Does it annoy you when you meet someone who doesn't celebrate Halloween?

I've had two friends on here that just became distant after I told them I didn't celebrate Halloween. They thought it was unbelievable. What's the big deal? Do other moms on here find that annoying?

  • You don't celebrate it HOW? No trick or treating? No costumes even for school parties? No decorating?

  • Not me, but then again, we don't celebrate halloween. I have had people be really shocked and act like we're depriving our kids of something wonderful when I tell them we don't celebrate it. My family never celebrated halloween when i was a kid, and I don't feel like I missed out on anything. I had a wonderful childhood, so will my kids.

  • I'm used to it. As a teacher w a small Christian and Jehovah community, we were used to it during da holidays. I think it's when u don't understand it that ppl wanna give their 2 cents. Everyone's different.

  • To each his/her own.... No, that wouldn't annoy me at all. The only time something like that would annoy me is if they'd start trying to convince me not to celebrate it either. But what they do or don't do is none of my concern.

  • Ok...
    why would I care what you do or dont believe? Especially about Halloween. Now if you said you didnt believe the sky was blue or something.
