Create "Trick or Treat Day" on the Last Saturday of October!

To be delivered to The Connecticut State House, The Connecticut State Senate, and Governor Dan Malloy

Petition Statement

By creating a "Trick or Treat Day" that falls on the last Saturday of October, more children (and adults!) can enjoy visiting neighbors and not have the worries of staying up or being out too late on a school/work evening. This does not affect the religious celebrations of Halloween that will remain on the 31st.
There are currently 717 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

The Anna and Raven Show from Star 99.9 understands the frustration of both parents and homeowners when trick or treating falls on a school night. Many love this tradition but when it lands on a day during the week, it becomes a burden for parents and homeowners alike. By creating a "Trick or Treat Day" across Connecticut as the last Saturday of October, then the inconvenience is alleviated and those who celebrate October 31st as a religious holiday can continue with their annual traditions. We believe that starting Connecticut's "Trick or Treat Day" in October of 2018 gives state residents plenty of time to adapt to the new day of celebration and candy giving!
