Mike Wolfer started this petition to Calendar makers of the world. You. Me. All world governments and institutions. Everyone.

  Let's face it: If it wasn't for Halloween riding in at the tail end of the month, October would be pretty bland. And if not for Halloween, advertisers, marketing whizzes, and retailers would have nothing to promote. But they sure as heck promote Halloween as early as August, don't they? That's big bucks, right there. So why do we even bother calling October anything other than what it is? October IS Halloween, and it's time that we, as the dominant life form on the planet, acknowledge that fact. Imagine... "What day is today?" "Um... Halloween 5th." Or "Halloween 12th." Or "Halloween 21st."

  October has been pretending for far too long. Heck, the name of the month itself signifies that it's the eighth month of the Roman calendar, which we ditched a long time ago. The name's not even accurate. It's time to recognize October for what it truly is. HALLOWEEN. (A second petition will follow suggesting that all clothing worn during the month of Halloween must be black, orange, and/or purple.)
