HalloweenWhile we can't say for certain exactly how Halloween will be celebrated one hundred years from now, but we have a pretty good idea about the next three years. But before we get to that, here are some thoughts on how the particular day of the week that Halloween falls on influences this holiday.

For Christmas, it is not uncommon for people to start putting up decorations as early as Thanksgiving and they may leave them up all the way through New Years. Since the excepted Christmas season lasts literally weeks, you have much more time to spread out special events such as parties.

Halloween on the other hand, usually does not become visible until October 31st., or at best a few days before and then vanishes like dust in an Autumn breeze the following day. You may spend weeks or even months in preparation for Halloween night, but all you get is one night.

When Halloween falls on a week day, except Friday, celebrating tends to be smaller, particularly on a Wednesday or Thursday. These days are too far removed from the preceding weekend to have a Halloween party, and its virtually unheard of to hold a party after October 31st. If you have a party on a week night, it usually has to be short in duration as kids have school the next day and most adults have work. The best Halloween falls on either a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, giving more time for parties, haunts and Halloween fun.

The year 2014 will bring another Friday Halloween and the following two years will be weekend Halloweens.

Friday - This is a great night for Halloween to fall on! Kids can celebrate Halloween in school making decorations and having class room parties if they are allowed to, then once home they can don their chosen Halloween costume and go out for tricks and treats. Adults can give out treats in the late afternoon and evening, and then get dressed for that Halloween party, or still have time to throw a party of their own. Plus there can be Halloween parties on Saturday and Sunday as well.

Saturday - This is our favorite day for Halloween to fall on. Kids are out of school and have plenty of time to get ready. They can stay up later since they don't have school the following day. Adults have all Friday night to hold or go to a Halloween party and then have Saturday night to greet their costumed visitors.

Sunday - Our third favorite day for Halloween to fall on, you can host or go to that party on Friday and Saturday and then have Sunday to greet for your trick or treaters. If there are community parties on Saturday, the kids might even want to stay home to hand out candy and look at all the people that come to your door.
