    One week today until Halloween :woo:

    Do you guys still dress up and have a party or go out to the pub or are you guys too old now for Halloween?

    I still celebrate it every year. My mum has me and my close family over for some drinks and a takeaway and we dress up. Celebrating it on Sunday this year since it falls on a week day this year. Looking forward to it I'm going as Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon and my hubby was meant to go as Toothless but the mask we ordered for him was too small so he's decided to go with a much easier costume, Hodor from Game of Thrones :yep:

    I've never celebrated it, even when I was young haha. We view it as a commercial thing with no meaning behind it. I'm not against others celebrating it, I just don't do it myself.

    I used to go to Star Parties when I was younger though, for children who didn't celebrate Halloween. We did bobbing for apples and party games I'm a bit old for it now though!

    Yeah, my mates and I usually have a get together where we come in costume (can be anything, not necessarily something scary) and we drink, eat, play drinking games etc.

    Don't dress up and go trick or treating anymore (although in a few years I'll be taking a little one to do it), we still decorate the house and create some pumpkins to put outside though. :jacko:

    I only remember celebrating it once or twice. I think when I was 8 I dressed up like a witch and went trick or treating, but that's the only time. We've carved a pumpkin twice I think too. My mum always bought sweets for any people coming to our door but in our neighbourhood there aren't many little kids so we just get sweets instead.

    I'm not bothered by it. Tbh I'm too lazy to dress up in costume with fancy makeup and stuff. However whenever I go out in the evening on Halloween I do feel a little scared. That's the only night of the year I'm scared of the dark outside. I swapped my shift at work so I didn't have to work late this year.

    Lol same I ****ing hate kids too, a few years ago alot of kids used to come to our house and ask for sweets and we'd turn the lights off too so they wouldn't come in, now no one comes to our house in halloween

    Hallowe'en, the Evening of All Hallows, is a time for Christians to mock the devil by reveling in the triumph of Jesus Christ over evil and death.

    We were never allowed to go trick or treating (my mum didn't like it) but we had sweets to give out if people came to our door - but we dressed up and played board games like Ludo so I didn't mind too much (and ate some of the sweets from the bucket)

    Do you guys still get people chapping your door at Halloween? I don't know if Halloween is dying out these days or maybe I am just older now but I don't noticed kids trick or treating any more. Tbh, I can't blame parents though for not wanting their kids to go trick or treating, I wouldn't allow it if I were a parent, I'd throw a party instead

    I was born in a country which does not celebrate Halloween, so I never celebrated it, even though I always wanted to do so. :sad:

    My birthday is on the day before Halloween, though, so that is enough of a celebration for me around that time.

    Happy Halloween everyone! Hope y'all have a boo-tiful day

    I'm going to make the most of the last day of the year that it's socially acceptable for me to be obsessed with all things spooky and scary :laugh::teehee:

    I don't do it anymore. It used to be fun until I got bullied way through middle school so I decided not to bother anymore.

    I certainly would celebrate halloween, but I am living in a region where it is not so popular and not so celebrated in that extension. So it does not make sense. That is why I am not celebrated today.
