I remember the good old days when the end of daylight savings time and Halloween fell close together.....an extra hour for Halloween adult revelry at your favorite watering spot!!!!!


I remember the good ol' days when Halloween marked the official day when evening temperatures dropped from the high 60s to the high 40s. Meaning, you were freezing your butt off in that cheap, paper-thin costume that you thought would be warm enough when you bought it three days ago.

"Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church"

Tradition.

''Halloween is the evening before the Christian holy days of All Hallows' Day (also known as All Saints' or Hallowmas) on 1 November and All Souls' Day on 2 November, thus giving the holiday on 31 October the full name of All Hallows' Eve (meaning the evening before All Hallows' Day).''

I don't have any little ones. My kids are all grown but the youngest didn't really go trick or treating as our town limits the activity from 6-8PM and to twelve year olds and under.
Who wants to send their kids out like that any more anyway?

Of course I get your point here buddha. Christianity borrowed numerous celtic and other traditions of local cultures so as to make their message more palatable to people in what ever locale the ''message'' as invading. Even so it still has for the last boo coo years be celebrated by Christian peoples making it a Christian tradition wouldn't you say?

Halloween has its roots in the ancient pre-Christian Celtic festival of Samhain.

Which was celebrated on the night of October 31 by the Celts, who lived 2,000 odd years ago.

If Jesus and Christianity could not change that fact what chance does that Muppet have? LoL

True, but modern Halloween is still not Samhain any more than modern secular Easter is a pagan holiday for the goddess Eostre. The roots are there, but the celebration ain't the same by a longshot. Substantially more goes into Samhain as a fall celebration than what we do today for Halloween. Again, because they're not the same holiday at the end of the day. Secular Halloween just has it's roots in it.

Didn't Halloween become famous because of the astronomical significance? Changing the date makes no sense in that regard.


No, Halloween is all Hallows eve, which is followed by All Saints day. Sheesh, anything to meet commercial demand in America isn't it?

Surprised they aren't campaigning for Christmas to be every weekend.

There is no need to change the date of the actual holiday just change the Trick or Treating day to the weekend before. Around where I live Trick or Treat days and times are left to the discretion of the town or borough. No need to mess with a tradition.
I would threaten to move EVERY holiday to a weekend and see how long it takes for folks to realize they'll never get any holidays off from work.

It didn't fall upon the 31st for no reason or in vain...

Changing it would make it lose value -- historical and sentimental alike.

Regarding the President and Halloween.

I once heard that the thing he has in common with a jack-o-lantern is that they are both Orange on the outside, empty on the inside and should be thrown out in early November.

Thanks for the replies everyone. There are some really damn good ones here (you know who you are) so again , thank you and keep up the good work. I really dont have much else to say here for now other than I do not think that this will happen until next year anyways,and I guess that we will see if I am correct soon enough.
