(KYMA, KECY/CNN) - Halloween is usually full of fun and adventure -- and candy -- making it a favorite holiday for many.
Cloee Cooper, a research analyst in Boston, remembers it that way. "You get to dress up as someone else, walk all over town, attend haunted house parties and celebrations at school," she said.
But Cooper says that when she was growing up in Mount Shasta, California, her parents had a few rules: "Don't go inside a person's house unless you know them. Don't take unwrapped candies, and I had to be back home by a certain time."
Before you hit the sidewalks on Halloween, make sure that your family gets the most out of the day by playing it safe.
