Should We Move Halloween From October 31st to the Last Saturday of the Month?
Tim Larson is a Democrat in Connecticut’s House of Representatives. And he wants his state . . . and hopefully the whole country . . . to change the date of Halloween.
Instead of October 31st, it would be the last Saturday in October. That would make it similar to Thanksgiving, which isn’t celebrated on a specific date . . . it’s always the fourth Thursday in November.
Larson says his proposal would just make Halloween EASIER for everyone.
Quote, “Halloween is [a] fun night for the whole family, but not so much when you have to race home from work, get the kids ready for trick-or-treating, welcome the neighborhood children, then get everyone to bed for an early morning.”
As these things always go, his Republican colleagues immediately cited it as an example of the government trying to interfere in people’s lives.
