Change "fall back" date for Halloween
During Daylight Savings Time clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.
Unfortunately this steals an hour of daylight just before Halloween, and greatly increases the danger to the millions of little children who are rushing the streets in search of candy, while their fathers are madly rushing home to help pass out the goodies,
It would make Halloween much safer for the children and put less stress on the fathers to get home, if the "fall back" of daylight savings time was changed to November 1.
