Hello! Mylot Founders, Creators, Admins and Friends! Since Halloween is fast approaching and people are starting to prepare things to celebrate the upcoming event I want to share my childhood experience in celebrating Halloween. In our village way back in my country Philippines, We usually celebrate Halloween by having a village contest of House Decors and letting kids visit and enters the haunted decorated houses before they can get chocolates and candies or any kind of goodies and parents will be outside to rate it I find it fun as most of them prepared their houses very well and scary Since I don`t have any idea on how every country celebrates Halloween. May I know your own opinion. Will you allow this kind of activity for kids to enjoy Halloween? How do you celebrate it in your place? Photo from google search

Well if my children are brave enough to enter the house and not like me who is very coward of ghost, I would let them in. But if they tell me to accompany them maybe I will just tell them its bad to enter in that house.

It`s celebrated in some places but not all. Here is more on parties at the bar, some kids roaming around with costumes to ask for chocolate goodies and after midnight they all gather in a place for little celebration where all food came from different families nearby willing to share some food

@m_audrey6788 Kids are not allowed to go around asking for chocolates or candies here and I am glad of this, I would hate to be annoyed late in the evening while I am still sleeping.

It`s not a real haunted house but it was decorated to look haunted for the halloween celebration purposes only . It`s ok if you don`t celebrate halloween but have you heard or read about it?

When I was a kid I never heard about this Halloween in our place. Now I notice this becomes a fad now every November First. In fact, there's a contest In our public plaza, the weirdest Halloween customs.

Yes of course. Why what is the problem if the house was decorated? Anything to do with the children?

No problem but maybe there are others who might find it difficult to do so because of some issues in their places

@m_audrey6788 It's just something that was a date on the calendar, but there was no trick or treating or dressing up in the past. Now however it's getting more popular, but it's still not big.

@jaboUK Oh ok! here too! Halloween is not too popular but there are some neighbors here really do celebrate it outside their homes at a park area and invite kids to have a few hours to enjoy the day roam around for candies and after 8pm they all go home! Some areas don`t like celebrating it too!

I expect there are a lot of haunted houses right now. Since I don't have little kids around any longer I don't know where they are.

I loved Halloween as a young kid. My daughter, all grown up now and living on her own, never liked Halloween. She was very afraid of the masks and costumes and would never have gone to a haunted house.

Oh me too, I love Halloween it always reminds me of my younger times preparing a simple white lady costumes and go with my childhood friends to visit those scary houses in the village but I also have friends like your daughter who are afraid of scary masks and costumes so they stayed at home with their families and enjoy celebrating differently and I don`t see any problem with that

In our area, everyone decorates their houses for Halloween, kids dress in costumes, and the kids go door-to-door to receive Halloween candy.

This is quite new. We don't have that tradition in our province. We go to the cemetery and visit out departed loved ones, light a candle, say some prayers and eat dinner together on All Souls Day.

There are dangers and so we have keep an eye on our children at all times, especially on Halloween. I never sent my children out. I would buy them all the candies they wanted and did some other fun things.
