I always thought this myself, why can't Halloween fall on a Saturday ?!? It would be better for everyone, especially trick or treaters because it wouldn't be a school night.
Well a group called Halloween & Costume Association has started a petition on change.org to change the date of Halloween from October 31st to the last Saturday in October, arguing it would make for a “Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration!”
And it turns out a lot of people agree, including myself. The petition so far has 24,000 signatures.
However, some people are really opposed to it saying, it's ridiculous and people are already celebrating the Saturday before with parties. Someone said, “The ONLY reason they want the date changed is for money reasons. The more people trick or treat, the more costumes sold, the more money in their pocket! Get real!!” What do you think?
