Tomorrow is Halloween so today I am going to feature some SPOOKtacular hints for the candy eating holiday.

Hint 1: Planning on dressing up your pet for all the Halloween fun?
Here's a few tips to keep in mind:
1. Make sure the costume fits your pet properly and it is comfortable for them.
2. Make sure the costume doesn't have any pieces that can be easily chewed off.

If some of the more adventurous kiddos can’t wait to check out the neighbor’s spooky haunted house display, but one of the children is a bit more reticent, make sure someone agrees to stay with him or her, at a designated place, before everyone takes off.
