Halloween in France

Halloween became popular in France in the 1990's, partly due to tourism and to the English people living in the country.

The children wore costumes and, pumpkins were carved and lighted up.
However, Halloween is not part of the French culture and the novelty soon wore off.
It is also a controversial festival, as this pagan celebration takes place just days before the traditional "All Saints Day" - La Toussaint.
