I have to come on here and say HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Yes, I celebrate it. I live in America, and I love this country and this holiday. I love the freedom we have to celebrate the holidays we choose to celebrate.
Hope everyone has fun !!!

I will not be going to the "Orange Festival" as it is said in my new town today. My son will be celebrating Halloween, trick-o-treating, and wearing a costume.

I hear Christians complain that the atheists have taken over Christmas, and destroyed its meeting. However, they have already done the same thing to Halloween.

Halloween is a thinly veiled Satanic holiday, and therefore, I want no part in it. But thank you for wishing me a happy one.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! To all of you...

I'm not celebrating this year, but definitely next year (money is kind of tight right now for me and too many drunks out on the road). So, maybe next year when I'm in Florida already or something.

Satan must love plastic masks and candy. What a terrible guy! Much better it is to send children to a local church's "Hell House" so they can be psychologically terrorized by images of a torturous afterlife, created by a "loving" god.

That reminds me of a church that I used to go to here in Prescott, called the Potter House (also known as The Door). I was a member there for 6 months (from Sept. 2004 to 2005). They had a Halloween "Hell House" thing, and I was very disgusted by it.

It's a very fanatical church and the members frown on you when you don't show up to a service and such. I got out of there real soon. The last 3 months I only went sporadically and just never came back again.

Halloween isn't supposed to be taken seriously. Just for fun (for the kids, mainly). I don't know why some religious groups (such as Potter House) think it's all about Satan and stuff....Sheeesh!!!

Actually, if you did some research on Halloween's origins, you'd know that trick-or-treating is an ancient Druidic practice intertwined with human sacrifice, and that Jack-0-Lantern's are actually meant to mark homes which are friendly to Satan and his minions.

And yet we can be sure that there will be no human sacrifices tonight. Just plastic masks and candy.
