Tips On Halloween Etiquette


Little ghouls and goblins should always remember to say "thank you" when trick-or-treating.

Topsail Island, NC - (NAPSA)-Every Halloween, ghosts, goblins, witches and warlocks fly around our neighborhoods. But before you send your little tricksters out for some Halloween fun, it may be a good idea to review some simple Halloween etiquette.

For instance, etiquette expert Peggy Post says to remember that ghoulish makeup and face paint are acceptable but to keep it age appropriate. Bustiers, heavy politically comical outfits and references to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" are not considered kid-friendly.

Consider these additional helpful trick-or-treating etiquette tips from Post, author of Emily Post's "Etiquette" and etiquette expert for

¥ Remind your little goblin not to be greedy-one piece of candy from each house is the general rule. Also, saying "thank you" is a must.

¥ If your neighborhood isn't so kid-friendly, head to one that is. But don't drop your kids off in an unknown neighborhood. Even if you think it's safe, you should at least know a member of the neighborhood.

¥ If you have really young ones, try trick-or-treating earlier, around 4:00 or 4:30 p.m. Your kids will be less exhausted and less likely to run into the really scary costumes and tricks of older kids.

¥ If a friend is taking your kids out and you're worried about how much she'll let them indulge in their candy bags, it's OK to talk to her about it. First, thank her for taking the kids, then ask her simply to keep an eye on how much they devour.

¥ Love Halloween or know someone that does? Celebrate the day by sending the 1-800-FLOWERS Halloween Treat, featuring fresh fall flowers arranged in a glass pumpkin jar. Visit for more details.
