Which day does Halloween fall?
I have kind of mixed feelings about what day of the week Halloween should fall on.  In the past I used to like when it fell on the weekend.  That meant is was wild and crazy times for all.  However, I've started liking it more on weeknights.  That gives us the preceding weekend to party, then reserves Halloween night itself for the Trick or Treaters, and then the following weekend to have still more parties (see my page on "When's the best time for a Halloween Party?").
