No it not a national holiday ( or should I say Federal holiday that gets days off) and I never had the holiday off nor my son or grandchildren who are in school now.

@SharkE I haven't heard that it is.  I'd find it odd if it were.  Our schools just had their fall break.  Is it possible that the schools in your area are having theirs later and Halloween just happens to fall during it?

Why do you ask?  Are they closed in your area?  Maybe parent teacher conferences?

 

They are not closed in my neck of the woods.

I'm in a Next Door Neighbor blog and somebody said

"I know the schools are closed Mon".   I go to self

"huh, what holiday is Monday" I check and it's Halloween

she must be confused or something.

 

Surely, we haven't sunk that low.....

Hopefully, she made a mistake or something.

My goodness.....we just had Indiginous People's day earlier this month, and Veteran's Day coming up in November.  Surely they wouldn't add another holiday inbetween???  Besides.....Halloween, a holiday?????  Why. I wonder, would that even be considered to be "holiday worthy"? JMHO.
