Just under 5,000 people have signed as of the time this story was published. The petition calls for Halloween to be moved to the last Saturday of October to provide a "safer, stress-free" environment for celebration.

The petition’s author listed several statistics to support the argument for change but did not provide any citations for that information.

Halloween is not a federal holiday in the United States, so it’s unclear what authority, if any, the president would have to change the date.
