Do you celebrate Halloween? We don't really celebrate it with parties, instead we visit the cemetery where our loved one's bodies are buried. We do it in communities of friends and relatives that's why it's somehow a 'party'. We just talk there and just bond. How about you? Do you celebrate Halloween? How do you do it? We did try dressing up as costumes before and even doing trick-or-treating since we belong in a community of homeowners who are tightly knit, it didn't work though, most just go on vacation somewhere since it's a long weekend holiday.

When i t ios halloweel we tend to let the children come out trick treating with us for about an hour then we go home and answer the door to all the other trick treaters that come to our door.Other than that we do not do partys.

Well in my country, although people know there is such day as halloween, but most of our people don't know when is Halloween day actually occur. And also, not many really care about Halloween. So there is no celebration nor trick or treat. Although some small community make a celebration, it is not really popular and not many people attend to it.

Well I don't actually celebrate halloween either to be honest. On some years I have been to watch a bonfire display but that's about it. I guess it is nice that you mark the ocassion by going to the cemetery. For me personally, I feel it is more of an occasion for children, but that's just my personal opinion and I am sure everyone has different views on this.

Hi Laydee, We put up decorations, bake cookies and I always like to make popcorn balls to give out as treats for the children that may pop over for a visit. Watching scarey movies on TV or DVD is always fun. I did carve a pumpkin this year that's something I normally don't do sense the kids are older they don't seem to concerned one way or another. I guess I'm just a kid at heart I love any excuse to decorate and bake!
