There’s an online petition right now to change the date of Halloween from October 31st to the last Saturday in October. So it would work like Memorial Day, which is always the last Monday in May . . . if you take out the actual REASON for All Hallow’s Eve being on the 31st, it makes sense. The thinking is that it’d be better for everyone if it were on a Saturday . . . from parents looking to take their kids trick-or-treating to people looking to throw on costumes and then throw back a few drinks.
So far, the petition on Change.org has around 100,000 signatures. When a petition crosses the 75,000 mark, it’s sent to the president, so….keep October 26 open, I guess?
