We "celebrate" Halloween, meaning that we participate in it. I know trick or treating was a big deal to me when I was a kid, and I want my munchkins to enjoy it, too. We decorate a little (usually the day of) and my parents like to throw a party for the grandkids. We're the house that passes out handfuls of candy, too! I respect folks who don't do the Halloween thing because of what it represents. I just try not to be so scrupulous that my kids can't enjoy a traditional event.
Honestly, we enjoy fall traditions of apple picking, country fairs, leaf peeping, and all the good food waaaaay more. Food especially! C'mon, Thanksgiving is THE best fall holiday!
