Football trumps Halloween

Posted: Updated:
(KOB)  October 31 is Halloween. Every calendar will tell you that. 

But for one New Mexico town, Halloween is now on November 1.

The town of Artesia won't be trick-or-treating on Halloween this year after the Artesia City Council voted 6-0 Tuesday night to move trick-or-treating to the day after, November 1.

The reason? The Artesia High School football team has a game in Roswell against Goddard High School that night.

"People want to participate in that, and this allows them to do both things," said Artesia Mayor Phillip Burch.

But what about everyone else? Some argue trick or treating on Halloween is tradition.

"For it not to be on Halloween, it's just not right," said 5th-grader Faith Houghtaling.  "It's not like the way it's supposed to be.  It's not really Halloween without trick-or-treating."
