Online Petition To Move Halloween Is Getting Attention - A petition to move Halloween is nearing its goal of 75-thousand signatures.
More than 66-thousand people have now signed the change-dot-org petition to move Halloween from October 31st to the last Saturday of the month.
The Halloween and Costume Association, which started the petition, says with 38-hundred injuries each year, it could be safer for children to trick-or-treat on a weekend.
The petition also lists safety tips for parents and partiers.
This whole thing seems pretty unrealistic (to me). Why? Halloween is NOT a Federal holiday---there are only six of them (granted by Congress). Oh well....the topic works for conversation!
