What are your views on Halloween?

I personally don't celebrate Halloween because of its origin and was wondering what everyone else thought about it.

  • I'm with you. so many ppl celebrate it without realizing what it is and what it represents. Even if it were just a night of gathering and eating candy it's not a healthy thing to have kids do anyway! We don't need our children hopped up for days on a sugar marathon. Dentists and businesses are the only ppl that come out ahead on that holiday!

  • It's just a day to dress up and get candy... We personally go to a local festival at a local church. The kids dress up and play games, and ride rides...more like a fair. The prizes for the games is candy. about 1/2 the children that go are dressed up and about 1/2 are NOT. No-one cares and it's just some good family fun!

  • It is my absolute favorite holiday, but since I embrace the origin of the holiday I am coming at it from the other side of the field than you are. So on the subject of holidays with an origin I don't personally find reason to celebrate, I don't avoid them, I just cut out the parts I am not comfortable with.
