I am not Christian. I am not Irish. I am not American. Halloween annoys me. Australia doesn't celebrate German Fasching. That's probably because it doesn't make money like Halloween does. Halloween brings nothing to the table..... Any thoughts? I am prepared to be the only one with this opinion .

We don't celebrate it as such, but I also have nothing against it. I see it as harmless fun if it's just little kids trick or treating or decorating their house.
DD is showing a huge interest this year. If our neighborhood looks like they'll participate then we'll probably get involved... It'll be our first Halloween here so I'm not sure how into it anyone gets.

I couldn't care less about it but in saying that the inlaws are having a halloween bbq and they invited us so we are going. Not because Its halloween but so Ds1 can see his cousins and have a play.

Not interested. Will buy some lollipops in case any trick or treaters turn up in costume but my 2 aren't participating

I'm not for it against it. I don't see the point in it, not being from a background that follows the beliefs etc. I think it is now just a way of kids getting free lollies.
But dd1 likes to do it. Its a popular thing to do in our area. I'm kind of "whatever"about it.

yep im the same. dont like the idea of kids door knocking for lollies.
last yr i saw girls who looked 12 is costumes from the s.ex shop obviously like naughty nurses etc. gross.
my kids wont be door knocking. if they want to dress up for it then fine we may have a bbq at home for dress ups but no door knocking!! and i hope noone knocks on my door..

I don't like it either. I think it's very contradictory as kids are taught to not talk to strangers yet on Halloween go knocking on strangers doors asking for lollies?
Mind you my little kids are itching to take part😠

Yeah I don't see the point either. I've noticed as well that it's kind of moved away from scary costumes in the USA and it's mainly just fancy dress. Seems to have completely lost the spirit of all hallows eve?
