I have lived in a dozen states and Halloween has always been the 31st.When we lived in San Diego county the small community we were in all got together and made home made candy -cookies etc.. There was a major scare about store bought candies.And they cancelled the door to door fun. So one Mom passed the word at the schools for us all to pitch in and the local grocer let us use his parking lot to hand out candy and it was one of my son's favorite Halloween memories. We got to see all the costumes at once and we did a parade thru town to see all the decorated houses. And being new to the town I got to meet a lot of the people So after 30 yrs this is also one of my favorite memories
They will certainly be here on the 31st! (And anyone coming before then won't get anything.) If it isn't raining too hard on Wednesday we will have scores of them. It doesn't seem to matter whether it's a weekend or weekday, they still come.

Its a semi releigious holidy.
On long island, ny its always oct 31, no if, ands, or buts about it. Its not a floating holiday
ive been wanting to change to a saturday since i was a kid. I think they should. BUt going back to the releigious side, maybe thats why they dont.
to those of you who only study your own releigion, and dont go outside the box, halloween is not a devil or evil holiday.
Gosh, so sorry that these kids were wrapped up in all the politicalness.
lets face it, its a kids holiday, just for them. They get to get dressed up as their favorite superhero, or character. I love seeing kids in their coutumes. Since we e moved, we dont get many kidsa, so i studd those bags very well.gift cards to wendys, mcdonals
ds, criendlys, glow in the dark bandaids, pencils, stickers, m&ms, anf about three other candies along with about 10 cents in pennies. Oh and dog isquits for the the four legged costumed treaters.
Where i live, there is a party first 150 or so and its great.
Where i livetrickers.
