Law would change the date of Halloween!
A new proposal introduced in Connecticut would change the date of Halloween night!
“HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – This year’s Halloween falls on a Monday, but one Connecticut legislator would prefer the state to recognize the holiday on a weekend, even if it means not celebrating on the 31st.
A recent proposal by Conn. State Rep. Tim Larson pitched the idea of celebrating Halloween on the last weekend of October rather than the holiday’s traditional Oct. 31 date. Larson (D-East Hartford, South Windsor) came up with the idea after talking with parents of young children, who usually find themselves either having their night of trick-or-treating cut short if Halloween falls on a school night.”
“Of course, some remain skeptical about Larson’s proposal to alter the scariest day of the year for Connecticut children. Among those is Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.”
““The Governor is worried about confusing the ghosts, goblins, and witches – so he thinks leaving Halloween on Oct. 31st is the right thing to do,” Juliet Manalan, press secretary for Gov. Malloy, said in an email to FOX CT. “No disrespect intended toward Rep. Larson, of course.””
