Halloween seems like fun and games until we look at the facts. According to bestplace.net twice as many deaths occur on Halloween night than any other day of the year including New Years, Fourth of July or any other holiday. It is most fatal to young kids between the ages of 12-15. The study that was done was recorded from 1990-2010. So it has multiple Halloweens to back up its evidence. There is even a dealist hour for Halloween. Between the hours of 6:00-7:00 pm the most deaths occur. The deaths that were studied were child pedestrian accidents. My question to you all is, should we allow children to go out on the street running from door to door when they're twice as more likely to die? There are more variables than cars hitting kids but kidnappimg and murders, what other variables do you think would contribute to the deadliest day?
I think he should keep Halloween as is even if it is twice as more likely for death. It's somewhat magical for little kids, and something everyone should have the chance to enjoy. The risk factor is there even if we never noticed because we haven't been victims, but someone we know might be this time tomorrow night.
