The Halloween and Costume Association has launched a petition to change it. The petition asks President Donald Trump to officially recognize Halloween on the last Saturday of October, instead of the 31st.

So far 35,000 people have signed the petition online.

Halloween got its name from Hallow's Eve, the night before the Catholic holiday All Saints Day, which is always on November 1st.
