    We sorta celebrate, when in Ireland I get caught up in the hype. Here we kind of do because of family traditions. Kids love it, but I actually hate anything spooky - so I'm not great with it. Plus I wouldn't let my kids trick or treat - don't accept food of strangers, so I am really not much fun at Halloween.

    Yeah, Halloween is not my thing.
    Plain old creepy.
    In the past, I've been happy to ignore it and even scrounge around for lollipop in the event we got a trick or treater.
    This year, I've been a bit peeved at the amount and placement of creepy crap on display. My little ones have been spooked a number of times as we've been out and about shopping. I know the world doesn't revolve around my children, Im just not sure that gruesome stuff needs to be displayed so prominently in shops.

    I am not into the trick or treat thing but a Halloween party sounds like fun. At the kids daycare they are doing a dress up and Halloween decorations which my kids will be dressing up for. I got given a wiggles Halloween DVD so will let the kids bring that in too.

    Im into really fun stuff. Anything that makes my kids excited and they have fun with, is fine by me.

    Also it's not American. People should learn their history. Americans do however participate. It comes from the Irish.

    And once again is fun.

    We don't participate & I don't even know what Halloween is about but we always buy a bag of lollies for the door knockers. 5 dollars make many kids happy, why not!

    Love it and we trick or treat and the kids have a blast. Our area seem to get right into it too which is awesome. People decorate their houses and leave an outside light on if they are happy to participate. If there's no light on then the kids don't knock.

    I don't really care either way but hate people saying candy instead of lollies or chocolate. Wtf is up with that?

    I don't celebrate it religiously like Christmas or Easter... I don't care if other people do. I think it would be fun to go to Halloween parties & at my parents house the young kids in the street organize to do trick or treating in just their street.. It's good fun for them to dress up.. When I was in high school I went trick or treating with my girlfriends & it was the funniest night ever!! I think it's a bit of fun! I don't think something needs to bring meaning to enjoy or celebrate it.
