With that thought in mind, then you would suggest Halloween's Trick-or-Treating observance be held on, say the last Sat. of October? Since school is in session, there would only be 2 days out of the week (Fri. & Sat.) where the next day would not be a school day. It kind of takes all the fun out of waiting for Halloween

Believe me, this is not to prompt an argument. My son's in college & no longer goes Trick-or-Treating. I just give out candy at this point! I just want to get my days straight, lol!!

Why don't we just start celebrating Halloween on the First Saturday after the second full moon following the autumnal equinox. Sometimes it'll be in October, sometimes November. Each year can be a fun surprise of when Halloween is, not like some people don't try to do that now.

Our neighborhood isn't conducive to trick or treating either. Lake Park is a huge resource. They do it big there! Lots and lots of kids on Halloween!

Have fun.

What is Lake Park? I am also looking for the best option that is actually ON HALLOWEEN! I think Birkdale Village is on Sunday from 4-6, but I am looking for the most fun for my 15 month old!!!
