Should Catholics Celebrate Halloween?

Should Catholics celebrate Halloween?

The word "halloween" means the eve of all hallows, that means the eve of all saints. It is an old souls day. Hallows means hallow eve, halloween means the eve of a holy day (...)
I suppose there is nothing wrong with actually celebrating Halloween, enjoying it with families, friends, tric 'r treating. But don't glorify Satan. Be careful what you wear. Wearing skulls and reminding us of our finiteness that's fine. But don't glorify witchcraft and satanism.
