Halloween should officially be held on either the last or second-to-last Saturday in October, from noon to 8 p.m. This would solve the annoyance of Halloween falling on a weekday. Kids wouldn't be knocking on doors of houses that are still empty because people aren't home from work.

Parents wouldn't have to come home from work and scramble to get their kids dressed. Offices and schools could have Friday afternoon Halloween parties.
