Remove any kind of materials that can likely trip anyone those heading up to your house. Kids usually run up to porches so make sure that the path leading to your door is free from any kind of obstruction and obstacles.

Don’t leave the pumpkin lantern glowing overnight. Avoid potential disaster by blowing out the candle inside your pumpkin lantern before going to bed. Although it’s really amazing to see pumpkin lanterns in the darkness of the night, it’s highly advisable to take the lights out to eliminate fire hazards. Same thing goes with glowing lights, don’t leave them on and attached to electrical outlets overnight.

It’s advisable to put them in a place with minimal disturbance. You can place them in the garage or at the basement where they can peacefully survive the Halloween night.

Watch out for ice. For people living in areas where it snows on Halloween, this is a must-do tip! Look out for ice build up at the pathway, driveway, and sidewalk. Remove the snow and make sure that path leading to your door is free from snow. You can also lay down some salt to prevent kids from sliding and falling while running onto your porch.
