Halloween is arguably the most wonderful time of the year for horror fans, candy lovers, and children. There’s nothing quite as fulfilling in life as binge-watching a countless number of horror films, munching on a Tootsie Roll, or going Trick ‘r Treating with your friends. However, as fun as all of this sounds, there are dangerously unpleasant things afoot. Here are five things to avoid on Halloween night!


Things to avoid on HalloweenUnless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of months, it’s no secret that evil clowns are collecting our fear one town at a time. While some clowns seem pleasant enough (Pennywise seemed nice on the surface, but look how that turned out for G-G-Georgie), it’s too risky a time for you to trust them.

Things to avoid on HalloweenHalloween night is meant to be a pleasant evening in which you can eat all of the delicious candy your heart desires, which is why Necco Wafers are absolutely one of the things to avoid on Halloween.
