Know the Advantages and Disadvantages of Celebrating Halloween on a Tuesday
What are your plans for Halloween this year? You probably think it’s too early to start thinking of such matters, but it’s not. Halloween falls on a Tuesday in 2006, leading to a variety of pros and cons for you to consider. Getting a leg up on your game plan for All Hallows Eve will allow you to prepare for all the circumstances surrounding a midweek holiday that involves children, chocolate and costumes.
On the plus side, Halloween being celebrated on a Tuesday this year isn’t a big deal when it comes to children. No matter what day of the week this holiday comes, children are going to find a way to trick or treat and stuff themselves silly-regardless of the consequences of sitting through school the next day with a turbulent tummy. In addition, most kids will enjoy Halloween parties at school, at friends’ houses and on multiple weekends due to the Tuesday celebration. Translation: more candy, more fun and more time with friends.
For adults, a midweek Halloween means that many establishments will hold events on the preceding Saturday as well as the following weekend-on top of those events that fall on the holiday itself. Not only will it be more acceptable to leave your house decorated for longer periods of times and pretend you’re still a kid by dressing up more, but you will also have more opportunities to go costume shopping to ensure you find the right match for you. A Tuesday Halloween also offers a built-in excuse for going out on the town and staying away from work-and who couldn’t use another reason to do that?
Of course, there are some drawbacks to keep in mind with a midweek holiday. Even if it is going to be celebrated regardless, it is still a school night and a work night, and it will be tough to avoid a sluggish Hump Day after Halloween. Since it is primarily a children’s holiday, adults will likely have to take one for the team to make sure that their kids have a great Halloween.
