Trick or Treat EtiquetteJules Hirst
Halloween is an evening when a child can dress up and be whoever they want, but no matter who your child wants to be don’t forget to take your trick or treat etiquette with you. Here is a list of Do’s and Don’ts to remember:
If you are planning on giving out candy do leave your porch light on. Leaving the light on signifies that you are in the trick-or-treat business.
Giving out fruit, box of raisins or homemade treats, although done with the best intentions, is not a good idea. Parents are more than likely to throw away anything that is handmade and/or open, plus kids are there for candy.
Trick or Treaters:
Only go to the homes with the porch light on. Knock or ring the doorbell once and stand back.
Do say trick or treat. Unless your costume is deer in the headlights, don’t stand there with your bag open with a blank stare.
Only take one to two pieces of candy and remember to say “thank you” and never say “I don’t like that”.
Stay on the sidewalk and off the grass and flowerbeds.
