Petition Asks Donald Trump to Move the Date of Halloween
I know what you were probably thinking as you read the headline, "WTF, man/woman?!"
Calm down, calm down. No one is saying "Take your 'All Hallows Day' and shove it where the flashlights don't shine!"--at least, not unless the Halloween And Costume Association gets the President to do it.
The push to officially change the date of Halloween is being heralded as the "Saturday Halloween Movement," and it's taking over the nightmare on your street! In this case, your street is a Change.org petition (that already gathered nearly 35,000 signatures) asking for the President to officially change the date of Halloween to the last Saturday of October. It's sort of like how Mother's Day is always on the second Sunday in May, Father's Day in June, et cetera, et cetera.
One of the bullet points in the Change.org petition states that "51% Of Millennials say Halloween is their favorite holiday, why cram it into 2 rushed evening weekday hours when it deserves a full day!?!"
Bah humbug and miss me with that mess. I think the petition by the Halloween And Costume Association hasn't gone FAR ENOUGH! Why settle for a whole day when you could celebrate Halloween for, like, a whole WEEK?! HELLO! This way, I can wear my costume everywhere I go during the whole week of Halloween without people looking at me funny.
