Here are 10 very chic Halloween home decoration ideas to celebrate it the French way. Even if Halloween is far more popular in the US than in France, I know many French people who actually love and celebrate Halloween in France. For Halloween, many French children go trick or treating and adults usually organize parties at home. French people usually wear scary costumes and love to dress as a zombie, vampire, ghost, or any other creatures. Some people also watch horror movies with their friends or family to celebrate Halloween.
Besides Halloween, in France, we have an important celebration named La Toussaint also known in English as All Saints Day, a widely celebrated national holiday in France on 1 November. While the 1st of November is traditionally the day where you celebrate all saints, for many, it’s most of all the occasion to remember the dead and bring chrysanthemum to cemeteries. In France, banks, stores, and businesses are all closed on this day.

Bonjour! I’m Leonce, I’m French and I’m a Parisian expat currently living in the city center of Amsterdam (I previously lived in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, on the Ile-Saint-Louis). I created Leonce Chenal back in 2018 when I was living in London and missing my home country way too much. Because I truly believe you don’t have to be French or to live in France to experience the French art de vivre, Leonce Chenal is a French digital magazine to help you live your French life, wherever you are.
