National Trick or Treat Day is different, yet the same as Halloween. Here's what parents need to know
A group working to change the date of Halloween was dividing the country, so instead, it opted to create a new "holiday" – National Trick or Treat Day.
The Halloween & Costume Association’s petition originally intended to move Halloween to the last Saturday of October but evolved into an additional day of celebration after it faced some opposition. Now it has more than 150,000 signatures and is backed by Party City.
The day has also made it on the National Day Calendar. This, the group says, makes the day officially official. At least as official as it can get.
