We don't celebrate Halloween, but my boys aren't easily scared either.

Our neighbourhood is mostly wee ones. We put up cobwebs and pumpkins and window clings, but that's it. Nothing too scary. DS scares really easy and even when DH puts on his mask DS goes running. I told DH he couldn't wear that when he opens the door. The kids would freak.
Yes, I think you have to go by what is best for your child. If it was upto me, it would be very scary but DD does get spooked sometimes so I have to be careful lol. It's always been about being scary in the UK and I never got why in movies kids dressed up like Princesses. That's just NOT Halloween to me.
