An online petition to change the date of Halloween has gotten a thousand signatures. The request wants the date to move to the last Saturday. Already, more than 65000 people have signed the petition to change the date. The goal of the petition is to get seventy-five thousand signatures.
The Halloween and Custom association claims that there are more than 3800 Halloween injuries every year when it is celebrated on 31st of October. The association didn’t exactly clear as to how the date switch will reduce injuries. A Saturday will allow a full day of celebration rather than a rushed weekday, they mentioned. Schools would have Halloween party on a Friday, and then kids can have candies on a Friday and a tick-o- treat on a Saturday kicked in for the coming week.
The movement was addressed to the President of the United States but later on triggered on to a thousand citizens. It’s time for a Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration! Let’s move Halloween to the last Saturday of October!’ reads the petition. It also states the dangers of having a Halloween on a weekday when parents don’t accompany their children while they are Tick-O-Treating creating more chances of accidents and injuries.
Regardless of whether the appeal increases a huge number of marks, the President cannot effectively change the date of Halloween since it’s anything but a government occasion like Thanksgiving. During affirmed government perceived occasions, all insignificant government workplaces are shut while administrative representatives keep on gathering pay. None of these things occur on Halloween since it is anything but an official national occasion.
Be that as it may, suppose the President was amazingly moved by this appeal, as it presents influencing educated details, for example, how there are “3,800 Halloween related wounds every year,” and that “70 percent of guardians don’t go with their kids trap or-treating,” Trump would need to initially push the authoritative part of the legislature to pass a bill making Halloween an administration directed occasion, and afterward sign it into law.
