Halloween On Saturday? - 10/30/13

  Halloween has been a moving target all my life.  October 31st is on a Thursday this year, which means it will be on a Friday in 21014.  Everyone is talking about postponing the neighborhood candy trek this year in the Nashville area because of rain, high winds and the potential for even nastier weather.  That's a city, county and most importantly a "family" decision guided by safety.

  I'd like to suggest observing Halloween on the last Saturday night in October.  It works for Thanksgiving which is always on the 4-th Thursday in November.  If we observe Halloween on a Saturday night, a majority of parents are off to attend to the children and answer the door.  Children don't have school the next day so if they're up late and get sugared up they can attend a later church service the next day. 

  I have no agenda.  I'm just thinking out loud.  And while we're talking, how would you feel about moving Thanksgiving to the last Friday in November so the masses could enjoy a long weekend without having to burn a vacation day to do it.  What do you think?
