At what age should you stop trick-or-treating?

That's a tough question. It probably stops being cute and starts feeling a little inappropriate somewhere around 13-14, I'd say.

When did Halloween start?

Halloween started in Ireland about 2,000 years ago with a group of people called the Celtics. They believed in a god called Samhain who was the god of dead and darkness. October 31st was considered the end of the year and as a result they threw a large celebration, which was known as Samhain. This celebration of the autumn harvest and the Celtic new year, when they believed spirits could come back and visit with living relatives.

Do they celebrate Halloween in Lithuania?

Not exactly. Lithuanians have an All Saint's Day called "Vėlinės" on November 1st, which is a day when lithuanians mourn people that have passed away.

What should you know about child safety on Halloween?

A few important things to know about child safety on Halloween are:

  • Don't let them eat any candy or food that isn't already wrapped by a company, appears unwrapped, or was not wrapped at all eg. candy apples, soft pretzels, etc.
  • If your child is allergic to anything, carefully read the labels on each piece of candy that you are unfamiliar with.
  • Don't let your children go trick-or-treating after your town's curfew.
  • Always carry a flashlight. You don't want your kids running off in the dark.
  • Don't let them out trick-or-treating without a responsible older person to watch them.
  • Be careful when crossing streets or intersections.
  • Be sure their costume has a glow stick, bright color, reflective tape, or other means of allowing them to be seen by drivers.
  • Watch for loose animals, such as dogs, and avoid them.
  • Don't go to houses that do not look welcoming.
  • Never enter a house of someone you do not know very well.
  • If possible, carry a cell phone, two way radio, or other means of communication.
  • The larger your group, the better.

What does the color black represent at Halloween?

The color black could represent the night or darkness, where it is harder to see and there isn't any light around to show who you are (everyone is in costume and walking around in the dark). If you want to take a horror-movie perspective, it could also represent evil, or fantasy creatures that typically roam the night like vampires, werewolves, or witches.
