Halloween is becoming a global celebration worldwide nowadays, but it's still a bigger event in certain places of the world like the USA or England. Do you celebrate it with your kids? is Halloween a big thing over there where you live? I am waiting for your replies :)

Halloween is also huge in Canada as well. Personally i quit trick or treating myself when i was about 11 or 12 years old! I matured too fast to really get into it after that! I have been active and back in the trick or treating business for the past 5 years now as my youngest has had 5 years worth of trick or treating under her belt ... LOL! My baby came with us this year and wow was she heavy to carry around especially in her snow suit! It was fun though taking my daughters out and i know that i will enjoy every other Halloween with them just the same!!!

that sounds so cute. I think it's a pity that Halloween is not that important here...kids would love it.

When my kids were smaller, i would take them trick-or-treating. As they got older, we would just have a party at the house which usually involved water balloon fights and cake fights. Every holiday and birthday i would get two cakes.. one to eat and one for a cake fight. The cake fight of course was done outside so the animals could take care of the cleanup. i have some wonderful pictures of my kids with cake in their hair and all over their faces. Nothing that a little soap and water didn't clean up and a lot of precious memories.

It's really not celebrated here at all - except for a few kids who see it on TV and want to do it. Mind you over the last 2 years or so, the shops have been putting out a little bit of halloween stuff ... obviously hoping we'll jump on the bandwagon!

My family always celebrates Halloween. We dress up and take the kids door to door where they are giving out candy. And we also give candy out at our house. We carve pumpkins every year, usually the kids will each do one of their own and I do one as well. I love Halloween but my kids always end up getting so much junk food I end up throwing some away by the end of November.

Sounds awesome to have such a big event, and mainly for kids. Is Halloween also big in Canada then Angel? here in Spain where i live it is not, unfortunately, even though nowadays you can at least see some pumpkins and witches on pubs and such lol. Thank you for the post.

In my country Haloween isn't an actual holiday, but some celebrate it : parties in clubs or home. It is not like the Americans have it but it is another reason to be happy. :)

Oh yes, Halloween is a very big celebration in Kentucky, USA. Adults are just as thrilled as the children to dress up in costumes go to costume parties. Adults take their children (who are in costumes) trick-or-treating, which is going from door to door for candy. Pumpkins are carved into jack-o-lanterns and festive Fall decorations abound!

I have three grandchildren but no children at home. My son doesn't let them go out trick or treating but does let them dress up in their costumes and give out the candy. Either him or his wife opens the door and then lets the children give out the candy. I think what would be better is instead of letting the kids go from door to door I think one big Halloween party at the school should be the way Halloween should be celebrated. There are so many weird people out there that want to do harm to children. I am glad I don't have any children at home.
