This question may be more for those of you who do not have any living children. Do your losses make it harder to participate in Halloween festivities, have no impact, or are you somewhere in between?
We've occasionally gone to a Halloween party for adults, but DH doesn't like to dress up and it's no fun for me to dress up by myself so more times than not we don't celebrate Halloween ourselves. Without DS, we probably wouldn't do anything at all for the holiday. I think it would be too hard seeing the kids dressed up and all.

We give out candy and that's about it. We're not really into Halloween so it hasn't been too hard, but this year will be more difficult because it's my 1yr anniversary of my 1st loss (ectopic) and the day will never be the same.
I have never really been too into Halloween. I've never been to a costume party, and I don't really care to go to one (not too into dressing up). I felt DS was too young for trick-or-treat last year, but we went over to hand out candy at my mom's house (and that was after I had m/c'd earlier in the day). The kids don't usually bother me, because it isn't like everyone is bringing their newborn around (if that were the case, I'm sure I would have trouble).
