Halloween: Fact, Fiction, and Fun!
To get you and your family safely in the Halloween spirit
Legends and Folklore
Were you one of those kids with parents who searched your Halloween candy for staples and razor blades before you were allowed to dig into your hard-earned stash? Do you do the same thing with your children? Have you been paralyzed with fear upon reading a terrifying chain-email describing the abduction of a child from a well-known discount store; her little head shaven in the bathroom to disguise her, as she’s spirited out of the store, only to be rescued by vigilant security guards? It’s enough to make you pass up the adorable costumes, skip the candy aisle, turn off your porch light, and forget Halloween altogether!
Before you deadbolt the door, take a breath and rest assured that you’ve been the victim of some of the dozens of urban legends floating around playgrounds, schoolyards, and now the Internet, for decades. The vast majority of these legends are untrue, and you’ll be pleased to learn that Halloween can be a safe, exciting, and fun day for the entire family.
