WLOX Editorial: Staying safe is the best Halloween treat of all

This weekend in neighborhoods across America, children will put on costumes and hit the streets door to door announcing to home dwellers "trick or treat."

For the little ones there are no real tricks; only treats. Some people estimate that one quarter of all candy sold annually in the U. S. is purchased at Halloween.

Many neighborhoods in south Mississippi turn the day into a party for children and adults. So many more pedestrians will take to the streets in their festive costumes. Whether you participate or not, we urge everyone to be extremely careful on the roads. Returning back home safely will be the best treat of all.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
