25 Oct Trick-or-treat Etiquette: How to Be Spooky & Sweet
It’s the time of year when the streets become filled with movie characters, ghosts, goblins and animals. Every child (and adult) gets to venture beyond the norm for a night. And most importantly, we all get to chow down on delicious candy. Getting spooky doesn’t mean you can be a savage though, so try to keep to these simple guidelines in mind while trick-or-treating.
Lights On or Off
It’s universally known that lights on mean you’ve got the goods and lights off means you don’t. If you want to be part of Halloween festivities, be sure to light accordingly.
If you’re going out with your children (or if you’re just feeling young at heart), remember that nobody likes a candy hog. Take a piece or two from the bowl, and move on! Save some for the other evening’s characters.
Pass Out the Compliments
Candy shouldn’t be the only thing collected on Halloween night. People put a lot of effort into their costume (especially the little ones!) so be sure to pass along some nice words about their creative garb. Even superheroes appreciate a compliment now and then!
Get the Whole Neighborhood Together
The more the merrier! Mizner Country Club makes it really easy to bring the neighborhood together during each holiday. For Halloween night, what’s better than a block party! Fun games, creative treats, and contests will all be part of the festivities so be sure to stop by costume-clad. And of course, if you prefer to keep it more low-key during the week, don’t forget about our Spooky Halloween Dinner, which is happening on October 28.
