Halloween in France….

Well Halloween approaches and once again another pass in France. Many years ago I participated going around each home in New Jersey, then as grow older stop. Then several years later had sons, and started them on it in Florida, going around with them dressed in superman, etc;;;; they continue until we came to France for good in 2003.

We then saw the kids in the neighborhood coming to our day for candies trick or treat and it was magical again. We started handing them out but them they were so many after the years went by and we decided to a big bowl of candies outside the door, and they well behave took it. Now my sons are grown man ,and no longer do it. I still have the nostalgia of it , I guess the kids never left out of me.

Here are some spots in the Paris region to do it, that I have participated before, usually the American Cathedral or Church hosted them but this year the Cathedral under renovation and do not know if they do it.
