  • I can't say personally but I know of one family that doesn't dress up or do the trick or treat thing, however, she runs our Fall Family Festeval. The woman is an amazing organizer. Her children don't dress in costume but the boy who is high school age helps out and the girl who is 5th grade participates in the games.

  • It's just another day for us. We don't do anything to "replace" Halloween.

  • I would love not to celebrate halloween but my kids love it too darn much. So I guess I will freeze my booty off and grab some free chocolate.

  • We are having a family fun night. We do this about once a month anyway so it's nothing really special to replace halloween. We don't hand out candy because no one stops anyway.

    I have no problem being a weirdo. I know what I'm doing is the best for my kids.

  • Anon the irony of that statement is that I am a weirdo and I celebrate halloween. And most weirdos I know celebrate it. It is the original day of the dead for pagans who are very often labeled weirdos, so you are conforming to a day of weirdos in order to avoid being a weirdo...?
