An online petition being circulated is asking President Trump to change the date of Halloween.
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.
