Halloween is one of those celebrations that’s fairly debated and controversial. Some families do not participate because of conflicting spiritual beliefs. Some families don’t participate because of health concerns (kids can trick or treat but they can’t eat the candy so what’s the point kinda thing).
We don’t celebrate Halloween, but we do participate. To me, that’s not the same thing. We don’t say it’s a “holiday” or anything. It’s dress up and get candy day. That’s it. Others may find a deep historical meaning to the day, but we don’t.
Having said all of that, I respect everyone’s right to celebrate or not celebrate how they see fit. Part of that whole independence and freedom thing we cherish as Americans.
What about you and your family? Do you participate in Halloween festivities?
