The only thing I dislike about Halloween is when the 16-22 year olds walk up and want stuff.

So that you don't think bad of me, I will sum up our conversation. i tell them no. Other than that...I kinda like it....but to each their own. I respect the opinions of others who don't like and I understand. I kinda have a weird view of Halloween....it's like all of the problems (represented by the ugliness of some of the costumes) are getting out and leaving our world by 10:00 or Halloween night because they know the joy is coming for the next two months.

When I first starting seeing older teenagers trick-or-treating I thought it was odd. But now I don't mind a bit and glad that all ages are having fun on this night and hand out candy to them all. The teenagers that come to my house are really nice and thankful. But, I understand where you are coming from and I am not thinking bad of you. It is different to see that age trick-or-treating.

I remember when my daughter was 10, she always looked older because of her height. She actually had a lady be extremely rude to her and told her she is too old to trick-or-treat and was going to refuse candy to her. I stepped in and told the lady her age and she changed her mind. My daughter was very upset by this but we continued on and had a good time.

halloween is how u look at it.when i was younger my parents would say they didnt like puttin up decorations or giving out candy becuz it was the devil's holiday.and me being young i thought that was alittle much.im 23 now and dont look at it like that.i mean i didnt give out candy til i got married and my wife wanted to.its really for the little kids to go out and have fun either with friends or just having the feeling of goin out to get candy is fun for someone little.i never looked at it as being a night that celebrats evil spirits or anytihing like that.when i was little i remember kids throwing eggs at houses and things like that so no matter what thats goin to go on cuz they just think thats what that night is for.but like i said ppl have different views on halloween.me i think its for the kids and for them to have a good time.

I know I already answered this previously (saying I didn't like Halloween)...but I will add to my response...

I could probably do without it...but I do enjoy handing out candy to the children! Actually - last year was my most enjoyable experience. I went to my sister-in-law's house and (even though it was really cold that night) we set up chairs on the front lawn and we, along with a neighbour, drank coffee and handed out candy to all the trick-or-treaters...and there had to be 100 children come that night!

I like Halloween but then I have a twist on it also. When my first husband was alive we celebrated a Holiday we called Christween, which is the combination of some Halloween stuff with some Christmas stuff, not to make them all one or anything but to bring Christmas faster and also to appreciate neat stuff like Jack O' Lanterns and decorations like that. Our "Christween" lasted from September through October 31 when the best season, CHRISTmas took over !!! We used to watch Halloween specials as well as Christmas movies together. Never anything gorey though.
