How do you spell it? Hallowe'en or Halloween?

Both are right of course...but my mother always insisted we spell it Hallowe'en. How about you?

    It's both really. The term Halloween (and its alternative rendering Hallowe'en) is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the eve of "All Hallows' Day".

    Hallowe'en is pretty unique, give it an "Olde Tyme" feeling.

    Both, depending on the situation.

    When I just want to make clear what holiday I'm referring to, then it's plain and simple "Halloween". When I want to seem erudite or eccentric, or I want to start a conversation about the holiday's history, I add the apostrophe. It's much oftener the plain spelling for me, which adds some spice to the apostrophic spelling when I do it.
