The date of Halloween should change depending on where you live

Ever had the frustration of a cold, snowy environment on October 31st? Not in the mood for trick-or-treating anymore, or your kids are expressing huge frustration over having to wear either an ugly sweater UNDER (what a fashion disaster), or a jacket over their costume?
Many of us suffer this frustration, but what can you do? You live in a cold part of the world, where it is a chore to enjoy a night out with your friends, or to take your kid trick-or-treating.
Well, what we can do is change the day Halloween occurs on! Yes, I understand it is a long standing tradition and somehow it might not be as creepy to some people, but it also used to be a long standing tradition to sacrifice people to the gods. I wonder how we got out of that phase.
Now, what would be the method for this?
I propose either:
- City/State/Province/Other decides beforehand what the warmest day in October is and announces it to the citizens who then spread the word.
- All (I suppose some, as most (?) countries do not celebrate it) cities/states/provinces/other with similar climate decide on a single day they will share as their Halloween, if October 31st is okay, they default to it.
- Every country individually selects what day their Halloween will be on each year.
Would it be nice?
At least for me, and a few other people I know, yes.
