JC often celebrates (trick or treat) on Saturday nights depending on when Halloween falls. I heard that other nearby cities will do it on Monday the 31st. Does anyone know what day Johnson City will trick or treat?

Thanks

If it is on a weekday, it is usually on that day, correct? Ive never heard of it being changed unless it is on Sunday. I do not celebrate the holiday myself as a religious principle, but if I did it would be on Monday no matter what day the city says. The idea that a city can dictate what day a "holiday" can be observed is stupid to me anyway, but I understand that it happens.

That's the way it used to be but for some reason I thought they changed it locally within the last few years because it was easier on school children not to trick or treat on a school night. But I could be wrong. It happens occasionally

That's ridiculous, you can only celebrate Halloween on the actual day of Halloween, which is always the 31st.

I agree, tarp.

I love Halloween. It's my favorite holiday.

Christmas gets on my nerves so to know it's coming is somewhat sickening.
