Halloween has seen many changes in the way it is celebrated, and also the mindset of people have placed a impact on this holiday.

Trick or treating has become more dangerous to kids for example. Before it was safe, now it's something we must be careful of.

In the very beginning, Halloween was a time to remember the dead, saints & martyrs included. Pumpkins aka Jack O' Lanterns were originally believed to represent the dead & frighten evil spirits. Rituals were done, among many other things.  

Some things remain the same, while sometimes the same is changed.

Now it's more of a "fun & spooky" holiday where people trick a' treat and have a party.
It's interesting to see how things have changed.

What are your thoughts on this?

Even though it's not as big here, the kids did go out years ago and now the local schools have parties to stop the kids going round the streets

same here, although now with extra precautions when kids go trick or treating. people apparently tamper with the candies!

i never really celebrated halloween though i watch a good flick, and have some popcorn. never bothered with the whole candy thing. or parties.

i think it's become such a "party" think mostly because it was another way to get more money. after all, if things had stayed the way they were, it would people just about nothing. now, everything is elaborate. not just the pumpkin, but now we decorate the yard, (well i don't lol) and garlands, lights, etc.
