To be annoyed that DSs nursery is having a Halloween party...

that's being held on a Saturday (so not even on Halloween day / night) that he has to go fancy dress to and they're having a pumpkin carving competition?
I must be really lazy, but I can't be bothered taking him. It's being put on by the PTA.
He's only new at the nursery from this past Sept, and I am thinking a get together for all the new parents and students and the terachers, around the time he started, would have been much more appropriate..
AIBU? Am I real kill-joy?

If you don't like Halloween, then don't go.
If you want to meet the other parents and children then either go (with a happy frame of mind) to the Halloween party or invite parents and children to a get together you have organised yourself .
This by the way is meant in the nicest possible way.

Would that be the volunteer PTA who do these things out of the goodness of their hearts , give up their time to try and raise money for the school and bring parents and children together?
I guess you are saying that next year, when your child has been there longer, YOU will be volunteering to do all the work for a get together early in the term? And hoping that the parents will support you and not complain that it's too late in the evening (bedtime) too early after school (WOHM parents' availabilities) etc etc.

Think maybe you are be a bit unreasonable.
My mum would never let us join in any Halloween festivites and felt so left out when my friends were all dressing up and going to parties etc (I appreciate your DS is a bit young).
Don't be annoyed though just don't go if you can't be bothered

let me get this straight, all you have to do is turn up with son.Nothing else. and yet you can not be bothered to do so
A lot of (other) people put hard work in, gave time, participated and planne to facilitate a lovely free party....so u did not lift a finger/or help. yet you dismiss it as "It's being put on by the PTA". so Ungrateful.
get a grip
