Thousands Sign Petition to Change Holiday’s Famous Date A petition to move Halloween is in the works, over 8,000 signatures have been received for the Halloween and Costume Association’s petition. The “Saturday Halloween Movement” asks for Halloween to be celebrated on the last Saturday of October rather than October 31st, which usually falls during the middle of the week. The list of pros really outweigh the cons, the petition outlines that it would be easier for parents to get their kids ready for the holiday without being rushed, which makes for more people to celebrate and purchase items related to Halloween which could boost the economy. Also, teachers would have it easier by kids being distracted in class with costumes. What do you think? Would Halloween on a Saturday make life easier for you?
