It's Halloween! It's also Wednesday ... not the best day of the week for a party. But, does Halloween have to be on October 31st? Couldn't it be moved to the last Saturday in October?
That’s exactly what a group called the Halloween and Costume Society wants to do. They have started a Change.org petition to try and get Halloween officially changed from October 31st to the last Saturday in October. Their reasoning: It’s safer for kids and less stress on parents. The petition goes on to site safety statistics and the amount of Halloween related accidents that happen each year, and there are plenty of people on board. Nearly 35,000 people have signed so far!
- What do you think? Should Halloween be moved to Saturday, or do you like the tradition of it being on October 31st ... no matter what? Share your comments!
