Snickers Wants to Change the Date of Halloween

On July 26, Snickers, Twix, Skittles, Starburst and M&M’s all shared a petition to change the date of Halloween to the last Saturday of October. The five brands have a combined total of almost 1 million followers on their Twitter accounts.  The petition, which currently has over 100,000 signatures, was created by The Halloween & Costume Association. According to the petition webpage, having an annual Saturday Halloween would make for a “safer, longer, stress-free celebration.” Supporters of the petition believe having Halloween on the weekend would allow for more adult supervision, as well as more festivities. In addition to promoting the petition, Snickers also promised to give out 1 million Snickers bars if the date is officially changed. Snickers, via Twitter
