The scariest stuff on Halloween is often what you’d least expect. Instead of vampires, witches, werewolves and zombies, the true scares often come in the form of accidents or overindulgence.

It’s so easy to get carried away with the fun and festivities — so much candy, so little time — that you forget about the real dangers that are lurking out there.

To keep your Halloween revels safe instead of scary (OK, maybe a little scary!), be aware of some of the most common dangers on Halloween.

Don’t let the real-life scares get the best of you. If you know what’s really lurking around the corner, you can still have a safe and happy Halloween!
