I am totally confused on this one and am hearing different things. I know a lot of my friend’s children will be going Trick or Treating on Oct 30th since October 31st falls on a Sunday and many LDS members do not want to Trick or Treat on Sunday. However I have heard from many other friends who are not LDS and they are having their children Trick or Treat on Sunday the 31st, and even some of my friends who are LDS members who say that since it is just simply a holiday that they will have their children Trick or Treat on the 31st.

.

So please anyone enlighten me and tell me what’s up? Comment on this article so I can see you feedback or reply to the thread in the forums…

.

From the feedback I have gotten on both sides already of this I would highly suggest from all Daybreak residents to be ready for children who are Trick or Treating on BOTH Saturday and Sunday…

Glad to know it's not just me!

I appreciated this article as it's nice to know we're not the only ones who are confused. We're not native Utahns and I had no idea this would be an issue until my daughter mentioned it as something kids at school were talking about. It's a bit annoying to me that we'd have to consider which day to go, I mean it's kids and candy. :roll But I told her we'd be troopers and just go with the flow, though now it's not clear which way that flow is flowing. lol! :grin Ah well, I guess we'll be ready both days as well and just go when most of her friends are going.

Wait for the sun to set on the sabbath. Besides, trick or treat is more fun in the dark. And, what better way to spend family time together.

Don't be tricked! Candy is fun!

Below are a few links showing adults across the country are getting tripped up over when their children should play dress-up and get candy. Who knew candy gathering could be so tricky? 
In Florida 
In Tennessee 
In Mississippi 
 
Blame who you will, but please don't blame President Obama!;) Whenever you go, HAVE FUN!

Halloween is on the 31st. That's when we should celebrate it! It's not a religious holiday... why change the day we celebrate it because of ONE religions beliefs? Jews practice the sabbath on Saturday... but when holidays fall on a Saturday we don't change them, do we? It was wrong to celebrate Independence day on the 3rd, and it would be wrong to celebrate Halloween on the 30th. I'll be ready Sunday!

We are new to Utah, and even though we are part of the predominant religion, I can see where it might be a little weird to move Halloween. So...we are sending out the little ones to do their trick-or-treating on Saturday, but we will definitely have a lot of candy on hand for those who want to trick-or-treat on Sunday. No harm, no foul.

I think holidays should be celebrated on their designated day, no matter what the holiday. And, if you wish not to celebrate on that day, then that is your choice. 
 
Other towns I have lived in have changed the trick or treating day for various reasons, but they made sure the residents knew and made it city wide to avoid confusion, and to ensure drivers and families could be extra careful when thy are out and about. Why don't they do that here, if there is such a large group that would prefer a change? I think we will trick or treat Saturday and have a party on Sunday. Win win situation!

Porch lights on

I remember when Halloween fell on Sunday when I was growing up, Colorado not Utah and yes it was still an issue with out the LDS population. The rule was that we would go on Saturday but only to the doors that had their porch light on, same thing on Sunday. I just thought this was in the Halloween handbook.

Halloween is Sunday!

Halloween is on Sunday! That is the only day we are handing out candy. Perhaps the people that want to celebrate halloween on Saturday because of their religion should have their celebration at the church. I am not going to be running to the front door for two days because someone decides to celebrate on the wrong day!

Trick or Treating on Saturday & Sunday

Trick or Treating on Saturday & Sunday

Good advice to be ready on both nights. As a non-LDS person who has lived in Salt Lake City for almost 50 years, my guess is the majority of young trick or treaters will be out on Saturday and the older kids will go out both nights.

Our house was completely ignored last year for Trick-or-treaters which makes me think only active LDS homes are visited. It's a shame! Anyway, we will be ready with treats on both nights just in case someone is brave enough to knock on our door! We are really nice people who love kids! The news people covered this topic and suggest being ready for both nights as well.
