If the of held this is any indication, Halloween is just around the corner. Next Monday, neighborhoods will be filled with kids in costume, doorbells will be ringing and lots of candy will be given out.
But would it be easier if the festivities were set for a weekend, instead of whatever day Oct. 31 happens to land on? That’s what one Connecticut state representative is .
Democrat Tim Larson’s idea: Designate Halloween as the last Saturday in October.
"Halloween is a fun night for the whole family, but not so much when you have to race home from work, get the kids ready for trick or treating, welcome the neighborhood children, and then try to get everyone in bed for an early school and work morning," said Larson in a news release.
"Halloween has also become one of the top holidays for retailers selling candy, decorations, costumes and general party supplies. Jobs are created by this holiday, so let's make it a little more fun and safe for everyone, and create some jobs too,” he said.
What do you think—should New York follow suit? Would you like to see Halloween fall on the same day every year?
