Lets make Halloween a real "Holiday".

I was reading a post on Halloween Forum the other day on how the the Spirit Halloween store wanted to change Halloween Day to the Saturday before. As in, say Halloween falls on a Monday, we would celebrate it on Saturday the 29th. Well, as i don't really agree with changing the date of Halloween just for convenience sake, (there is a historical reason for Oct 31st) this did get me thinking. We need more then one day to celebrate. The other big holidays get two days, Christmas has Christmas Eve, New Years has New Years Eve and everyone knows the night before Thanksgiving is the best night to go out drinking. Oh and I almost forgot, the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday, another day for Christmas. Where is Halloween Eve?

 Now of course to have a true Halloween Eve, Halloween day would have to become a federal holiday which would give a mandatory day off from work and school. There should be no argument here, who wouldn't want another day off. But this isn't about just being lazy and getting another day off, there is good reason for the two day holiday.

Just think of the possibilities, we could have our Halloween Party’s on Halloween Eve, then go Trick Or Treating and visit the Home Haunts on Halloween day. Or if you have a lot of Home Haunts in your area, that are only up for Halloween, you now have two nights to see them all. If you run a Home Haunt like I do, a second day could really come in handy. Halloween Eve could be the "kid friendly" haunt and Halloween Night could be the no holds bar, scare the shit out of people haunt for the teenagers and adults. And now that we have the whole day on Halloween to Haunt our town, a new day time haunt could be set up for the day trick or treaters.The options are endless.

What happens when mother nature doesn’t want to cooperator? A second day might be the haunts savior as, like I said,  a lot of Home Haunters only run there haunt one day. Now you could have at least one back up day if it rains. It really sucks to work for months on a haunt only to be washed out. 

Kids, now having the day off from school, would be able to trick or treating earlier and have more time to hit more houses to get a crap load more candy. And for the parents who usually spend a ton of money on costumes for there kids and themselves every year, now they can be worn for more then one night. Put that Mike Myers mask and gray coveralls on again and get your moneys worth. Or go the other way and wear two totally different costumes. Halloween Eve could be the Slutty Vampire costume and Halloween Day could be Little Red Riding Hood. This is the only way get the most out of Halloween.

Now I know this will conflict with mischief night, but if you need to toilet paper the neighbors house and put Vaseline in car door handles, we could always move mischief night to the night before Halloween Eve. We get three days for Halloween that way. We can do whatever we want to do when it comes to "our" holiday, and nobody can stop us. With more and more families getting into the Halloween spirit,  and Halloween growing exponentially every year. More traditions have been made, needing more time is needed to do them. Let the Home Haunters, Yard Haunters, Halloween fanatics, enthusiast or all around Halloween lovers band together and bring a true Halloween and Halloween Eve to life.
