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.

I think every parent has thought about this. What issues did you consider and what was your final decision?

I know parents with children and familys at home and school age still celebrate but I was just wondering if anyone else still celebrates Halloween and if so what do you do to celebrate? Haunted houses? haloweened themed parties? Just curious

Please don't tell me it is for the children's sake. Let me emphasize... Christians not others, but Christians.

Do you celebrate Halloween for religious reasons or do you celebrate it just for fun?Do you celebrate Halloween simply because you like dressing up, spending time with your kids, and having fun, or do you celebrate it because you consider it a religious holiday? By religious I mean something along...

Should Christians celebrate Halloween?I wonder if too much emphasis is put on the holiday to represent souls and spirits. I see it as a day for people to really enoy life, be something or someone else, and have fun. What do you think?
