This year, Halloween falls on a Sunday, October 31, 2021. A good excuse to offer a short stay in Paris, the time to celebrate as it should be, this festive and shivering ceremony!
This year more than ever, children and adults want to have fun and change their minds!
For the record, Halloween is a folk festival whose Celtic origins go back several thousand years. This tradition was then exported in the 19th century by Irish and Scottish migrants fleeing the famine of the European continent.
The term Halloween comes from the expression “All Hallows-Even” which would mean today “The eve of All Hallows’ Day”. Not surprising, since this holiday is held every year on October 31, the day before All Saints’ Day.
What is Halloween all about? Children dress up and embody the souls of the dead, they wander from door to door asking for candy with only one question: Trick or Treat ?
In France, even if this holiday is sometimes controversial because it is considered too commercial and foreign to our customs, Halloween remains a very good excuse to dress up and have fun being scared !
