    Not for it, but not against it. Just don't see the point in it particularly when it's not overly big here.

    But that's part of why we do it. Each year in our area more and more people join in. Just makes it better and better for the kids.

    We don't celebrate it. DS is 3 and not at school yet so we've managed to avoid the subject. I really don't care for the whole trick or treat thing and will be trying to avoid him being involved in the future. We live in secure units so don't have anyone knocking on the door. Before that we just didn't answer and switched the front room lights out.

    I don't think a lot of people don't celebrate Christmas and Easter, it is a very small minority. Not sure on how many celebrate Halloween, but I have a feeling it's mainly those with kids and it's a small percentage.
    But most importantly, Christmas and Easter are public holidays.... yes!!!!!!
    Who doesn't agree with that?

    Edit: I do confess to being a little annoyed when the Christmas stuff is on display in October and they are flogging Easter eggs in February lol
    Halloween is also a religious event.

    Im neither here nor there on the whole Halloween thing. DS's FDC mum dresses them all up in her costumes but while he's so young, he doesnt really know whats going on. He loves those skelleton and bat accessories when Im in spotlight though.

    We had NO trick or treaters last year. Good thing, because we totally forgot about it!

    There really isn't that much in shops here! I have struggled to find anything I needed for my halloween festivities!
    I could generally find enough when living in the UK, but everything in shops here seems so 'token gesture' I've had to buy online for most things

    I know but does anyone actually celebrate it for the religious reasons?

    Edit: I don't actually know why I'm continuing to post in this thread because I'm not bothered anyway lol

    We celebrate Christmas and Easter - esp Christmas - big time. And I think organised religion is a crock For us it is definitely a cultural thing rather than a religious thing, same as Halloween I guess.

    But I do get what you are saying!
