SHOULD HALLOWEEN CHANGE DAYS? PETITION ASKS TRUMP TO MOVE CELEBRATION DATE - Newsweek
Children who will celebrate Halloween on Wednesday will only have a few hours to dress in their costumes and knock on neighbors doors for candy, but a petition is asking President Donald Trump to change the date from October 31 to the last Saturday in October.
The petition, known as the “Join the Saturday Halloween Movement,” urges the government to change the date so children celebrating Halloween can celebrate all day. The petition was started by the Halloween & Costume Association, a nonprofit representing the costume and Halloween industries.
