Thursday evening kids and adults will be ringing doorbells all over uttering the phrase 'Trick Or Treat' in hopes of getting a pumpkin full of their favorite candy or treat.

After getting dressed up as their favorite super hero, ghost, zombie, celebrity, ghoul or some other creative design, kids will be scouring the neighborhoods with a plastic pumpkin and going door to door. Many of those pumpkins that you'll be dropping candy into will be the traditional orange pumpkins, but you may encounter other colored pumpkins too. Those different color pumpkins have a different meaning behind them, take for instance the:

Teal pumpkin - this person has a food allergy
Purple pumpkin - this person could have epilepsy and suffer from seizures
Blue pumpkin - this person may have special needs

If you encounter a child carrying a teal pumpkin, that means they most likely have some kind of food allergy. In most cases, kids are aware of their allergy and are happy accepting a non-food treat like stickers, pencils, glow sticks and other fun Halloween items.

A blue pumpkin is a rather new color symbolizing that this person may have special needs or is trick-or-treating for a child with special needs.

You can even take part in helping families identify your house as being food allergy friendly by displaying a teal pumpkin on your front porch or by your sidewalk.

After all, everyone deserves to have a great time on Halloween! Hope you get your pumpkin full of candy Halloween night.
