One of our special treats at the Rockdale News is to celebrate this tradition with decorations and special treats (and tricks!) for our staff.
This Monday night is the time for our local trick-or-treaters to hit the roads in Olde Town to load up on their special goodies given by kind homeowners.
We don't believe it hurts to allow our children to participate in tradition and possibly indulge with sweet treats once a year, but everyone needs to be careful. We encourage you to follow some of these suggestions:
Older children should take friends when trick-or-treating.
Younger children should have parents with them.
Children and adults should wear reflective clothing.
Check any goodies received before the youngsters enjoy it.
Stay safe, and we want to wish all our readers a happy Halloween.
