Toussaint

Published Tuesday, 1 November 2011 by Sydney Sunny

Toussaint or All Saints day is an official holiday in France. Personally, it is about a week off of school for me during Halloween. In America Halloween is celebrated in an amazing way. Halloween means about nothing for the people of Europe. People might dress up in quite wimpy costumes and drink. However, there is no free candy. Don’t even ask.

Toussaint is a day to take care of one’s family’s graves- Wash off the mold, fix the broken stones, and place flowers on the grave. It is the day for all saints. Everyone is celebrated!

I visited Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris late Thursday to celebrate the little spooky feeling of Halloween and Toussaint.
