There’s nothing worse than when Halloween lands on a school night. I totally remember my son begging to stay out trick or treating past his curfew, but I was one of the MEAN moms and made him come home.
Even when I was a child, I’d check the calendar around the beginning of October to see if Halloween was going to land on a Saturday, so I could make a BIG HAUL, stay out with my friends, go to parties and have a BLAST.
When you think of all of the NATIONAL holidays that have changed dates to land on Monday’s just so federal and state worker’s can have the day off it’s amazing that NO ONE tackled the issue of Halloween before. Well now someone has
Spirit Halloween has created a movement to have Halloween fall on the last Saturday in October EACH and EVERY year.
- More fun. Parties last longer, families spend more quality time together.
- Unrushed. Parents can take their kids trick-or-treating earlier and for longer periods of time and nobody has to worry about rushing home from work to get into a costume.
- Better for the economy. Halloween-related retail sales are as much as 30% higher when Halloween falls on the weekend versus a weekday. And that means more jobs and better paychecks.
Spirit Halloween is inviting people young and old to
1. Throw your own Halloweekend party. If you email the Halloweekend team at email@example.com, they’ll send you tips on how to throw a great bash and a discount for Halloween goodies.
