Snickers Joins Petition to Change Date of Halloween

You know what sucks? When Halloween lands on a weekday, right?

Well, Snickers thinks it is a great idea to move Halloween to the last Saturday of October and is offering a serious deal to Snickers fans! No, this isn’t a trick...the famous chocolate brand has pledged to give away 1 million Snickers bars if the official date of Halloween is changed to the last Saturday in October.

See their official Tweet below:


How is this going to be monitored you may ask? Snickers resurfaced a petition calling for an end to Oct. 31 celebrations — a petition originally released last year by a group called the Halloween & Costume Association.

“A Thursday Halloween? Not Satisfying. Halloween on the last Saturday of October? Satisfying. If the Fed [government] makes it official, we’ll offer 1 million free SNICKERS to America,” reps for the chocolate bar wrote online. “Join the petition!”

The petition, which directly addresses President Trump, cites statistics to suggest that the new date would allow for a "safer, longer" holiday. Halloween, meanwhile, is not a federal holiday.

Do you think this is a good idea? Or do you think it's a good idea for the free Snickers?!
