What do you do on Halloween

Updated on October 12, 2012

Halloween, a day for everyone, from children to adults to dress up and give out candy or even go to parties. To others it is just another day, no big deal because it is a day they don't really care about as much as other holidays. Then there are those who don't celebrate this holiday because of their religion and the negative things that they may get out of it.

I can remember when I was younger that my parents would dress my brother and I up on Halloween and take us out to go trick or treating. But it was much safer during that time to go out trick or treating than it may be now. As little children we enjoy going from house to house to get candy and when getting home the excitement of seeing our bags full of candy would put a smile on our face.

As we get older each year, they way we celebrate Halloween changes, instead of going trick or treating, we tend to go to parties and mingle with our friends and loved ones or whoever is at the party. But then that is when one notices how costumes tend to get a little bit different than the ones worn as we were children. Costumes have changed over the years, some are made more sexier, others are still the same, who can forget the simple ghost costume sheet with two holes for the eyes. But there is change most of the time when it comes to Halloween.

Now some organizations are making Halloween more safe by just having a little carnival or even just a small event where they can dress up and get involved in games. Most of the time they give out little bags of candy by the end of the whole event. To most people this is much safer than going from house to house. Do you ever go to events based on Halloween in order to keep your children safe?

Halloween can either mean something or not mean anything, it just depends on the person. Some people may just not like Halloween because of where it originated from but either way people will always have different opinions about Halloween. I, myself, don't really care much about the day because I usually work and so I make no big deal about it but one thing I do enjoy doing is buying chocolate candy for myself around this time.

      That is so true, I heard that 19 and 20 year olds were still trick or treating. I always thought that stopped at a certain age, but I guess it doesn't.

      I've always loved Halloween and, until a year ago, always dressed in costume. Things have been a bit hectic lately, so I've neglected dressing up. I can't complain. At age 60 I guess you gotta start to grow up.

      All those teeth that they have to clean after all the candy has been eaten. It is good what your community does.

      We don't much, except buy and give out a lot of candy. Their are a lot of children in our neighborhood. Their parents take them trick or treating. There is one community party on the day of Halloween, not at night. So, the kids get to have fun twice. It probably helps the dentists get business also:)
