Many showing confusion over Halloween celebration date

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, the toughest decision you is not which costume to wear, it is whether to trick or treat on Saturday or Sunday.

FOX6 News talked with people all over the Birmingham metro area and opinions were mixed. Some said Saturday is better because it is not a school night and it is better for religious reasons. Others said the holiday falls on Sunday, so that is the day everyone should trick or treat.
