Trick or treating is not looting

Angela on the Llewellyn blog just posted a link to the CDC Safe Halloween list.

The very first item (drumroll please)---

Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.

Yes, that is right---the very first tip is that you are not supposed to be carrying lethal weapons around while treat or treating. Is it just me that wonders why this tip makes the top of the list?

Somehow I can just imagine some kid whacking some other kid with their dad's (or mom's) Highlander sword. Hey, it would happen in my family.

Please remember that trick or treating is not looting.

Viking kitty is here to pillage your village.
