Here are a few more common-sense tips:

Have a parent or guardian with you. Make sure that you only trick-or-treat at the houses of people you know. If it is cold when it is still light, it will be really cold later. Carry a sweatshirt. Finally, I forgot the most important tip of all: Don't eat too much candy, or you'll get a stomachache. Happy Halloween!
