''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).''

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

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