Free Snickers? Yes, please. But it comes at the price.
Snickers officials tweeted that if the federal government moves Halloween to the last Saturday in October, it will give away 1 million free Snickers bars.
For those of you who want the spooky holiday moved, that’s a win-win situation.
A petition was started on Change.org in 2018 by the Halloween & Costume Association, but it has recently gained steam to with more than 123,000 signatures to not have Halloween on Oct. 31.
The petition wants the date changed to help create a “safer, longer, stress-free celebration.”
When Halloween falls on a weekday, it presents challenges for parents and kids who juggle work, getting their children dressed and out the door, as well as getting the kids to bed after a night of sugary treats and then back up again the next morning for school.
While the petition wants the government to make the change, Halloween is not a federal holiday.
A Thursday Halloween? Not Satisfying. Halloween on the last Saturday of October? Satisfying. If the Fed Govt makes it official, we’ll offer 1 million free SNICKERS to America. Join the petition! https://t.co/EycXXuc0tB— SNICKERS® (@SNICKERS) July 26, 2019
