There's an Online Petition to Change the Date of Halloween

The Halloween & Costume Association has launched a petition at Change.Org asking President Trump to move Halloween to the last Saturday of October.  That would make it what's known as a floating holiday, like Presidents Day or Labor Day. 

The Association believes that moving Halloween to a Saturday would make it a "safer, longer, stress-free celebration."  They cite several statistics, one being, according to them, 51% of Americans say that Halloween is their favorite holiday, so why cram it into two rushed, weekday hours when it deserves a full day?

I think they're on to something here - and I'm with them.

Here's the petition.  

And here's a story about all of this in the Washington Post.
