What’s up with Halloween???

Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween!  Dressing up, decorating the house and handing out treats to the neighborhood kids that come by.  What I don’t get is that in Terre Haute it is two days long????  Huh?  I thought October 31st was Halloween?  I haven’t lived here too long, but this two day celebration is a bit much. 

Indiana ranks as one of the top states in childhood obesity above the Mason Dixon and is still pretty high up there when the southern states are included.  So why do we promote two days of candy?  If someone could help with that rationale that would be great!  Halloween is October 31st and that’s when kids should go out and get their fix.  Otherwise, why stop at a two day adventure? How about making it a “Halloweek”!  Now that sounds like a good time.
