( CNN) Americans go batty for Halloween. We’re not “afraid youre going to” dig deep to have a howling good time.
Dressing up as scares and monsters, such those working in Fortnite( this year’s most popular garb ), will gobble up $3.2 billion in temporary apparel without even a bloodcurdling holler. Ghoulish emblems will slurp up another $2.7 billion, while candy will drain a mere $2.6 billion from our veins lives.
What’s genuinely petrifying: The very pieces we purchase to have a frightfully fun holiday can help maim( or even kill) us and our loved ones if not used with caution.
Choose a ladder with slip-resistant feet that extends at the least 3 feet over the roofline.
Region it on firm and grade ground. If it’s not, buy leg levelers at the hardware store.
Establish sure the ladder can support your load and have a aide hold it at the bottom.
Don’t use a metal ladder near any power lines or electrical equipment.
