Petition proposes National Trick or Treat Day for last Saturday in October

Do you agree?

More than 150,000 have signed a petition calling for a National Trick or Treat Day to be held on the final Saturday of October.

The petition, created last year, originally proposed moving Halloween to the final Saturday of October, but feedback to that suggestion was negative.

The change.org petition claims adding a National Trick or Treat Day to the last Saturday of October would make the holiday "safer, longer and stress-free." Meanwhile, Halloween would remain on Oct. 31.

VOTE NOW: Should there be a National Trick-or-Treat day on the last Saturday of October?

The petition creator claims nearly 4,000 people suffer "Halloween-related" injuries each year, and that most parents don't apply "high visibility aids" to their children's costumes. Though creating National Trick or Treat Day wouldn't make the skies less dark at night, the petition's creator claims the change would create a safer setting for trick-or-treaters. 

The petition's goal is now 200,000 signatures, an update to its original goal of 70,000.
