2la Toussaint vs. Halloween La Toussaint is a Catholic festival in France, celebrated November 1st.It is a religious & public holiday and many French people will have the day off workThe name Toussaint is similar to Halloween -Tous les Saints (All the saints) = ToussaintAll Hallows (saints) evening = HalloweenBut the festivals are celebrated very differently in France and the UK.
3On November 1st, the French often visit the graves of their loved ones and put flowers (especially Chrysanthemums) on the grave. They see la Toussaint as an opportunity to remember their lost loved ones and honour their lives. It is a day for celebrating the lives of departed relatives and praying for the happiness of their souls.
4Celebrations are normally private but in some areas of France there are religious processions or parades in the street.Offices and shops are normally closed, and the only places to remain open are florists so people can buy flowers.
5Halloween is not celebrated in France as it is in the USA Halloween is not celebrated in France as it is in the USA. In France there is no trick or treating, dressing up or parties. Many French people dislike the tradition of celebrating it as they think it is too commercial.
6Although it may sound like a sad day, La Toussaint is actually seen as a very positive date – people celebrate the lives of their loved ones and it is not really a sad occasion, more of a respectful and happy day. This may be helped by the fact that it also, in most regions, marks the start of a two week school holiday, so it is easier for children to enjoy the date!
