Don’t forget your manners on halloween

Is there such a thing as Halloween etiquette? – Anonymous

Interestingly enough, yes there absolutely is good Halloween etiquette. Below are six simple guidelines to help you have a fun and great Halloween season.

  • 1. Never cross through the flowerbeds going from house to house. Always walk up the driveway or walkway.
  • 2. Repeatedly ringing the doorbell is rude and unnecessary. When you arrive at the door, ring the doorbell once and wait for the door to be answered.
  • 3. When answering the door, don’t over-scare trick-or-treating toddlers.
  • 4. Don’t be greedy. If you’re offered a large bowl of candy, take a little bit, not a huge handful, and always say thank you!
  • 5. If the party invitation says “wear a costume,” you are required to wear a costume.
  • 6. The hours for trick-or-treating are dusk to 9-ish and then it really needs to come to an end.
