Halloween Lights Add Safety
Halloween Safety Starts with Lights
Many of us are visited by small children on Halloween. In my neighborhood it can be as many as one hundred. I am located on the first street with houses adjacent to several blocks of apartments, and trick or treat is not well suited for apartments, so the children end up walking to my street. This is great. We enjoy Halloween.
Unfortunately, children get excited and run. If it is too dark outside they can trip ovcer the smallest of things. So, it is important to have a well lit celebration.
every year new lights appear, so there re those that are going to really make your yard or party look unique. Just search for them.

Lights Lining Walks
People place bags, or pumpkins, along walks with lights within. Some use candles, others use light bulbs. In either case care must be taken not to have a fire. Remember, some children have flowing parts of their costumes, and this can become a hazard. And, even light bulbs can get hot enough to ignite paper or melt plastic, especially when the heat is contained.

LEDs Work Best
LEDs are cool, and should be the safer option. They use very little electricity, so heating is not really a problem. However, if they are used to light other objects, perhaps several at a time in a pumpkin, the wire can become a tripping hazard. Make certain all electrical cords are out of the way and offer as little danger as possible.
And, LEDs use very little energy, making them environmentally good choices.
Lighting the House
One or several scary items placed on the front of the house add to the atmosphere, and also add to the lighting of any areas that might be too dark otherwise. Getting light to the walk, and lawn since children will stray, does not have to ruin your Halloween decorations.
Have a Party
Get extra usage out of your Halloween decorations by having a party. You and your guests can enjoy the same decorations. As guests come to the party, greet them with your outdoor display, which will also be the last thing they see as they drive away. His will provide a great first impression, and a lasting image. Have the party that others will rave about with well chosen lights.
