Halloween Safety
When celebrating Halloween - like any other holiday, using common sense will keep you and your family safe and help you to have a great time.  As you've seen above, we here at Skeleton Foundry are pretty passionate about dispelling the "tainted candy" myth.  This one has been around for decades and has bugged us since we were kids.  We've all heard the stories about "that kid on the other side of town" that got rushed to the hospital because he bit into an apple with a razor blade in it, or a piece of candy that hand a needle in it, or the piece of candy that was laced with poison or drugs.  It's just not true!  Don't fall victim to the paranoia.  Teach your kids some common sense safety tips and they'll have a great time - and you will too!
