According to the WOKV Facebook page, “an idea being floated by Jacksonville City Councilman Don Redman” is moving the local trick or treating to Saturday in the Jacksonville, Florida area.
Whatever the reasons given, the biggest reason NOT to is pure confusion; half the kids wouldn’t get the message and may try to trick or treat on either night. The advantage of Halloween on Sunday this year is that adult parties and kid special events ARE on Saturday, freeing Halloween Sunday just for treating and home celebrations.
It’s no secret that I enjoy setting up a cool little graveyard with special effects and such, and I have time set aside on Sunday afternoon to set it up. I have no desire to do it twice, nor can I leave it set up over night for fear of idiots destroying or stealing parts of it. And, yes, I’ll have pictures up here very soon.
