Petition: Let’s Move Halloween To The Last Saturday of October.
This year Halloween falls on a Wednesday. If you're a parent, you gotta get home right after work, get the kids into their costumes, take them trick or treating, get them back home, sort the candy, and get them to bed (and to sleep) so they can be wide awake for school the next day. Without them eating ridiculous amounts of candy in between and taking it all to school the next day.
And, chances are as an adult, you did your grown up Halloween festivities this past weekend.
Would it be better if it all just happened on one day. Say a Saturday? Then the kids could go trick or treating without the rush of a pending school day the next day? And some folks even argue it's safer to do it then. They have even taken to an online petition at Change.org addressed to the President.
“It’s time for a Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration! Let’s move Halloween to the last Saturday of October!” the group, also known as the Halloween Industry Association, states on the online petition.
So we asked you this morning, SHOULD WE MOVE HALLOWEEN TO THE LAST SATURDAY IN OCTOBER?
Take a listen to some of your answers from Monday's Mornings @ Large:
This mom thinks we should move it because there's just not enough time in the middle of the week and after work.
This mom thinks it 's a great idea for the kids and her. Not having to worry about work the next day and the spirits won't mind.
But where does it stop? This mom thinks the 4th of July would be next.
A couple of callers said leave it right where it's at. What about TRADITION?!?
Do you support the idea? If so, let the know at Change.org. As of this posting, there were 28,474 signatures on their way to 35,000.
