They Moved It

A little Halloweenish
A little Halloweenish

A big storm is coming soon. On Saturday.

So. They changed it. They changed Halloween. That’s right. Many Southeastern Louisiana parishes changed Halloween. To Tonight. That’s Right. Friday, October 30th. They did it in Orleans Parish. Really, that just means it will be two nights of careening around.


Halloween is not a legal holiday. So the change is really just a suggestion. A strong suggestion. But, who wants their children trick or treating in a heavy storm? Rain blowing sideways. Wind roaring. Children banging on front doors. Instead of yelling “trick or treat,” joyfully, they’d be yelling, “Please, mister, let me in.”

I’m pretty sure that in party central, the French Quarter, people will still be rolling around drunkenly, in the streets. Their treats will be different. I’m not touching tricks. A bunch of clubs on Bourbon Street just got busted for that. They are closed down. But, they are allowed to open for the big masked holiday.  This is, after all, Halloween. And, New Orleans.

The picture. I saw it. I took it. I posted it. It’s not where you think it is. You can tell that because there are some golden leaves.


  1. I think that is the norm anymore to change Halloween. They do not celebrate Halloween on Halloween here either and they started moving in Indiana where I lived a couple of years before I moved. Here the kids were out trick or treating yesterday. I, however, will indeed be celebrating tomorrow. Happy Halloween, Sir.


    1. Hi. I didn’t know that. I guess it kinda makes sense to keep events closer to the weekend. In New Orleans, at least this weekend, it really is because of a huge storm coming from the West. Apparently, Austin, Texas had over 15 inches of rain since about 7am this morning. Weather people are saying NOLA will get between 5 – 8 inches in about 24 hours. Happy Halloween to you too, ma’am. 🙂
