Thankfully today is Friday. We are one day closer to the weekend, and to the Halloween celebrations! However, before you let loose and buy masks, glasses or other outfits to conceal your identity on Halloween, there are some important Halloween laws you need to be aware of. It is imperative that you remember these laws. With these laws in mind, you may actually have a fun and candy-filled Halloween. Otherwise, flush your Trick or Treating plans down the toilet!
Here are some ridiculous Halloween laws. Enjoy!
Silly String Is Prohibited on Halloween in Hollywood, California
Hollywood, Ca: In Hollywood, CA, it is illegal to possess, use, sell or distribute silly string in public areas from 12:00 am on October 31 until 12:00 pm November 1. Violators will be fined $1,000! So if a friend asks you to hold a can of silly string make sure to say NO! You will be fined the $1,000 for merely holding the can! Geez, that’s rough!
Don’t Dress Like a Priest on Halloween in Alabama
Alabama: According to the law, you will get you arrested and fined if you "fraudulently” pretend to be a clergyman. What a bummer! I had bought my priest outfit and everything…
You Cant Go Trick-Or-Treating if You Have Passed the Eighth Grade
Bellville, Missouri: If you have passed the eighth grade and want to go trick-or-treating in Bellville, Missouri, you are straight outta luck! The mayor of Bellville, Missouri was apparently fed up with older late-night trick-or-treaters knocking on stranger’s doors past 9 pm, so he enacted this ordinance to help ease the minds of the homeowners. I agree with this law. First of all, if you are a high school student or older, why would you want to go trick-or-treating? I mean, unless of course you are chaperoning a child, there is no reason to be there. At that age, you should be able to purchase your own candy. No more freebee candy, busters!
You Must Obtain a Permit to Wear a Mask on Halloween In Walnut Creek, California
Walnut Creek, California: According to the law, “No person shall wear a mask or disguise on a public street without a permit from the sheriff.” This law is surely very annoying for trick-or-treaters, but somewhat understandable for every day life. It makes it difficult for criminals to conceal their faces while committing crimes while in the Walnut Creek area. This is not to say that the criminals won’t actually commit crimes, but at least it will make the robbing process a little more difficult. Anyways, if you plan on wearing a mask in Walnut Creek on Halloween, either get a permit or wait until you are off public grounds before doing so.
