This Petition Hopes to Move Halloween to the Last Saturday in October - Fortune
Halloween falls on Wednesday this year—not exactly the spookiest day of the week. Plus, late nights of trick-or-treating and candy eating can be spoiled when you have school or work the next morning.
Thus the Halloween Industry Association—yes, there is such a thing—is petitioning President Donald Trump to change Halloween to the last Saturday in October, every year, regardless of on which day Oct. 31 falls. The association, also known as the Halloween & Costume Association, argues that a Saturday would make a “safer, longer, stress-free celebration.” The three-month-old petition has over 9,000 signatures as of Friday.
