They may have religious beliefs that are opposed to the idea of Halloween.
Or they might just be me. I don't do Halloween. We won't be doing Halloween. I've told DD this when she nags at me too (she's 7).
I'd let her dress up if the school had a Halloween Disco or something (which I actually think would be a good idea - the fun dressing-up bit of Halloween without the bothering-strangers-for-teeth-rotting-junk part). We just will not be doing any sort of Trick or Treating. Ever.

I love Halloween!
It's an excuse to dress up, eat lollies and have fun! What's not to like?
I think we need a lot more reasons in life to dress up, have fun and celebrate stuff...life is depressing...
ETA; I am not into door knocking, but do go to Halloween events in my area

Not believing in Halloween?
It's pretty big in my area, restaurants and shops have decorations, most of the local schools have Halloween parties/dances and the last 2 years I've had kids come to the door for treats! I think it's harmless fun like Christmas and Easter , plus another excuse for parties!

Our neighbourhood really gets into it and its great fun. The custom here is that outside light on means the house is doing the Halloween thing - turning the light off means don't knock, or we're out of treats. Its wonderful seeing the neighbourhood get together and large groups of dressed up kids wandering around. The young kids are always supervised, everyone's well mannered, there's been no problems so far. My kids love it!
My parents are of the 'don't believe in it' variety and that's fine. For some people it conflicts with their beliefs. Though I find the actual wording 'don't believe in it' odd - you can't really deny it exists as an event after all... But my parents mean 'don't want to support it' when they say that I think, and don't believe in the supernatural element.

But each to their own. Like I said we don't go to houses unless it's obvious they welcome treaters.

That's what I gave last year, the left over lolly bag toys from DS birthday party!

But most people have described a whole lot of harmless fun! I remember dressing up and trick or treating in our street and watching the Simpsons Halloween specials. Just good spooky fun!

Re: Not believing in Halloween?
Yeah i don't get the whole crankiness about Halloween. Dressing up is awesome. Lollies are awesome. Meeting your neighbours- awesome. Anyone who doesn't like Halloween is a big ole party pooper in my book.
