The Government Won’t Move the Date of Halloween So There’s a New Plan to Make “National Trick or Treat Day”
There’s a petition with more than 150,000 signatures to get the government to officially move the date of Halloween from October 31st to the last Saturday in October.
However, it doesn’t look like the date change is happening… so the people behind it are trying a new strategy: Rather than moving Halloween, why not make a new holiday?!
It would be called National Trick or Treat Day, and it would be on the final Saturday of October.
For whatever it’s worth, it has already been added to the National Day Calendar website.
But is it going to end up being a thing? I guess we’ll see. Or everyone will totally forget about this after Thursday and won’t remember until roughly next September.
