going out trick or treating Saturday night or actually on Halloween on Sunday? and why is that we never participate in Halloween ON the date anymore?? nowhere where i live is doing anything on Halloween, everything is on Saturday night. i remember being little and it didn't matter if Halloween fell on a school night we wore our costumes to school and went out that night.

  • everything is on saturday here to. but yea i remember when i was little we did it on the day too didnt matter if it was a school day or not. and back then ur parents could drop you off and you walk the whole neighborhood and not have to worry. cant do that now

  • Here, it's always on Halloween. The kids are off from Friday to Tuesday also because of Nevada day and some kind of school district organization days.
