    No. Halloween isn't a religious holiday for me. I just enjoy it because I want to.

    Mmmmm...nope. It's all about candy and horror movies on TV for me. I have never bought the "Halloween is Satan's holiday" nonsense.

    No, we always just look at it as a fun holiday. Actually, I don't think I even know anyone who thinks of it as a religious holiday.

    No. The vast majority of people see no religious connection to dressing up in costumes, getting candy, or going to parties. No one is going to confuse Halloween with Christmas or Easter.
    If one so desires they can find something negative about everything they personally disapprove of. A lot of churches today provide activities for their member's children on Halloween for safety reasons.

    The weird thing was, my paternal grandparents were religious and didn't celebrate Halloween and were generally displeased that my brothers and I did.

    However, my husband is Wiccan so Halloween is a huge deal for him. It's always been MY favorite holiday.

    I had several neighbors on my block who were religious and did not celebrate Halloween. They would close their doors, shut the curtains and put a note on the door telling trick or treaters that they did not believe in it. They called it "Devil's night." LOL.

    No....but I don't celebrate it anymore.  It's way too commercial for my liking.

    Nope; though I have heard of some church groups hosting "anti-Halloween Halloween parties".

    Yeah, I suppose it does. I'm a pagan, so Halloween has some important religious connotations for me.
