    I don’t celebrate Halloween either – I find it so hard when it’s impressed on us.

    Some years I enjoy getting into the Halloween spirit, but this year I simply don’t have time. We are off to a Halloween party and really need to find something for my daughter to wear, but don’t want to spend much for a couple of hours!

    These are some great ideas. I actually love Halloween as I grew up with it, but in the shops today, I just felt pretty disgusted about how everything Halloween related these days seems to be plastic tat! Definitely love these alternative suggestions…

    Love the idea about the Christmas Pumpkins, can imagine they will look great. I actually really like Halloween, I don’t like the comercialisation, but thats the same with most things nawadays!

    I love Hallowe’en. It originates from the Celtic tradition, so growing up in Scotland it was obviously a big thing here, and still is. We usually go for spooky costumes, because the idea behind that is to scare off evil spirits – and not, as portrayed in many American movies, anything to do with Devil worship – so in a way it is positive.

  6. I personally enjoy Halloween (or should I say that I always enjoyed the fun my kids got out of it) but nothing should be pushed on anyone, so to say that kids must dress up for nursery is not okay in my opinion. I think it is very important we don’t push our own personal views on our kids, though, and although you might not celebrate in your own house, I don’t think kids should be made to feel different or that they are missing out. As you said though, you don’t need to dress them up as skeletons – a cuddly animal is still a costume!

    Thank you for sharing these awesome tips. We should really stop scaring kids with some of these dreadful costumes. I really like the idea of carving a happy face.

  8. There is so much pressure these days on parents to spend a small fortune on costumes when they’ll only be forgotten about a day later! So silly so these ideas are really great.

  9. Some great ideas here for people who don’t want to celebrate Halloween. Thanks for sharing.
