Should we move Halloween to the last Saturday in October

Halloween isn't so far off now, and many people are hoping the date of the holiday can be made more convenient for them. The Halloween & Costume Association (HCA) is asking for a "safer, stress-free Halloween" in a petition that is asking President Donald Trump to move Halloween from October 31st to the last Saturday in October. So far it has over 71,000 signatures, and the organization is hoping to snag at least 75,000. The petition writers argue that if the holiday falls on a weekday kids often end up trick-or-treating in the dark, and often alone-- they say this contributes to "3,800 Halloween-related injuries each year." The HCA describes itself as the "preeminent authority on Halloween."
