This Halloween, everybody make a scene.

Circumstances regarding Halloween have caused controversy regarding the date of trick-or-treating changing.

With the weather report showing high percentages of rain on Halloween, many neighborhoods have decided to change trick-or-treating to Oct. 30 instead of Oct. 31. This has sparked a wide debate on social media sites, especially Facebook. There are different opinions regarding the change.

The weather for Halloween night has percentages of rain and thunderstorms up to ninety-nine percent. Compared to Tuesday nights warm and clear weather, it was an obvious decision for many neighborhoods to change the loved tradition of the holiday to Tuesday. “I loved that our neighborhood embraced the change of plans for trick-or-treating. Because Tuesday was such a beautiful night, I think there was a larger than normal number of families out. It was fun to see so many neighbors and friends. My boys loved trick-or-treating and I’m happy they were able to participate before the anticipated rain set in,” said guidance counselor, Savannah Richardson.

This decision has angered many, particularly the older population. People have expressed their opinions through memes as well as Facebook posts. One post read “ Breaking News: Halloween will now be in the late spring for good weather. Christmas Eve will also be moved to spring so Santa doesn’t have to fight with snow,” mocking the date of trick or treating changing.

The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office made a post on Monday that says “We received numerous calls today about Halloween and trick or treating. Our agency does not dictate What day is. That is up to individual local governments if they choose to change it #Staydry.” With that being said, whether you’re for trick-or-treating on Halloween or the day before, the community seems open to participating in the tradition both days.
