Every October, children look forward to Halloween night — the time when they get to dress up as their favorite characters, knock on neighbors’ doors and ask the age-old question:
“Trick or Treat?”
Kids usually get what they want — a bag or a bucket full of sweets! This joy can quickly sour, however, if parents and their children have not made the necessary preparations for everyone to have a safe night.
This brochure is designed to help you, and your child, keep trick-or-treat safety in mind during Halloween. Please take the time to
read the Halloween story, which incorporates safety tips, with your child. Additional safety tips and reminders are also on the back of the brochure.
Together, we can make Halloween a fun and safe night for everyone.
The American Legion has always been concerned for the welfare of our nation’s youth. Therefore, as long as Halloween activities are sponsored and promoted in our communities, Legionnaires believe that children and parents should know how to observe the holiday as safely as possible. Such concern should not be interpreted as an endorsement or approval of Halloween as an annual event.
