Have a Nightmare-Free Halloween

Halloween. Oh, the memories.

Your Mom always had your costume on-point. Your Dad was a trick-or-treating pro. The night was sugar-filled perfection, every time.

Now you’re planning a Halloween of your own and realizing that Mom and Dad made “perfection” look a little too easy. Maybe you were too young to remember the fumbles, OR maybe your parents had some tricks up their sleeves.

Either way, you deserve a few tricks of your own. Check out some convenient tid-bits below to get you through the madness this Halloween, and straight to the magic.
