We enjoy Halloween.  I wouldn't say we "celebrate" it though.  No, it isn't against my beliefs.  We don't celebrate it as a religious holiday.  We enjoy it as a fun, national, good time.  We aren't worshipping anything that day.  So, there is no conflict.

Yes I celebrate Halloween.  The Pagan holiday is Samhain, I don't celebrate that.  Just like I don't celebrate Yule or Ostara.

The Bible says not to, but many Christians celebrate anyway. I found this article fascinating.

 Halloween isn't the Pagan holiday.

Where in the Bible does it say that Christians cannot celebrate Halloween?

I am a Christian and we celebrate Halloween in the sense that we dress up and take the kids trick-or-treating. Doesn't go against my beliefs at all, in fact our church hands out candy to the neighborhood kids.

It's against the Bible, from what I've read, but the majority celebrate anyway. Most people pick and choose pieces of the Bible for their own benefit. I personally enjoy holiday traditions so I celebrate them. I'm Spiritual/Pagan, so I guess it doesn't affect me. *shrug*
