A Connecticut lawmaker has proposed moving Halloween to the last Saturday of October, according to a story in the Hartford Courant on Tuesday.

"Halloween is a fun night for the whole family, but not so much when you have to race home from work, get the kids ready for trick or treating, welcome the neighborhood children and then try to get everyone to bed for an early school and work morning," Conn. State Rep. Tim Larson said in a written statement.

The idea has been gaining popularity in some neighborhoods, according to East Greenwich resident Tim Foster.

“I live in a neighborhood where parents have been kicking around the idea - almost to the point where they were going to send out fliers asking fellow neighbors to celebrate it on Saturday,” he wrote in an email.

Is this the talk of your neighborhood? Or is October 31 a sacred (so to speak) date?

Vote in the poll and tell us what you think of the idea.
