Hi, everyone. Approaching us soon is Halloween, a super-fun time of the year. 🎃 👻

You get to dress in fun, scary, and quirky costumes and get in the spirit of all things autumn. The partying and trick-or-treating is awesome. HOWEVER, there are some things you may do that can really ruin other people's Halloween.

To keep things fun and not stupid and offensive, here are some well-intentioned pointers from us brown folk, so listen up:

Just a humble request. Thanks, and happy Halloweening!
