    We haven't, Iv spent most of my daughters life teaching her not to talk to strangers, last thing I'm going to is stand, watch and encourage her to knock on strangers doors to accept sweets. Does anyone actually even know the background to Halloween? It's also just another commercialised event. I'm also not really into valentines either.

    Umm, no. It's not just another commercialised event. Halloween didn't originate in America.

    Agree. It's not just another American holiday, I believe it is a Pagan Irish tradition. It has an interesting history actually

    Yes!

    For the record, we don't do trick or treating on our house but my husband is Irish and it is huge over there.

    I think the true Pagan origins are rather cool. We are a bit of a horror loving family so we love the creepy theme. But all the merchandise, expensive costumes and overall commercialism turns me off.

    If you don't want trick or treaters simply just put a sign up

    When the kids are old enough we will. Love Halloween and I haven't installed fear in my kids to not speak to strangers in case they get lost etc.

    My sisters birthday is on Halloween so it's a tradition that isn't really celebrated in our family. Plus not many kids in our complex last yr trick or treated as I had a big bag of lollies and no one visited.

    Although this yr dh & I will be in Hawaii with my sister and brother, so should be interesting to see how they celebrate it over there.
