Oct. 30 (UPI) -- A New York state town has agreed to undergo a spooky temporary name change -- from Huntington to Hauntington -- thanks to a 7-year-old's suggestion.
Officials in Huntington said the town will be known as Hauntington for one day Oct. 31, and on every Halloween going forward, after the town board unanimously voted to approve the suggestion from 7-year-old Angelica Dee Cunningham.
"One of the best things about Huntington is the way we celebrate Halloween. I love getting dressed up, going into town and tricker treating with my friends," the girl wrote in a letter addressed to Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci.
"I think this Oct., Huntington should officially be called 'Hauntington.' This would be fun to say, for me, my friends and all the citizens of Huntington," she wrote.
The girl said her suggestion was inspired by a Monster High doll named Ari Hauntington.
