How To Survive Halloween (Even If You’re Staying Home)

how to survive halloween

Believe it or not, it’s important to know how to survive Halloween.

On this holiday, children and adults nationwide are going to engage in activities that could put them in mortal danger.

You may think we’re exaggerating. But according to State Farm insurance, Halloween is the most dangerous day for adults and children.

That’s because with the drinking and partying from teenagers/college kids, absent-minded parents not keeping an eye on their children, and attackers taking advantage of the darkness, car accidents, kidnappings, hit-and-runs, and burglaries tend to increase tremendously on this holiday.

And the scariest part is how you can be doing everything right, taking care of yourself and your kids, but still suffering the mistakes of others.

Not to mention, you’ll still need to know this information, even if you plan on staying home this Halloween.

Our job here at Concerned Patriot is to help prepare you for anything. That’s why we took our top tips for surviving Halloween and put them in this article

These tips are great for party-goers, trick-or-treaters, and even for those of you who don’t venture outside of the house.

These tips don’t require you to buy anything. But when you use them, you’re bound to stay much safer on All Hallow’s Eve.

How To Survive Halloween (Even If You’re Staying Home)

Survival Tips For Trick-Or-Treaters

Before you get all hopped up on candy, make sure your costume isn’t going to work against you this evening. For instance, make sure it’s made from flame-resistant material. Too many instances have happened where kids’ costumes brush up against a jack-o-lantern or open flame and their costume bursts into flames.

Make sure your costume also allows you to be easily seen at night. If it’s dark in color, attach reflective tape to the front, back, and sides. This will help you be easily seen by passersby and cars when you cross the street.

If wearing makeup, make sure it’s non-toxic. Also, be sure to have a flashlight or glow-stick with you so that you’re easy to see.

Side Note: If you want to see the perfect costume for Halloween that bypasses all these issues, check out the glowstick man costume.

Finally, make sure you can easily see through your mask (if you have one), and make sure you can easily walk, run, and jump in your costume without tripping over it or the material getting in your way. Avoid swords and other sharp objects that can cause damage to yourself and others.

Survival Tips For The Families Staying Home

Unfortunately, just because you’re staying home this Halloween doesn’t mean you’re exempt from danger. For instance, burglars and robbers choose this time of year to sneak into your home.

However, there’s another danger you’re facing on Halloween: Premise Liability Laws. This entails that, as the property/land owner, you are responsible for certain injuries that people can obtain while on your property. Therefore, it is your responsibility to make sure the kids trick-or-treating at your home have as safe a Halloween as possible.

Here are some helpful tips to help you ensure this is a safe and happy Halloween for everyone:

  • Make sure your walkway, lawn, and steps are secure and free of tripping hazards (like deep cracks or holes). Make sure people can’t slip and fall on them (important for snowy/icy conditions).
  • Keep the porch and house well-lit. This will signal to both trick-or-treaters and potential burglars that you’re home.
  • Have a self-defense item at the house just in case anyone tries to break into the home (unlikely if your lights are on, but you never know).
  • Keep music, TV noises, etc. low enough so you can hear what’s going on outside and throughout the house.
  • Keep candles inside and outside contained, and in an area where they can’t brush up against fabric.
  • Store all jack-o-lanterns away from the doorstep to remove the risk of a fire hazard when children come to the door.
  • Check your inside/outside lights for broken sockets, loose connections, and bare/frayed wiring. Discard these and replace them.
  • Keep in mind some families walk their dogs while trick-or-treating. Keep your pets in another room or in a crate to prevent them escaping and/or getting in a fight with other animals.
Survival Tips For Drivers

Here’s a scary statistic from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: over half of all car accidents on Halloween are because of alcohol consumption.

Here’s an even scarier one: as pedestrians, kids are 136% more likely to face injury or death between the hours of 3pm – 9pm on Halloween night (versus any other day).

As a driver, you have an immense responsibility to keep yourself and all trick-or-treaters around your vehicle safe. Follow these tips to give yourself the best chance at having a happy and safe Halloween:

  • Don’t drive intoxicated. Period.
  • If you’re planning on drinking, bring a sober designated driver along with you. Better safe than sorry.
  • Always buckle your seatbelt. Always.
  • If you’re drunk and don’t have a designated driver, call a friend or family member, call a cab, or take a bus. Do not drive.
  • Be on high-alert when driving. Trick-or-treaters and their families are likely to be everywhere, and they often wear dark clothing.
  • Drive slower than normal, and check twice before going through stoplights, stop signs, and pedestrian walkways.
  • Drive extra slowly through residential areas. Trick-or-treaters often run across the streets, and are typically unaware of their surroundings. Take extra caution.
  • Triple-check behind you and around you before backing out of your parking spot or driveway. It’s easy to miss small children walking by if you’re not careful.
  • Keep your headlights on at all times (even in the daylight). This is proven to increase your visibility – and you’ll need all the help you can get.
  • Make sure all car windows are clean and easy to see through.

By learning how to survive Halloween, we can each do our part to make this the best holiday yet. Prepare Now with these survival tips so you can Survive Later!


Biden Commissions a Poll… on Harris in 2024!


The Biden-Harris Campaign has reportedly commissioned an internal poll to gauge how Vice President Kamala Harris would perform as the Democratic nominee against former President Donald Trump. This development was reported by The New York Times on Thursday, citing three anonymous sources who are informed about the matter. The move comes as discussions within the Democratic Party intensify regarding the possibility of replacing President Joe Biden at the top of the ticket, following his disastrous debate performance that has sent shockwaves through the party.

The New York Times report notes that the campaign has not specified why the survey is being conducted or what the campaign plans to do with the results. This appears to be the first Trump versus Harris poll commissioned by the campaign since the debate. It is also unclear which outfit is conducting the survey.

Campaign Manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez and Campaign Chair Jennifer O’Malley Dillon attempted to reassure staff in an internal memo, emphasizing that Biden remains the most viable candidate and that he has a path to victory. They argued that hypothetical polling of alternative nominees is unreliable and that Biden is the only Democratic candidate for whom the negative media environment is already accounted for.

Despite these reassurances, recent polls and internal discussions suggest growing doubts about Biden’s candidacy. A poll from Emerson College Polling published Tuesday showed Trump with a larger lead over Harris than over Biden, indicating that Trump led Biden by three points and Harris by six in hypothetical two-way races.

Adding to the turmoil, some of Biden’s close allies are reportedly devising strategies to convince him to end his candidacy. NBC News reported that several sources within Biden’s circle say his bid for the White House is a lost cause. One Biden campaign official stated, “He needs to drop out. He will never recover from this.”

The commissioning of this internal poll is a stark admission of President Joe Biden’s deteriorating mental state. This unprecedented move highlights the growing concerns within the Democratic Party about Biden’s cognitive decline and raises serious questions about his ability to continue leading the nation.

The fact that the Biden-Harris campaign is even considering Harris as a potential nominee underscores the gravity of Biden’s cognitive issues. The campaign’s decision to assess Harris’s viability as a replacement candidate against Trump is a clear indication that they are grappling with the reality of Biden’s declining mental faculties.

Despite attempts by campaign officials to reassure staff, the frequency and gravity of Biden’s errors are alarming. The Emerson College Polling results, showing Trump with a larger lead over Harris than over Biden, further complicate the narrative and suggest that switching candidates may not solve the Democrats’ problems.

Reports from The New York Times and NBC News indicate that some of Biden’s close allies are devising strategies to convince him to end his candidacy. This growing consensus among Biden’s supporters that his bid for re-election is untenable underscores the urgent need for action. One Biden campaign official bluntly told NBC News, “He needs to drop out. He will never recover from this.”

The implications of President Biden’s cognitive decline are profound and far-reaching. The President of the United States must be someone who can lead with clarity, decisiveness, and strength. Biden’s frequent gaffes and apparent confusion raise serious doubts about his ability to fulfill these responsibilities effectively.

The American people deserve a leader who is mentally fit to navigate the complexities of the presidency. Biden’s continued candidacy, in light of overwhelming evidence of cognitive decline, is not just a political issue; it is a national crisis. The Democratic Party must confront this reality and take decisive action to ensure that the country is led by someone capable of meeting the demands of the office.

The coming months will be critical for both President Biden and the Democratic Party. As calls for Biden to step aside grow louder, the party must consider the broader implications for the country. The focus must shift to ensuring that the next leader is not only politically viable but also mentally fit to lead. The stakes are too high to ignore the glaring signs of cognitive decline in the current President.

Quadruple Board Certified Doctor: Biden Has Parkinson’s, Brain Degeneration


In a revealing interview with NBC News, a respected quadruple board-certified neurologist from New York City, Dr. Tom Pitts, unequivocally stated that President Joe Biden “definitely” has Parkinson’s disease and brain degeneration.

Dr. Pitts spoke with NBC News’ Tom Llamas, who queried, “Given what you’ve observed from the president over the last two years, his debate performances, recent interviews, his speech patterns, and gait, do you see any red flags as a medical professional?”

“Oh yeah, I see him 20 times a day in clinic,” Pitts replied, highlighting how typical Biden’s symptoms were among his patients. “He exhibits classic features of neurodegeneration: word-finding difficulties—this isn’t merely ‘I couldn’t find the right word,’ it’s from degeneration of the word retrieval area.”

Llamas pointed out Biden’s history with stuttering, questioning if it could be related. Pitts firmly responded, “No, this is not a stuttering issue or speech discrepancy,” elaborating further, “Plus, the rigidity, monotone voice…”

Dr. Pitts continued, “When he turns, it’s an end-block turning; it’s not a swift motion. That’s a hallmark of Parkinson’s: rigidity and bradykinesia, slow movement. He has that hallmark, especially with the low voice attributed to a cold; hypophonia, a small monotone voice over time is a hallmark of Parkinsonism. I could have diagnosed him from across the mall.”

Describing Biden’s gait, Pitts noted, “Shuffling gait, we call that ‘little steps.’ Loss of arm swing due to rigidity; typically, we walk with a nice cadence, but he doesn’t swing his arms. End-block turning means he pivots around his foot. If you called out, ‘Hey, President Biden,’ he wouldn’t swiftly turn to look behind him.”

When Llamas suggested Parkinson’s is challenging to diagnose, Pitts disagreed, “It’s one of the easier movement disorders to diagnose. I’m a Democrat… This isn’t a difficult case. Once you start manifesting the hallmark motor symptoms—slow movement, rigidity, masked facies, hypophonia—if a med student didn’t recognize Parkinson’s on a test, they’d fail.”

Bluntly, Pitts concluded, “His motor symptoms are degenerating. He has Parkinsonisms. That is a fact. He has brain degeneration. Show me the MRI. Prove he doesn’t. Put your money where your mouth is. He definitely has it.”

For conservatives concerned about the nation’s leadership, these assertions raise serious questions about President Biden’s cognitive fitness to serve in the highest office.

Trump and His Allies Move to Destroy Biden Campaign


( – Politico revealed on Monday that a pro-Trump super PAC receiving significant funding from billionaire Miriam Adelson is preparing to launch a $61 million advertising campaign this month to deal a fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s struggling campaign.

A source informed Politico that a revitalized and redesigned Preserve America will run advertisements this month as the Summer Olympics get underway in Paris.

The story stated that the ads would run in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In May, it was revealed that Adelson intended to contribute significantly to Preserve America, a group established amid President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.

Although it is currently uncertain how much the super PAC will rely on Adelson’s contributions, sources informed Politico in May that she intends to raise her 2020 donation of $90 million.

Her and her late husband’s contributions accounted for 85% of Preserve America’s funding. Sheldon Adelson, the late billionaire who owned casinos, passed away on January 11, 2021.

Adelson’s wife, who now controls their contributions, plans to increase their super PAC funding.

Preserve America’s goal is to capitalize on the internal Democratic squabbling that followed the June 27 presidential debate. Several Democrats have demanded that Biden resign as his polling numbers have dropped.

Adelson and her son-in-law are Las Vegas Sands’s principal shareholders and jointly own most of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, she is worth $33.3 billion.
