TUCSON, Ariz. — Snickers is not satisfied with Halloween's current date.

The popular candy bar made a bold promise on its Twitter account recently in hopes of creating more support for the "Saturday Halloween Movement", an effort to change Halloween to the last Saturday in October.

Currently, the Saturday Halloween Movement petition has more than 115,000 signatures.

As an extra incentive, if the federal government makes the date change official, Snickers says it will give away one million free candy bars to America.

The petition posted on has a goal of 150,000 signatures.

"It's time for a Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration!" the petition says.
