Halloween only comes around once a year, putting a ghoulish amount of pressure on your spooky shoulders to make sure it really counts. Here are some simple dos and don’ts that you can follow to ensure a Halloween hall of fame performance.
Do: Have a backup costume
No one wants to see a Tarzan costume with an unfortunate tear in it, so have a backup option ready to go, even if that backup option is just a toilet-paper mummy.
Don’t: Combine costumes
Don’t get lazy and try to repurpose one of your old costumes. Vampire Michael Jordan just doesn’t need to see the light of day.
Do: Scope out the best candy
It’s all right to be picky at this all-you-can-eat candy buffet, just do your best not to go overboard.
Don’t: Turn candy down
What are you, a Rockefeller? Don’t turn down free candy. Those Smarties you dismiss now will look like gold as you are coming down from a Halloween sugar high.
However you decide to spend your Halloween, do remember to have fun and don’t forget to be safe.
