TULSA, Oklahoma -- It's a trick of the calendar that has some confused about when to hand out treats this Halloween. The 31st falls on Sunday this year, but for some Halloween may come early.

Of course Halloween is on the 31st of October just like every other year. But that's a Sunday.

Some folks have opted for Saturday trick or treating instead. Oklahoma City went as far as to declare Saturday, October 30th Halloween to keep Sunday sacred.

And several Green Country towns have followed suit.

Muskogee's and Sapulpa's city council voted to celebrate Halloween on Saturday night. Glenpool is also opting for an early holiday.

But most other area cities have not made an official decision. Some say it's not their place to tell people when they can trick or treat. 

Tulsa, Owasso, Jenks, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Sand Springs and Bartlesville are all sticking with the traditional date of October 31st for trick or treating.

They advise folks to follow a Halloween rule of thumb: if the porch light is on, so are the treats; if it's off, try the next house.
