Where to Stay Warm and Dry for Halloween
A few years ago my younger son wore a thick, furry bear costume for Halloween. He was the envy of our group, because he was the only warm trick-or-treater among us—the rest of us, more lightly clothed, kept our heads down against the cold wind and sleety rain.
In hindsight, indoor trick-or-treating would have been a wise choice that year.
It’s probably also a wise choice this year, with cold rain in the forecast for the trick-or-treating hours on Halloween.
If you’re wondering whether your child’s costume will be warm enough this year or whether the rain will wash away your hopes for a fun Halloween, consider some of the following choices as alternatives to traditional outdoor trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.
