Halloweekend (Halloween + weekend)

When Halloween ("All Hallows’ Evening” falls on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday, that weekend is often called “Halloweekend” (Halloween + weekend). The term “Halloweekend” has been cited in print since at least 1977.

There have been several “Halloweekend” trademarks, with a first trademark use in 1992. New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority used the term in 2006.


Wikipedia: Halloween
Halloween, or Hallowe’en (/ˌhæləˈwiːn, -oʊˈiːn, ˌhɑːl-/; a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening"), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.

According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christianized feast influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.

Typical contemporary festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related “guising"), attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing and divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows’ Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular, although in other locations, these solemn customs are less pronounced in favor of a more commercial and secular celebration.

20 October 1977, Marietta (GA) Daily Journal, pg. 10 (?), col. 1:
Six Flags To Offer ‘Halloweekend’
Six Flags Over Georgia’s advertising theme is the “land of Screams and Dreams.” But the emphasis will be on screams Oct. 29-30, when the park hosts “Halloweekend.”

27 October 1977, The Sun (Alvin, TX), “Astroworld Plan Halloween Treat,” pg. 14, col. 5:
The three-day Halloweekend unfolds on Saturday, as the Houston theme park opens from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., then re-opens its County Fair section from 6 p.m. - midnight, with special haunted house activities and disco dancing contests.

Halloweekend
When the holiday of Halloween falls on a weekend (being a Friday, Saturday or Sunday), the entire weekend is then dubbed to be a Halloweekend. It may refer to the entire weekend being considered as one large, three night holiday.
John: Hey what are you plans this weekend?
