As someone who considers Halloween to be the second biggest holiday of the year (only behind Christmas itself), I am an absolute nut about into getting engaged with every facet of the traditions. I love it all. The creepy decorations, the costumes, parties, trick-or-treaters, and of course the ladies wearing something that any other day of the year they’d be frowned upon, but no, not on Halloween — they get a beautiful pass that day. But the problem with the Holiday is that because the day of the week changes almost every year as it always falls on October 31st, things can get messy in the Holiday planning department.
However, there is a growing petition tens of thousands of people have signed asking that the Halloween holiday be moved from October 31st to the last Saturday of October instead. The petition was launched on Change.org by the nonprofit Halloween and Costume Association. The group says such a move would make the Halloween celebration safer and less stressful. But I think it goes beyond that, and I’ll attempt to state my case below, so hear me out…
Selfishly, I’m going to start with the adult issues with celebrating Halloween on Oct. 31st. I have thrown a huge costume party every year for the past 5 years and it becomes a confusing date to set because often times the end of the month ends in the middle of the week. So when do adults celebrate out in costumes, with drinks and festivities? If the holiday falls in the center of the week now you are facing getting drunk and hungover knowing you will have to limp into work the following day. That’s no good. So most people, like myself, tend to celebrate at costume parties and out at bars on the weekend. But what weekend to you choose, the weekend days before the end of the month, or the weird no man’s landing date a few days after October ends. It’s just confusing, but making the last Saturday of the month the official Halloween date would shore up your celebration woes.
Now let’s talk about the kiddos trick or treating on a weekday scenario. I admit I don’t have kids, but I know damn sure from other parents I’ve spoken to that being forced to rush home early from work in order to dress their kids up quickly and take them trick-or-treating before the limited timeframe expires is stressful. Even for those who, like myself, wish to hand out candy but don’t want to stress about competing with everyone else streaming out of work early, clogging up the streets with traffic, midweek Halloween’s are not ideal at all. I say, let the parents have their libations and costume parties, and let the kids have all the candy they can consume without waking up sick/hungover the next morning needing to head off to work/school. Celebrating on the last Saturday would make that an easy fix.
Sign the petion to change the date of Halloween to the last Saturday of the year RIGHT HERE!.
Oh, and while we’re at it can we go ahead and have Super Bowls on Saturdays from now on so we don’t have to keep dragging our zombified asses to work on a Monday? Please!
