Earlier this week the City of Lawton announced the official Trick or Treating date and times for 2022. Since All Hallows Eve falls on a Monday this year the city decided to move the celebration and traditions to the Saturday (10-29-22) before Halloween. It's caused quite a bit of controversy and complaints among citizens.

A lot of people are upset that the holiday, or at least Trick or Treating, has been moved from the actual 31st to the 29th. We did an article or story when the City of Lawton made its announcement, you can click here to read it. Once the word got out about moving Halloween to the weekend people immediately responded.
Check out the official press release from the City of Lawton below:
Honestly, I can see both sides of the argument. I will say that by moving Trick or Treating to the Saturday before Halloween makes it a little easier, especially if you have small children. This way all the kids and families can really enjoy Halloween and not have to rush home to get to bed for school and work the next day. Plus, we get the entire weekend to celebrate Halloween by doing it like this. But that's just my opinion.
I do see that moving the holiday, or at least Trick or Treating takes away from the Halloween spirit and the traditions. I mean we don't do this to Christmas, Easter, the Fourth of July, or any of the other holidays. So I do get why some people are upset by this. What do you think?
