    Not against... but not really keen to get involved.

    I wouldn't mind Halloween parties... that would be awesome. But I think trick-or-treating isn't something I'll ever partake in, even if it became quite popular (which it isn't around here).

    Not really interested. We'll be closing everything and pretending we're not home!

    I'm not interested either. I don't understand the logic of it all either... well of trick or treat anyway...we try to instill all this stranger danger awareness in our children but on one day of the year it's ok for all that to be dismissed...it's ok to approach strangers, knock on their doors, and ask for candy.. wtf?

    It's an American tradition now being marketed here to make money.

    Well I am Irish and it was big thing as kids heaps of fun! Here in oz with kids I do find it bit annoying the door knocking as I'm disorganised! But sigh this year have promised 6 year old we'll door knock too... Just on our cul de sac - think I will wait on the road tho as they head in to annoy the neighbours!

    I'm Switzerland on this one, neutral either way. But if anyone tries to involve me by knocking on my door I will make them do a rosary before giving them a picture of a saint and sending them on their merry way.

    I'm not a fan of Halloween.

    Where I live, the stranger danger thing is almost irrelevant as we know nearly everyone in our small town. I don't even mind being disturbed by door knockers.

    But Halloween seems to be a celebration of evil and creepiness, if you judge by the paraphernalia in Woollies at present (soft toy skeletons??) and kids are technically meant to blackmail people into giving them lollies by threatening to prank them! Not the value system I'm trying to encourage in my kids.

    It's a pity we don't encourage kids to door knock on All Saints Day (the following day where we celebrate people who mostly went out of their way to help others and do good) and receive a reward to encourage them!
