Governor Chris Christie using his governing power declared on October 31st, 2012, that Halloween be moved to Monday. Tomorrow, the 5th of November will be Halloween in New Jersey.
Hundreds of children around Paterson pestered their parents into buying masks that, without the rescheduling would have gone to waste, but Mr Christie has saved trick-or-treating.
During the night of 31st there were few trick-or-treaters along Union Avenue, but from the look of the light bags they hardly received much candy. Others simply stayed indoors not bothering to head out. For the first group it offers another shot to procure free candy; for the second group it finally grants them a safe time to knock on doors for treats.
Monday November 5th, 2012 or tomorrow is the official Halloween date for the entire state.
