Aww that sucks. I've always wondered how many countries actually celebrated Halloween in the world, but I know most countries have their own spooky holidays/festivals of some sort or another. Do you have a different type of Halloween in France, or is there just no Halloween equivillant at all? My old French teacher used to discuss the culture in France a lot, but our new teacher just teaches, so it's very dull and boring. >.>
And thank you very much! My family usually goes all out on Halloween. Out of the whole population of my small town (I'd have to guess 5,000 or so residents) we are one of 4 or 5 houses that make our haunts spooky, others will put cutesy decor up, which isn't bad either, at least it is something

In fact, there is different type named "Carnaval" or "Mardi gras" (litterally "Fat Tuesday"...) but it isn't a horror party, people just disguise. In fact, Halloween exist in France but it isn't as big as the american version...
Ah I understand! I've known about Mardi Gras, we celebrate it every year in French class, and we have lots of fun, but not as much as some places like New Orleans. >.> They go all out. But that sucks that Halloween isn't all that popular in France. I figured a lot of European countries celebrated it.
Of course, you don't want someody calling the cops over something like that. I think special effects can be just as scary as the grab 'em kind. The actors are much better then the people who just hide.
I know~ Just yesterday my mom started going on about Halloween party ideas. Looking at recipies, figuring out where to put us 'children' as she so well puts it. >_> We plan on creating Beetlejuice's tombstone this year, and a big "hulking" thing looming over the trick or treaters as they come to the house. Sort of like that weird ghost/spider thing at the end of Polturgiest (sp?) except my mother want's something sturdier. I come up with some good ideas, but she always wants to do something else. Won't be that way for long~
With your permission, I would love to include this piece in my horror/dark art group, Haunted Horrors. I am seeking out interesting and dark works to bring into our gallery of oddities, and would love to have you aboard! Please do feel free to stop by for more details, and thank you very much for your time and consideration!
Wow, that would be awesome! I'd love to join! Me and my parents are always into yard haunts, and we add more to our cllection each year, but the issue is always space. I'll be sure to join the club, and post some submissions when I can.
