Halloween Moving to Last Saturday of October?
It could happen. Some people think that October 31st falling on weekdays is just inconvenient for their trick-or-treating and partying ways.
Theres a change.org petition with 69,000 signatures and counting. It only needs 75,000 to make it to the desk of Donald Trump. The petition says:
It's time for a Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration! Let's move Halloween to the last Saturday of October!
- 3,800 Halloween-related injuries each year. Talk to your kids aboutsafety before they head out!
- 82% of parents don’t use high visibility aids on their costume, be sure to incorporate reflective tape, glow sticks, finger lights or light up accessories
- 63% of children don’t carry a flashlight while they are tick-or-treating. Grab a clip-on light if they don’t want to carry one!Children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween. Discuss safety, pre-plan a route, stay on side walks and use cross walks
- 65% of parents don’t discuss Halloween safety with their children. Talk with your kids and offer ways to ensure a fun and safe experience
- 70%of parents don’t accompany their children trick-or-treating. You’re never too old to trick-or-treat! Grab a costume and take advantage of some good ol' fashioned family bonding!
- 51% Of Millennials say Halloween is their favorite holiday, why cram it into 2 rushed evening weekday hours when it deserves a full day!?!
Are you down for moving Halloween? Personally, I like it happening on October 31st, but only time will tell if it goes through or not.
