The Decorah Area Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Decorah Police Department, announces Halloween trick-or-treating will take place on Wednesday, October 31 with suggested hours for trick-or-treating from 5–8 p.m.
While 5-8 p.m. are the encouraged hours for the night please be mindful of porch lights. Only visit homes with porch lights on at any point in the night. Alternatively, if you are not interested in greeting all the trick-or-treaters, keep your porch light off.
Readers Digest recently shared some Halloween Etiquette Rules:
If you don’t know what a costume is, don’t guess
Skip the gruesome decorations at the office
Use costumes to your advantage at work
Don’t assume everyone shares your sense of humor
Keep in mind that culture isn’t a costume
Remember that in this day and age, nothing is private
Headstone decorations shouldn’t touch a nerve
Teach your kids a lesson
Let kids talk about their costumes
Keep it quiet
Be part of your teen’s costume planning
Skip the haunted house
Be mindful of allergies
Make sure everyone is invited
The DPD and DACC remind everyone to keep an eye out for trick-or-treaters to ensure a safe and happy Halloween.
Have fun and be safe!
