just thought I would remind people that you cannot change the date. It also does not mean (kiddos) that you get to hit the neighbourhoods twice. If you had an activity or party on SAT night, great! BUT HELLO PEOPLE!!!!
YOU DO NOT GET TO RUN AMOK IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD 2 NIGHTS IN A ROW.
If you came to my door and got upset because I told you to come back when it actually was the 31st, sorry. I also had my light off, so what were you thinking?
The calendar is there for a reason. If you don't want your kids out on a Sunday, NOT MY PROBLEM. But, you don't get to arbitrarily decide to change holidays.
:dry: :S
yeah, sorry, I get a little upset about idiocy. :blink:

It was advertised that as a city we would observe Halloween on Saturday night instead of Sunday, so those so called 'idiots' you are referring to were only doing what was advertised. Not saying its right or wrong to change the day, just telling you why most everyone came trick or treating on Saturday night.

not everybody takes the paper. And it still doesn't explain the fact that YOU JUST SHOULDN'T DO THAT.
:side:
And who decides these things? Shall we now have Christmas ONLY on a Sunday?
I have it : ALL holidays shall only fall on Saturday night so as to not decrease productivity.
It is just foolery.
And the subtext is ugly.

Other holidays are moved to be be celebrated on a Friday or Monday to give Federal and bank employees a 3 day weekend. Columbus Day and MLK birthday come to mind.

Note to trick or treaters: Only knock on doors with lights on!!

Doesn't It have something to do with our small town still holding some religious values and It interfering with church services on a Sunday evening? For some reason I think I've heard that. I might be wrong. But If that Is the reason, isn't It great that we still have enough religious freedom to move a meaningless holiday like halloween around? I bet you couldn't get away with that in Dallas. I do agree though Deck.. If your lights were off, what were they thinking? Hello people.

Every " Friday " during football season is a Holiday.

As for not having Halloween on a Sunday....
What better way to get everyone and their family to attend
a church activity? perfect place for a "Halloween Party"
A lot safer than on the streets at night going to strangers houses.

Hardly anyone was in our neighborhood because the Malls all had big "Halloween Partys". They started it a few years ago and it's gained in popularity every year. Activities, games, entertainment, and
Trick or Treat from store to store.

I don't remember any large Mall in SS, but I do remember some large churches.

It's not just church that causes the Halloween move -- SS has moved it for Friday night football games, too!

Hey, religion is religion - and here in Texas that includes football! :silly:

Our churches have some really cool activities. I noticed these are usually on the sat before. No problem, it is great! But quite a few people drive in from out of area to trick or treat in the "city". Every time for the last 10 years on the 31st. I was sad to see trash all over the streets.Some years, we couldn't get out of the driveway b/c of all of the cars. I enjoy seeing all the kids dressed up and the parents out there *walking* (some of them anyway) with them. I guess I just don't like the confusion this has caused.
And now, I get to eat my extremely large stash of chocolate!Cheers for candy :lol:
