We’re approaching the spooky holidays of Halloween. Do you decorate your home to celebrate All Hallows' Eve? Why or why not?

No, we don't celebrate halloween.
I don't. Do many Australian's decorate their homes for Halloween?
No, not many. There are a few who get into the spirit of things. I just think it's fun for the kiddies who trick or treat.

We don't.
It is not a Christian practice,so we leave well alone. :)
It's All Hallows' Eve! 'Hallowe'en' is just the shortened version of that phrase.
Day before All Saints' Day! Holy Day of Obligation.
I attended All Hallows' School, Grades I to XII.
So it's quite Christian, IMO!

Forget about all the 'yankiefied' rubbish!

Christians are told it is not
to be practiced.... :)

I didn't say I practised it! Just gave a provenance of the word.

BTW, it's also 'tied-up' with Samhin, ancient pagan festival of good crop outcome.

Nope. we don't celebrate Halloween. We don't give out trick or treat stuff either.
I did when our kids were young but not any more. I do usually keep some sweets at the door for the trick or treaters although last year I heard one kid say, "that's not very much to give us" as he walked away. So maybe this year he'll get even less - nothing!
LOL! hate it when people are ungrateful! At least he didn't get fruit, like us!

Thanks for the idea, Vee! Let's see how he likes that!
No, I sure do not -don't believe in it -it is an American thing which Australians do not celebrate.

No. We hate it with a vengence. Most of our neighbourhood does it, so we have to turn off all the lights lock the house up and go out for the night somewhere else so we're labelled as party-poopers.

Yes I love to decorate my front patio for Halloween and use my scrapbooking supplies to decorate about 30 trick or treat bags for all the children who would call by. Unfortunately I have moved to another area this year and no one seems to do anything, but I will decorate my patio as usual. Will decorate a few bags as well just in case!
Good on you jillr! The kids must love it!

My only 'thing' is I've started a 'Candle' collection!
First was a 'Black Owl', then a 'White Skull', so I await this year's addition!
As have travelled to Mexico a few times', have a 'beautiful(?)' 'Day of the Dead' carved skull. That Feast is celebrated around 3-4 November, so close to All Hallows' Eve!
Hell no. I live in Oz, & Halloween is NOT an Aussie celebration, anyway i thought Halloween was just 1 day off school/work if it's even a public holiday. As I write this, it's still 5 months away!

I enjoy all the kjds doing the rounds of the street dressed in some really great costumes. I have orange and black balloons all around the front and on the letterbox to indicate our participation and loads of sweets for everyone. I find the majority are not greedy and only take what I've indicated. Only had 2 who took more than they should and they were told not to be greedy. Last year we had more than we've ever had. I'd say at least 50. I've a cackling witch on a broomstick which permanently hangs in my entry and when I clap, or a loud noisd is made, she cackles and spins around. Only one little one was a little taken back by her.
