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!

I don't see the big deal of having candy ready both nights. While I sgree that we shouldn't change a holiday based on one religion's beliefs, we're not really changing it. Most of us are still celebrating Halloween on the 31st, but we are also accommodating those who want to celebrate it on Saturday. In the big scheme of things, it really doesn't matter. 
 
On the other hand, I completely agree that the local celebrations of Independence Day should NOT have been moved to Saturday. 
 
There are many holidays that are moved to a certain day of the week. Just look at the calendar! :-)

Ugg, don't even get me started on July 3rd vs. 4th! I really didn't understand that one and was NOT happy. 
 
I am intrigued with the whole " I didn't get trick or treaters because I am not mormon" comments. I don't get how people would even know what church you do or don't go to when walking around the neighborhood? Yah, I can see knowing that with neighbors on your street if you are friends, but random houses around the neighborhood? It's just not logical. That is weird- candy is candy at our house no matter who is handing it out, right? (FTR, we had about 10 trick or treaters last year)
