    Don't really care for the trick or treating but don't mind a Halloween party.

    DS's Childcare center is having a dress up on the day so I will organize him a costume. Don't see the harm in some dress up.

    I guess I don't really understand what you need to do, what it is etc. because I didn't grow up with it.

    It's not American. My husband is Irish and Halloween is HUGE in Ireland. Having said that, we don't really celebrate it in this house.

    I don't 'do' Halloween. If we get trick or treaters I will just politely tell them that, I won't be handing out lollies.

    We love it. Although we are not Irish, where it came from, we identify quite strongly with our Irish ancestry and celebrate every year. This year I managed to find some turnips to carve

    I love Halloween, I have very fond memories of trick or treating in homemade costumes as a child. We take DD trick or treating, leave our light on to show our involvement (this is the practice in our neighborhood) & happily hand out wrapped lollies/chocs.

    The kids have so much fun and I love watching the excitement, I actually wish we celebrated it like the American's and went all out with decorations.

    I hate it with a passion!

    Last year we had no less than 15 kids turn up together at the door step. They drained my Lolly supply straight away.

    I hate it.

    OH EM GEE... I am seriously so excited for Halloween, this time next week I'll be at a friend's Haunted House and enjoying what is one of the highlights of my social calendar.

    I cannot wait.

    I hope the kid's dad dresses them up scary to hand out treats to any trick or treaters they get, they loved it last year and got to know our neighbours a lot better, it was like a street party.

    I never get this at all. People are out there starting wars, being racist, being homophobic or whatever. People celebrate a commercialised tradition that makes people happy and puts a bit of joy in a child's life and it's the end of the world. I don't get it aren't there really worse things someone could do than celebrate Halloween? I love it because A: my kids are happy and B: I love candy ha.
