Halloween is by far my favorite holiday of the year. I have always loved it and miss the days of costumes and trick or treating. Nowadays I like to haunt the house and enjoy the costumes of others. It seems to me that Halloween is getting more and more popular every year. Do you decorate for the kids?

I love decorating for holidays and Halloween is so much fun! I don't have kids at home now but still put up decorations. I also dress up to hand out candy. One year I made a shark costume and when the first little girl came to the door she screamed and went running. Her parents were on the front sidewalk laughting! It's so much fun!

I am tempted to dress up myself to answer the door. What fun it would be to teach the real meaning of halloween to kids! I think I will go all out this year and have some real fun in the neighbourhood.

I just have to share this with you...my neighbor has the front of his house all decorated. He has a chair that sits in the decorations with a scarecrow in it. On Halloween he dresses up like the scarecrow.....replaced him and when the kids come up to the house he comes to life! It's such a hoot!

Yes whywiki my hubby and I decorate for Hallowe'en every year! Now that we have a daughter (15 months) she can help us decorate the house. I also can't wait to dress her up, take her trick or treating for the first time, and let her help us give out candy to the kids that come to the house!

I think it would be fun to see Halloween through a child's eyes for the first time. Happy Halloween!

I like decorating for the holidays period. It just gives the place a totally different feel than it has during the rest of the year. I like Halloween myself, but I don't always get to do a lot of decorating unfortunately. I live in a college dorm most of the time, and the rest of the time I'm at home. Home doesn't get decorated much anymore, sometimes the dorms doesn't either and I miss it. I try to make more of a effort but sometimes I just get so busy it just doesn't happen.

I know what you mean sometimes life just gets so hectic and then the next thing you know it is too late.

We don't decorate during halloween. We bring the kids to the mall in their costumes to trick or treat. We also cook some foods for the occassion.

I think it is great that malls are becoming safe havens for kids to trick or treat. There is so many weirdos out there now!

When me and my sister were younger we use to decorate for halloween. We only did the basics though and it was only the inside of the house, we never did the outside of the house for some reason. But when we got older my mom stoped decorating the house because she never liked halloween to begin with because she didnt like how it had to do with the devil.

I'd like to say that I decorate for the harvest season with corn stalks and pumpkins artfully tied together.. or cornucopias hanging on my front door.. or nature wreaths.. but alas I'm afraid the only decoration we get around this house is all those colorful leaves on the ground waiting to be raked up (or mowed hopefully!) and then a little later a carved pumpkin which has frozen, then unfrozen, and sits wrinkling and wilting on the front steps..

I think that sounds lovely and wish I could decorate nicely like that but alas I am not that artistically gifted...

I am a Christian, a member of the Church of Christ and we follow the Holy Bible. We do not celebrate Halloween which is a tradition of the Roman Catholic Church.
