    In our country we actually don't dressed up as anything. In our country halloween is the time of the year when we go to cemeteries to honor the memory of our death loved ones, we light up candles and lot of people pray for the spirits to find peace. Our pretty important tradition is the candle march, when people go to streets with light up candles and remember and think in spiritual atmoshpere.

    Basically, I associate it with morbid fun; it was just behind Christmas as my favorite holiday during childhood, and is probably responsible for my love of horror movies.

    It's my favorite holiday. I have always loved horror movies and fall, and my grandfather's wife always made a huge deal of it, I had elaborate homemade costumes and we always had pumpkins and gourds on bales of hay in the yard, carved pumpkins, went to haunted houses. I won a costume contest when I was ten at a bank.

    It reminds me of some of the best moments of my teens. I just love fall and seasonal foods and spices, the mystery and the occult, I even went through a thoroughly obnoxious pagan phase in my teens. Not that being a pagan is obnoxious but I swear I was at sixteen.

    I always celebrate Halloween. I will frighten children or go to a party or have a horror marathon, some thing.

    I swear to you I put on a mask and went trick or treating last year. The trick is to take children along, go to upscale neighborhoods where a ton of people are congregating (last year we were in this neighborhood where rich people were showing classic horror on old Hollywood reels in the front yard, and at one end they were doing dance routines to Thriller etc)...even in smaller places upper middle class neighborhood, other people's children, and a mask is your ticket to candyland. No one will argue with you.

    So while Americans are being good by being sincere, they appear to us as painfully boring.

    And while Australians are being good by being amusing, we appear to Americans as pathetically insincere.
    Halloween is a time when Americans are generous. Even working class people open their doors to the small children of strangers. It's a begging holiday, and when people go all out, it brings other people great joy without cash profit in mind (well at least not for the home owners, but sure for the candy and costume sellers).

    Halloween is fun. It's one of the rare times American people acknowledge death openly, too.

    Not really into it anymore. Although I do love the fall/autumn season. Thanksgiving, though, I can get into.

    Dressing up in costume, scary movies, Jack-o-Lanterns, hot apple cider, haunted hayrides...

    I like dressing up in costume. Scary movies I could do without. We watched The Conjuring last night and it was, unfortunately, a thoroughly unpleasant experience.

    I usually like handing out candy too, but this year I think we've decided to hide in the basement and pretend we're not home. The reason for that is that our new(ish) dog barks like crazy anytime someone comes to the door, and we don't want to deal with that every 5 seconds.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
