Do you choose to celebrate Halloween, if not what are your reasons?

I know people that do not but have never asked them why. Just curious. Also do you do something similar or in place of it?

  • We do, but I also have a religious holiday (Samhain) that day as well, so it's a double-decker day...

    However when I was growing up we did not celebrate it because of religious reasons. I was raised in a JW household and they do not celebrate anything with ties to Pagan Holidays...

  • I do, It's one of my favorite holidays.

    I know some people don't cuz it's "Celebrating Satan" I personally think it's all in how you look at it.

  • Our daycare/preschool does not allow the children to celebrate it due to religious reasons (they are a Christian daycare) but they do have a "fall harvest" station day a few days before Halloween.

  • We used to when our kids were young but now that they are teenagers, they don't go trick or treating.  We don't give out candy because we only get about 5 or 6 kids so it isn't worth the effort.
