Ghosts, goblins and Freddy Krueger masks are scary but you know what’s even scarier to most kids? Halloween being canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.
Many towns across New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut have canceled Halloween for tonight, asking parents not to let kids go out trick-or-treating while dangerous trees and power lines are still down on many streets and many streets are dark due to widespread power outages.
In New Jersey, which suffered extensive damage, Governor Chris Christie took it a step further, tapping a little known executive order, No. 105 to be exact, and postponed Halloween celebrations across New Jersey until Monday, Nov. 5, citing unsafe conditions.
