It wasn't a thing in my country until shops and American movies started pushing it. I don't remember anyone celebrating it when I was a kid so I always saw it as a foreign holiday. We already have maškare in February, the point of which is also to put on a costume, except there's no macabre atmosphere about it. I like the carnival atmosphere a lot more.

Yes and no.
And with that I mean I live in a country where Halloween is extremely underrated, no kids ever dress up anymore, and you're lucky if you're invited to a Halloween party for adultsish people.
This year I stayed at home and created scary cosplay props and painted myself so that I looked like I'd been beaten up! Very pleased with the result. My dad wasn't.

Kind of planning to celebrate it year after year, but ending up with a really sucky night each time. I'm mostly ticked off about having moved to the UK when I was too old for trick-or-treating (I have been teased with Halloween cartoons as a kid and seeing children get free candy that I couldn't have) . So now my options seem to narrow down to going out and drinking to celebrate, which I find incredibly boring. But I like the idea of dressing up as a monster.
This year my costume was a bit too ambitious and it didn't get finished on time. However, me and my housemates are planning to shoot a home-made cheesy horror when I do finish it.
I think I might start celebrating by helping other people put their costumes together and doing special effect make-up. I enjoy the creative process far more than partying.

It's the greatest time of the year, Xmas is stupid with its lack of costumes and horror.

If celebrate means not doing my homework, watching a halloween-y movie and eating candy like a pig on the couch, then yes. I love it.

No, but only because it's not a tradition in my country. I wish I could though. :/

I guess I "appreciate" the holiday rather than celebrate it by looking at all sorts of halloween related artwork and such. :shrug:

We used to a few years back when it was a little more popular around here but Halloween has started to die down in Sweden lately. Not that I mind, I don't really like to celebrate holidays anyway. We didn't even have any trick or treaters come by this year and there's a lot of kids living around these parts.

:iconamandamyers:
AmandaMyers Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012
There are none. I don't like making excuses for doing things that are bad for my body. I drink because I like to drink, not for any other reason.

Sure, drinking might make me feel less self conscious if I drink enough, but that type of reasoning isn't something that goes through my head when I think about dressing up.

that's weird - well no I mean it's weird to personally - because a lot of people feel like a costume is something to hide behind, and feel less self conscious or awkward. But I'm aware lots of people probably feel the same as you too!

I usually do parties and stuff, but trick-or-treating is a no-no in my country. And even if it WAS part of our tradition, getting from one door to the other without being run over by a car is, well... rather complicated.
BUT AT LEAST WE HAVE A COMIC CON IN THE OPEN! :iconlawooplz:

It simply isn't a part of my counrty's tradition. We have costumes and stuff, but honestly I don't think that many countries outside of the US celebrate Halloween with trick-or-treating.

so not really a no-no, just nobody wants to do it?
