It always amazes me how many folks each year ask when trick or treating is. Really, that's the sperm that won?

In the history of most towns, the only time Halloween is changed is when it falls on a Sunday. They print this stuff on calendars. BTW, Christmas is coming, too

Actually its a legitimate question. They've changed it numerous times in the past. Wytheville usually has it on a different day than Marion and Bluefield this year is having it a day early so as not to interfere with church Wednesday night.

I've lived in Marion for 30 years. The only time they've moved it was when it fell on Sunday.

Last year Halloween fell on a Monday and they still didn't have the actual trick-or-treating then.

Why is it so hard for people to be nice and respectful to others these days? This topic is actually pretty useful to the ones who are planning to take their children out for Halloween.

Don't y'all know that Halloween is a satanic holiday? Any good Christian folk should cringe at the thought of celebrating this pagan day.

YHWH has spoken.

R u serious people halloween isnt for the adults its for the kids to get to dress up and get free candy. Half the damn people in this town are so judgemental and like to start so much drama. You ask me they just need to take this stupid topix page down. All of you that get on here just to put other people down u should be ashame of yourself for that. It seems to me none of you have anyting better to do is get on here and bash everyone else.Seriously your abults act like it and stop acting like kids in high school..

Halloween is a time for all to enjoy. Have you never ever seen a beer commercial or any of the wonderful parades all over. It is a time when the great pumkin rises and flies over only the most sincere punkin patch and bears gifts to all the goblins good and bad alike because he does not discriminate. It is a time of out with the old so we can have another in with the new. Its a time to bake Maybon cakes and give a little back to Mother Earth. A wonderful time of enchantment for all to enjoy. Last year we traveled north with our coven to Salem Ma for the festivities. get out and enjoy yours as well and blessed be.

Aside from your vulgarity, you're wrong. Smyth County has had Halloween on Oct 31, unless it falls on a Sunday, for years.

You probably don't have kids, or only take them trick-or-treating with their school, because they do give out candy on different dates, depending on when the children are in school. And it's been that way since I was in school, it used to be on a Saturday so that the kids could enjoy it more, You never know if it'll be after Halloween or actually on it!! Read the newspaper!

Good grief, people! Smyth County only changes Halloween when it falls on a Sunday. How much plainer can that be? It's been that way for 30+ years, ever since I was a child. When have school schedules ever been altered in late October? Never. So kids go to school Monday through Friday every year. How in Pete's pasture would altering Halloween to a different night during the cool year make any sense? For religious reasons, county leaders decided decades ago to not have trick or treating on Sunsay nights, but ITS NEVER BEEN MOVED OTHERWISE. Schools, churches, other groups may do their own thing on different days, but Halloween trick or treating is always on October 31 unless that falls on a Sunday.
