Sunday Poll: Should Halloween Be Moved To The Last Saturday In October?

This blog was started on Halloween, specifically Sunday October 31, 2004. This year, the 15th anniversary, Halloween falls on a Thursday. Last year was a Wednesday, next year Halloween falls on a Saturday.

An online petition is trying to make Saturday the permanent day of the week when Halloween occurs, regardless of the 31st.

There are lots of reasons to hate holidays: traffic, awkward family reunions, expensive gifts that would wring a tear from anyone’s wallet. But if there’s one celebration absent from all of this holiday drama, it’s Halloween.

It’s too bad that, more times than not, the sugar-laden holiday is set right in the middle of the week, when would-be revelers have to get to bed early.

But there’s a petition aiming to change that. This time, instead of demanding#Justice for A$AP Rocky or storming Area 51, it’s lobbying to bump Halloween from October 31 to the last Saturday of the month. (CNN)

Here’s a little more.

A petition on Change.org has topped its goal of 75,000 signatures to change the popular holiday to the last Saturday of October. With that milestone behind it, it’s planning to send the request on to President Trump. (Fortune)

As of yesterday more than 95,000 signatures had been gathered, the goal increased to 150,000. This is the subject of today’s poll.

Today’s poll will close at 8pm tonight.
