Group pushing to move Halloween to last Saturday in October

Uncategorized

UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — When Halloween falls on a weekday, as it does this year, you can’t stay out too late celebrating, but there is a growing movement to move the spooky holiday to Saturday, permanently.

A petition started by the nonprofit Halloween and Costume Association aims to have Halloween observed on the last Saturday in October. The group argues it will make for a celebration that is “safer, longer and stress-free.”

As of Tuesday morning, the petition has more than 106,000 signatures.
