There are a few lessons that need to be learned for anyone who grew up outside thew great state of Texas.
Probably the most paramount is “There is nothing that gets in between a town and its Friday Night Lights.”
Back in 2014, the town of Decatur, about 66 miles Northwest of Dallas, once completely rescheduled Halloween because it interfered with a high school football game.
Per USA Today, the Decatur City Council voted to move Halloween up a day, to October 30, as October 31 was actually senior night for the Decatur High Eagles.
Police Chief Rex Hoskins actually suggested the change, as he said a third of his force will be needed at the game.
He also said that a lot of younger kids will be at the game anyway, instead of trick-or-treating.
Decatur went on to beat Gainesville that night 29-25.
