Ah Halloween: it's the season of sugar rushes, repurposed white sheets, and humiliated pumpkins. Aside from all the fun things there are to do to get ready for the spookiest night of the year, it's a good idea to take quick stock of your home's porch and walkway areas.
If you're expecting little goblins and Bob-the-Builders to arrive at your door come the evening of the 31st, you'd better be ready to receive them in safety, and style. If you've ever been a kid, you remember how excited you got at Halloween, and having to scramble around in a floor length sheet? Add to the mix that you were probably already a little bit clumsy, and then add large amounts of sugar... forget about it...it was a small miracle I managed to get anywhere on Halloween as a kid.

Remember also that lighting is crucial to make your home's exterior inviting and safe. (It's also a good way to improve curb appeal so you can enjoy the benefits long after the toilet paper has been removed from your trees.) Line your walk and porch in solar powered garden lights, and you'll be ready to warmly welcome family and friends for all the coming holidays.
