy, bring an extra costume, so when you’re done first time round, you can change and start over again. As well as having a memorable costume, make sure it’s light and flexible, so you’re able to move quickly as you receive your candy.

    2. Plan Ahead- Before you start the night, plan it out. Make sure you know which side of the neighborhood you should start with. Also make sure you start early, but not too early; you wouldn’t want to be the only person asking for candy at 10:00 a.m.. A plan would also consist of skipping houses you know would only give out toothpaste. Plan on visiting streets not many people go on, because they might have a lot of candy. Don’t stay up too late, but if you want, you could wait until midnight and get the leftover candy from the houses. To stay safe, you should trick-or-treat with friends, but not with too many people. The fewer people that you go with, the faster you will be able to move to the next house.

    3. Trade candy- If you know one of your friends doesn't like a Twix, offer to trade with them. If you do choose to come with a lot of people, the more candy you can trade. You can trade two for one or one for two, but just don’t be unfair to your friend. You wouldn’t want to trade them a Powerpuff Girl sticker for their whole basket of candy, unless they want to. As long as their content, it’s all good.

    4. Have fun- Halloween isn't just about the candy. Don’t limit yourself to candy and if you really don’t care much for candy, you can drop by houses that feature Halloween parties, haunted houses, and other attractions. If you do drop by haunted houses, a fun game to play is to scare the monsters that are trying to scare you. They are usually pretty crowded, but they are worth it and are usually free. If the creators of the attractions spent months making the attractions, why not drop by and have a good time?


    Halloween is a great time for people of all ages, but the most important tip is staying safe. Don’t eat any candy that’s unwrapped or looks suspicious, such as candy that has skull and crossbones on it. Always go with a group of people and watch out for cars. If you know for a fact that the owner of a house is unfriendly, don’t risk it. Make sure you don’t go to houses with the lights off, because sometimes their not home or they don’t have candy. But besides that, follow the above tips, and have a great Halloween.
