The Governor of the devastated State of New Jersey, Chris Christie, suffering under the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, has asked that Halloween celebrations be cancelled tomorrow and rescheduled for Saturday, November 3.
Other officials are beginning to ask the same.
There are two reasons for this. First, in his state, it is dangerous in many areas to go outside due to flood waters and downed power lines. Children would not be safe in trick or treating. Second, the devastation in the Northeast United States is so total in many areas that the populace is simply not in the mood to party.
I think it's a great idea. Please consider doing so.
