Halloween when it starts getting dark. Isn't that the way it is everywhere?

Do they do Halloween on some other night? Trick-or-treating is supposed to start at dusk, but that was pushed back one hour by congress a few years ago, so expect kids to come by while it's still light, around 5:30. I have tell them to come back later, now. 6:15 is a good time.

Probably the OP is thinking of when Halloween was on a week night occasionally towns might have an "alternate" Halloween date in mind. But this year halloween is on a saturday night so I think all is a go for it to be traditional.

I believe Daylight Saving Time ends Halloween night this year (after the trick-or-treating).

Yup! Also, Santa now must come in through doggy doors, and Thanksgiving dinner is a bowl of cereal and a Fiber One bar.

I think he is pulling our legs.

Kids Trick-or-Treat when they want (or when their parents want them to). There may have been a recommendation to move it earlier, but why would Congress regulate something so variable? To answer the OP, it's always on Oct 31 here. I know that some places might change the date around (especially when it falls on Sunday) but here it's always on actual Halloween, starting around when it begins to get dark or slightly earlier, and usually well over by 8 (at which time the big kids start coming around. We usually aren't home on Halloween, but if we are, we turn off the light by 8 but sometimes look out the window if anyone knocks (on a dark porch) after that because they're up to no good.)

Yes, Daylight Saving Time ends that night, more specifically Sunday morning, so it's the night you get an extra hour to party, if you care to look at it that way.

Things just might be different in West Cary.

But here in Raleigh and the rest of the Western World, Halloween is October 31, and most trick-or-treaters are out and about between 7 pm and 8 pm.
