Why dont you like halloween?

I dont want to start nothing i just honestly want to know why SOME dont like halloween,
some call it satans holiday,
its not, if they did their research they would know all about it,
it honestly makes me mad about it, halloween doesnt have to be scarey if you dont want it to be!
I seen one post this woman said, ITS A SATAN HOLIDAY, my kids wont go its about killing,
well first its all about candy and being somthing silly staying out past your bedtime, and being a kid!

  • Yet another fun tradition some people are week minded enough to think can bring their religion and beliefs to a screetching halt...get a grip is about kids getting to dress up and get free candy, I have never been possesed by satan from trick-or-treating!

  • I love Halloween, I always have =]

    I'm just not doing anything this year because I'm pregnant (so nobody will invite me to parties because I can't drink) and my boyfriend is working that night. I'm highly looking forward to taking my daughter out next year though :D

  • That is ridiculous!!! I have never heard of that I heard say that halloween is devilish but I did not think nothing more than that. And I like the way you put it on how you feel about halloween that is my thoughts exactly. Just enjoy they grow up so quick.

  • I wonder how many of the parents who won't take their kids trick-or-treating today loved going when they were kids themselves.

  • Actually, I always liked Halloween until I met my SO. Hos ex-wife was born on Halloween(she's a real witch) and because of that every year he is miserable and refuses to celebrate it, annoys me, I feel like I am being punished!

  • I celebrate Halloween now as an adult because my mom made me stop when I was 8 years old! Thats really the only reason why... She felt Halloween was the anti Christmas and against anything that is holy... I personally feel that their are worse things out in this world, than a child smiling back at me for some candy!
