4 Ways To Fix Halloween

That picture above is from my area and I couldn’t be prouder.

Did you even know Halloween was broken? You didn’t? Then I feel sad for you. Oh so sad. You’re like a house cat that doesn’t dream of running free outside to chase the squirrels.

When I’m elected President, or Sexiest Man Alive, whichever comes first, I’m going to fix Halloween. Here’s how:

1. The Return of Trick or Treating: Back in the 70’s and 80’s a bunch of psychopaths ruined Halloween for kids by putting razor blades and poison in candy. Now kids are stuck with “neighborhood parties” and trick or treating at the shopping mall. Special Halloween candy will now come in individual foil packets that can’t be opened and resealed and will only be sold on the day before and day of Halloween.


2. Adult Trick or Treating?: Kids will be allowed to trick or treat until 8:30 pm. Then from 9:00-whenever, adults get to trick or treat. Adults will go trick or treating in their neighborhoods too, but for drinks and appetizers. If you can’t have fun dressing up as an adult then just click out of this page and don’t come back.

3. Trick or Treating Hours: Hey parents of toddlers! Stop taking your kids trick or treating at 4:30 in the afternoon. Sheesh! Let me get home from work without having to dodge tiny superheroes and Disney already in my driveway. Maybe I’d like time to have dinner, get into costume, and fire up the spooky music and lights at my house. No trick or treating until 6:00 pm.


4. A New Date for Halloween: When I’m elected President, or Sexiest Man Alive, whichever comes first, I will decree that Halloween will always occur on the first Friday of October.

When you live kind of North it can get pretty chilly at the end of October and nothing ruins a good Halloween costume like having to put a coat on over or under it.

Also, Halloween will stay on a Friday. That way everyone can wear costumes to work that day and people can have a nice party that night without having to get up early the next morning. Halloween on a Tuesday sucks.

When I was a kid Halloween was the best holiday, but now it’s a watered down p.c. version of what it was and it’s lost most of it’s fun.

  1. Ha! If you posed in those pumpkins, you could easily get sexiest man alive. 🙂

  2. Yeah we need you to run for prez!😉

  3. I’m all in favor of fixing Halloween. Maybe move it to June. I’m sure the costumes will get better in the heat.

  4. I am totally on board for fixing Halloween!!

  5. I was so happy when companies started making those fur kids’ costumes so that my son didn’t have to jam a costume over his snowsuit like I had to when I was a kid.

  6. I agree whole heartedly. (Especially about the drink part)
    Halloween is a pale imitation of what we had as kids. I walked for miles, filled a pillowcase twice… and some of the homemade stuff was the best! Sad that’s it been ruined for this generation…
    You’ll have my vote!

  7. All great ideas Phil! I think it’s awful that some people have ruined trick or treating and made it dangerous!! Halloween isn’t as big over here but we do get some trick or treaters and adults get dressed up too!

  8. This year Hallowe’en is on a Wednesday, which is only slightly less awful than a Tuesday! However … in 2020 not only will it be a Saturday, but also a full moon! 👻

  9. Even though this ran ages ago, I’m going to leave another comment. Halloween in June.
