    I do not celebrate Halloween because Halloween is not an official celebration of any sort in the country I was born in.

    I remember Halloween actually used to be a big thing back in the day I remember my older Brother going as a Vampire and I went as Harry Potter lol, but now I'm too lazy same with most people I think that and this mass hysteria that if you celebrate Halloween you're worshipping the devil.

    No one celebrates it, they don't give a **** about the history or the lore, it's just a chance to get wasted while wearing a scary costume.

    Which is kind of ironic given that the present from of Halloween is a *******ised version of a Celtic spiritual festival of the dead (of sorts) that the Christians hijacked around the 8th Century. Jack o' lanterns were originally made in order to repel evil spirits, so if they're actually serious about their beliefs regarding this then it seems strange that they don't do anything for Halloween considering that they've got a higher chance of the devil entering their house over Halloween compared to those who have Jack o' lanterns.

    not really..

    Personally I prefer to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night..and the two are so close together that havign two parties/family events is to much.. so its either, combine them, or just do fireworks night.

    The only time I would do halloween is with my future children, as its still a pretty fun time for them.

    Is everyone obliged to celebrate it or what? Some people don't even know what that is.
