Having Halloween fall on a weekday can be a pretty big inconvenience for parents. Many of us have to work the next day and the kids still have to get up on time for school. My kids don't care right now though, they just want to dress up and get candy.

Should We Celebrate Halloween on a Different Day

They were surprised when I made them go to bed at 9 PM last night so they weren't crabby demons today. If only we could celebrate Halloween on the final Saturday of October each year the problem would be null. But, that isn't happening despite a petition we wrote about in 2019.

What Is National Trick or Treat Day?

Since the actual date for Halloween isn't going to change there is now a plan to celebrate 'National Trick or Treat Day' on the final weekend of October. This new holiday wouldn't replace Halloween but instead, change the day we do the candy gathering with our kids. USA Today reports that the idea is backed by the Halloween and Costume Association and Party City. If the idea sticks you'll be able to participate next year and watch a kid-friendly Halloween movie during the week.
