(CNN Newsource) – There’s a growing movement to move Halloween to Saturday — permanently.

When Halloween falls on a weekday, as it does this year, you can’t stay up too late celebrating. That’s kind of a bummer.

That’s why the nonprofit Halloween and Costume Association started a petition last year.

It aims to have the spooky holiday observed on the last Saturday in October.

The group argues it will make for a celebration that is “safer, longer and stress-free.”

As of Monday evening, the petition had more than 107,000 signatures.
