Trick -orTreating Safety Tips

E

very year children anxiously count down the days until they are able to put on their costumes and head out into the neighbourhood in search of candy. Although Halloween is meant to be a fun occasion for the young and the old alike, it can also be unsafe. Costumes may impair a child’s vision and motor function. Studies indicate Halloween is in the top three among holidays that produce the most visits to hospital emergency rooms. Finger and hand injuries account for 17.6 percent of injuries, and children ages 10 to 14 sustain the greatest proportion of Halloween injuries. Trips and falls also account for a high number of injuries. There are also a good deal of children who become injured before Halloween arrives, many of whom sustain lacerations when carving pumpkins.

To make Halloween a safe holiday, children and adults can heed these suggestions. • Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes. Although kids might want to wear shoes that match the costume, shoes that fit well and are comfortable are a safer bet. This will help prevent tripping and falling over cumbersome shoes. It also reduces the risk of developing blisters and discomfort when walking from home to home. • Go trick-or-treating in groups. Children should not be allowed to go out in search of candy alone. Going in a group means that someone can get help if need be. Also, there is safety in numbers. Predators won’t view a child as an easy target if he or she is with fellow trick-ortreaters. • Be visible. Since daylight saving time begins shortly after Halloween, there are fewer hours of daylight for trick-or-treating. When Halloween falls on a weekday, children have to wait until after school to venture out, and it can quickly become dark. Therefore, make sure that children are equipped with flashlights and put reflective tape on their costumes so they will be more visible to fellow pedestrians and motorists. • Stick to the sidewalks. Children should stay on sidewalks and cross the street only at established crosswalks. • Do not enter homes. Unless a child is with an adult and the home is owned by a trusted friend, kids should not enter homes for treats.

• Avoid candles and jack-o-lanterns. A costume can easily catch on fire, so it is best to steer clear of candles, luminaries and lit pumpkins. • Bring water. Costumes can become hot and uncomfortable, especially when worn for long periods of time. Be sure children have water to rehydrate themselves. • Accessorize safely. Select flexible swords and knives if they are accompanying a costume. Avoid rigid items that can cause injuries. • Examine all candy before eating. Before kids have their first bite, parents should inspect candy wrappers to determine if there has been any tampering. Also, avoid homemade treats from homes unless you know the people who prepared the items. TCG

It is a safe idea to go trick-or-treating in groups. Also, try to visit only homes where you know the people.

Do We REALLY Know Dracula?

D

espite the movies, books, historical references and personal delving into his story, there is much that is still a mystery about the story of Dracula -- the mythological figure purported to feed on the blood of unsuspecting victims. The blood-sucking being explored in the novel by Bram Stoker is believed to have been loosely based on an individual from Romania credited with heinous and bloody crimes. Vlad III, also known as Vlad Tepes “Vlad the Impaler,” descended from a father named Vlad II Dracul from the House of Draculesti. This was in the House of Basarab. These people were a family that had an important role in the establishing of the Principality of Wallachia, a geographical region in Romania. The Romanian word “drac,” derived from the Latin word “draco,” means both dragon and devil. October 2012

Vlad III was a prince who spent much of his rule campaigning against the Ottoman Empire and its expansion. He was well known for impaling his enemies, and his reputation for his excessive cruelty grew throughout Europe. He was likely dubbed “Dracula” thanks to his family name. Many people believe that Bram Stoker borrowed loosely on the tale of Vlad III to create his book. Other than the name and the region in the world where Count Dracula was supposed to have lived, there are no real similarities between the fictional and historical Dracula. According to a book written by Nicolae Stoicescu entitled “Vlad Tepes,” the author expresses resentment about how the historical figure of Dracula had been appropriated by the West and converted into a popular horror icon. He is quoted as saying, “This nonsense ascribed to Dracula [the novel] is highly popular and overshadows the true image of the Prince of Walachia. Those who would like to go on cultivating Dracula the vampire are free to do it without, however, forgetting that he has nothing in common with the Romanian history where the real Vlad Tepes whom we know by his deeds holds a place of honour.” TCG

The Poppy is a Symbol of Wartime Remembrance

T

he poppy has stood as the official symbol of Canada’s Remembrance Day since 1921, a visual reminder of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for war. Some may wonder why this small flower is used to represent the fallen soldier.

In Flanders Fields In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

Poppies and fallen soldiers have a long history together. The origins of the flower can be traced back to the Napoleonic wars in France. During these times of unrest and battle, many soldiers went on to final resting places in graves in Flanders, France. Ensuing literature describing how poppies grew so thickly and vibrantly over these graves -- in soil that once could not produce much vegetation. Years later, a soldier would be instrumental in bringing the symbol of the poppy to the hearts and minds of Canadians.

We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.

When John McCrae served in World War I as a Lieutenant-Colonel, he was stationed near Ypres, Belgium, the area traditionally called Flanders. McCrae observed how poppies grew so well among the makeshift graves of the soliders, which were marked by wooden crosses. When McCrae lost a fellow soldier and close friend, he penned a poem called “In Flanders Fields” and portrayed the picture of war and the poppy flower visual.

Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. To this day McCrae’s poem remains among the most memorable war poems ever written. It also paved the way for the poppy flower to be one of the most recognized symbols of wartime remembrance. Thousands of poppies are placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Remembrance Day participants wear poppies on their lapels. TCG

What to do When You Can’t Pay Your Debts

– Advice from a Trustee

I

n my role as a federally licensed Trustee with Sands & Associates in Langley I spend my days meeting with individuals of all ages and from all walks of life. The one thing that all these people have in common is that they are feeling burdened by the enormous weight of their debt, and are looking for solutions to relieve the pressure. More often than not, it is a combination of external factors that leads to debt trouble. Typically a person experiences some “shock” to their finances and lacks the resources to continue to make good on their debt obligations. Life events such as medical issues, job loss, relationship breakdown, business failure, or even just the day-to-day challenges of providing for a growing family can leave honest people in a situation where they find themselves unable to service their debts. If you find yourself talking to a friend about their financial challenges, you can pass on to them this handy list of five practical steps an individual can follow to take charge of their financial future: 1. Assess the Situation – Take a few minutes and write down a list of all of your debts. Also note their minimum monthly payments and keep a running tally. If you haven’t been opening bills for a while, take a deep breath, get a pad of paper, and work 10

through the stack of bills one at a time. Knowing exactly where you stand is absolutely critical to fixing the problem. 2. Stop Borrowing – The first step to solving a debt crisis is to stop borrowing. Take a look at your monthly budget and assess whether your lifestyle is appropriate to your paycheque; the one has to fit the other. If you find that you’d be able to live just fine if only those monthly debt obligations were reduced, then you may be ready to take the next step of evaluating your financial options with a professional. 3. Be Careful Whom You Seek Advice From – The Federal Government licenses and empowers only one type of professional to provide formal debt assistance: Licensed Trustees. A Trustee will meet with you confidentially and at no charge to review your financial situation and advise you of your options. Be careful of “Debt Consultants” or unlicensed “Debt Advisors”. In many cases these are US-based companies that market heavily in Canada but are unable to provide any real debt assistance beyond what you could do yourself. Don’t get fooled by marketing claims that appear “too good to be true”; often, they are just that.

4. Understand Your Options – Many people are surprised to learn that bankruptcy in Canada can last as for little as 9 months (and not the commonly understood 7 years!) Many people are also surprised to hear that a Trustee can assist with a voluntary debt repayment plan known as a Consumer Proposal. A Consumer Proposal is often the best way for an individual to avoid bankruptcy by making an offer to his or her creditors to pay back a portion of their debts (often 30%) over a period of 2-4 years without any interest or penalties accruing on their debts. Consumer Proposals have only gained popularity in Canada since 2009, so it’s understandable that not many people have heard of this great option. But these days, more than 50% of the individuals I assist choose to file a Consumer Proposal instead of going bankrupt. There are options for you. 5. Take a Long-term View – Just because you’re in financial difficulty now doesn’t mean that this will always be the case. A great number of successful individuals have had to make difficult decisions on

October 2012

how to move forward once they found themselves unable to deal with their debts. But it’s not the end of the world. In many cases, by filing a Consumer Proposal or a Personal Bankruptcy, an individual is able to look toward the future with a sense of optimism, knowing that they’ve dealt with their debts once and for all. For many, it’s a cathartic process that allows the debtor to move on from their troubles with renewed hope. If you, or someone you know, is struggling with an unmanageable debt burden, please reach out to us at Sands & Associates at 604-539-0200, or online at www.sands-trustee.com to arrange for a free, confidential evaluation of your financial options.

H

alloween dates back thousands of years to ancient Celts and Europeans. Although Halloween is now largely associated with the celebrations that take place across much of North America, where 65 percent of Americans decorate their homes and places of business in the Halloween spirit, Halloween is celebrated in various ways around the globe. England: In the past, Brits tossed objects such as stones, vegetables and nuts into a bonfire to frighten away the spirits. These symbolic sacrifices also were used as a form of fortune-telling. If a pebble thrown into the flames at night was no longer visible in the morning, then it was believed that the person who tossed the pebble would not survive another year. Halloween fell out of favour after the Protestant Reformation spread through the country. However, in recent years some have begun to adopt the American tradition of trick-or-treating. Hong Kong: A Halloween-type festival in Hong Kong is known as “Yue Lan,” which is the festival of the hungry ghosts. It is believed that, during this time, spirits roam the world for 24 hours.

Czech Republic: Czechs place chairs by a fireside on Halloween night. There are enough chairs for each living and dead family member. Italy: Halloween traditions have just recently begun to blossom in Italy, where decorations and pumpkins are popular. While many of the traditions borrow from the Americans, there is at least one uniquely Italian tradition taking place in the hill town of Corinaldo. La Notte delle Streghe, “The Night of the Witches,” occurs in this town with music, dancing and a witch-themed fashion show that names Miss Strega (Miss Witch). Australia: Halloween isn’t as popular in Australia as it is in Canada and the United States. Australians may celebrate Halloween as Guy Fawkes Eve or Mischief Night. Children create mischief or get treats. Many Australians simply celebrate the holiday with a dance at their schools. Halloween is alive and well around the world. Perhaps this year North American families will want to incorporate some global traditions into their standard Halloween plans.

France: Halloween is considered an American holiday by most French and was relatively unknown before 1996. Ireland: Ireland is thought to be the birthplace of Halloween, and many of the same traditions of old are still practiced today. In addition to costumes and treats, individuals may play an apple-bobbing game called “snap-apple,” where participants have to try to take a bite of an apple suspended on a string. Children also play tricks on neighbours, including “knock-a-dolly,” which is essentially a variation on “ring-and-run.” Spanish-Speaking Nations: Many Spanish-speaking nations celebrate “El Dia de los Muertos.” It is supposed to be a joyous event where people remember friends and family members who have died. Candles and incense are burned to help the departed find his or her way home. Austria: Some people will leave bread, water and a lighted lamp on the table on Halloween night before going to bed. It was once believed that such items would welcome the dead souls back to Earth on a night Austrians considered to be full of strong cosmic energies.

Did You Know?

R

emembrance Day in Canada is a day to commemorate members of the armed forces. Remembrance Day is observed each year on November 11 because that marks the official end of World War I in 1918. On that day, the Germans officially signed the armistice, an agreement that officially put an end to the fighting in WWI. That’s one reason why Remembrance Day is often referred to as Armistice Day. Though the day has a significant connection to World War I, it also honours the men and women who fought for Canada in World War II, the Korean War and those who continue to serve in the military. Over the years, more than 1.5 million Canadians have fought for their country and to defend the rights and freedoms of non-Canadians as well. Among the Remembrance Day traditions is the wearing of poppies, which are worn as the symbol of remembrance and a reminder of the blood-red flower that grows on the former battlefields of France and Belgium.
