A petition to change Halloween’s date from October 31 has been gaining traction online.
Originally started last year by the “Halloween and Costume Association,” the Change.org petition states that Halloween should be moved to the last Saturday in October to give everyone a “Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration.”
Most of the reasons listed for the date change focus on child safety and issues like parents not accompanying their children trick-or-treating.
More than 80,000 people have already signed the group’s petition, which they hope to send to President Donald Trump.
