    I was wondering which date is Halloween celebrated in US? Is it 26th or 30th? If it is 30th, is there some other event on 26th. I am asking because I run an ecommerce store and since the last few days, I have been getting many customer requests to ship the item by 26th.

    Anyone?Thks in advance.

    It's the 31st in the USA. Maybe they want their items for parties that might be happening over the weekend...

    Most people are going to have their parties on the weekends for most Halloween's since its not a major holiday and people are not going to be getting off work for it.

    Huh? Christmas is Dec 25th but how could it matter what religion you are? If you are a muslim, or jew or buddhist, you still understand that Christmas is Dec 25th.

    What he means is that Christmas is a Christian holiday. Other religions don't "celebrate" christmas, jews celebrate Hannuka, muslims celebrate the end of the ramadam, these dates fall around christmas but is most of the time not on 25 december.
    However, you are right christmas is christmas on dec 25th. The other religions just celebrate other things, that you don't celebrate.

    Ofcourse, I don't know if the other religions celebrations are also holidays in you country, like christmas is. So in most western countries, these other religions will also have time of work on christmas, even if they don't celebrate it like christians.

    PS: Don't give me bull like those hardcore no brains for themselfs religious people about: "Its the day jesus was born, blablabla." Bullshit.
    December 25th was a heathen celebration when the days started to become longer again (solstice), so "light" concured "night". in these old days light was good and night was evil. So december 25th was the day that good conquered evil. Or you could say the sun was 'reborn'. Many of these heathens worshipped the sun.
    Christianity adapted this date to make it easier to convert these heathens into christians.

    If you don't believe me, explain to me what a christmas tree has to do with the birth of "christ" and why there is a fat dude in red jacket running around :p (ps: santa claus & coca cola & marketing)

    Ps2: I'm an atheist :p

    Technically they celebrate it on the 31st. Most of the celebrating goes on during the closest Friday and Saturday or the holiday.

    What he said was that Christmas is vaires depending on your religion. I am not a christian. While I do not practice any religion, I was raised a jew and do not celebrate Christmas but I know it is always on Dec 25th.
    It's clear that many other holidays fall around that same time of year but he specifically said "Christmas day" depends on your religion which of course is non-sensical.

    And let's please not hijack the thread with your other comments (which I happen to agree with)

    I was refering to the orthodox christians, some of them still have the julian calender and others use the revised julian calendar.

    Which means it can vary in the world standard calender.
